Immediately after BTS's "Butter" was launched, multiple hashtags in connection with the K-pop boy group and their comeback song, including "#BTS_Butter," "#BTS," "#BTSBackWithButter," "#BTSArmy," and "#SmoothLikeButter" have all risen to the top of the global trend on Twitter, proving BTS's worldwide popularity.
Meanwhile, Twitter has provided a special emoji to celebrate the release of BTS's new English-language single "Butter." From April 28, if fans would use the hashtag "#BTS_Butter" when writing a post on the platform, a heart-shaped yellow butter logo symbolizing BTS's "Butter" will automatically be applied to the tweet. And if the hashtags "#BTS" and "#BTSARMY" will be used, a yellow-colored BTS logo will be included.
