Twitter launched a series of emojis for the Rio 2016 Olympics but unless you are an official sponsor you cannot use them.  The Olympic Committee has declared all non-sponsors are forbidden from tweeting about the games, using the “trade marked” hashtags, or retweeting from the official Olympic Team accounts.

Unless you are a news outlet or pursuing an educational purpose you can’t have your brand say this summer:

  • Let the Games Begin
  • Future Olympian
  • Olympian
  • Olympic

The International Olympic Committee have relaxed some rules allowing brands which are not official Olympic sponsors to promote their relationship with Rio 2016 athletes.
