😊A face that can be taken seriously

We ask the reader: what could Elon Musk, Changpeng Zhao, Britney Spears, Snoop Dogg, and Oprah Winfrey possibly have in common? They all frequently tweet Smiley Faces.

The Smiley Face has become a ubiquitous symbol in all business communication. Quite simply, if an email or a tweet has a lot of Smiley Faces, it is probably conveying something seriously important. You may even be able to estimate the importance of a message from the number of Smiley Faces it contains. Why else would Elon Musk and Satya Nadella both use Smiley Faces with such high frequency?
