Twitter has announced that it is "pleased to help people celebrate with new #Ramadan and #Eid icons."

According to the company's blog, if tweeters use a hashtag (#) immediately in front of the words Ramadan or Ramazan and for Eid, use a hashtag (#) in front of the word Eid, then the special icons (pictured) will appear after those words. It's research shows that people sent more than 74.2 million tweets about Ramadan from around the world last year.

Twitter also announced that it has partnered with @AlArabiya to help Muslims find out, with a Tweet, what time each day they can break the fast.

Users can tweet @AlArabiya with #iftar followed by the name of their city with a # immediately in front (e.g. #Dubai), and the @AlArabiya account will send you the time for #iftar. This also works for #Imsak (or beginning the fast).
