At noon Friday, Twitter launched hashtag emojis for the NFL teams that remain in the playoffs.

This is the first time the NFL has worked with Twitter to do this, said Riley Fields, director of community relations for the Carolina Panthers.

For the Panthers, the hashtag –naturally – is #KeepPounding and appears with a little panther emoji with each tweet.

Emojis will go away 24 hours after a team is eliminated, Fields said.

The remaining teams besides the Panthers are the Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks.
