The social network is also releasing hundreds of emojis for the Olympics, which will open in three days. Fans can get into the spirit by tweeting a three-letter country code hashtag displaying flag emojis for every team, including the Refugee Olympic Team (#ROT).
"Twitter, Vine and Periscope will offer fans inside access, commentary, highlights, and conversation throughout the Games and as the action unfolds," Leslie Berland, Twitter's chief marketing officer, said Tuesday in a blog post.
There will be hashtags displaying emojis in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. The social network will also offer "Twitter Buzz," a customized tour bus rolling through Rio and featuring tweets and Periscope broadcasts through its windows, along with free Wi-Fi.
