According to a report by SwiftKey, Hawaii’s “top” emoji is the surfer.
The company best known for their keyboard app analyzed more than a billion emoji to see how they were used across the country.
SwiftKey uses the data to identify trends to make their keyboard predictions more accurate.
Note that these emoji are not the most popular, but rather emoji that are more often used in a state as compared to other states.
A SwiftKey spokesperson told Gizmodo:
“To identify the ‘top’ emoji per state, we cross-referenced the list of emoji each state uses more than the US average with the emoji each state uses more than all other states. These ‘lists’ are based on the rate at which each emoji is used a state as compared to the US average, not volume of use. In general – each state’s top emoji is the one that is used the most above the US average (and sometimes more than all other states).”
