Twitter launches football 'hashflags' for start of new Premier League season

Twitter has launched a new set of hashflags to coincide with the start of the new Premier League season.

Tweeting the club's hashtag will bring up that team's crest and putting them together will bring up both images next to each other.

So Liverpool is #LFC and Everton is #EFC but #EFCLFC will bring up hashflags for the Merseyside derby.

Putting #BPL and #BPLKickoff in your tweet will put the Premier League trophy next to it.

#FPL brings up the league's logo.

The new hashflags are available on the opening weekend of the season (until midnight on Monday) as well as key points through the year, such as transfer deadline day and the final run-in.

Oh - and Twitter's now calling hashflags Twitter emojis BTW.

Here's a full list of Premier League teams:

Bournemouth - #AFCB
