Yesterday, in celebration of the festival of lights, Twitter India launched a diya emoticon.

"Today, we launched our first-ever #HappyDiwali emoji to spread the festive spirit and celebrate the occasion with Indians worldwide. When you add #HappyDiwali to a Tweet, a special Twitter emoji of a lamp will appear next to the hashtag once it’s sent. The ‘diya’ (lamp) symbolises victory of good over evil, brightness over darkness, and truth over falsity," said Rishi Jaitly, vice president of Asia-Pacific and Middle East, media.
