There's a cute little Easter egg on Twitter to help us get into the MAR10 spirit — if you like a tweet that uses the #SuperMarioMovie hashtag, your little heart will turn into a teeny tiny Super Mushroom.
This lovely little gimmick was pointed out by @AmethystLeslie and @somekiwi5 on Twitter under our 'Justice for Spiny' tweet. And even though it's a small detail, it's really nice to see. We're a big fan of these kinds of crossovers on social media, and we've seen it with other franchises before — often with the hashtag having a custom emoji.
Liking a tweet with the hashtag makes us feel like we're powering up the tweet itself, and it's a fun way to promote the Mario Movie, which is out in most major cinemas across the world in April.
We're sure we'll see custom hashtags and all sorts of promo for the movie in the coming weeks and months. But this is a nice little one to tide us over.
Have you spotted the Super Mushroom on Twitter yet? Let us know in the comments.

Obviously this means liking Nintendo Life’s tweet as much as possible to see the mushrooms rise! Wait, this isn’t a promo-
Twitter for Nintendo Switch CONFIRME-
Not related to the issue ... but I am still impressed that people still use Twitter to this day ...
There was a point in time (and that was few years ago) that even the defunct and "obscure" G+ had more active users than Twitter. Personally, I don´t know a single person - friend, colleague, co-worker, relative etc. who still uses it.
... or maybe it is just not popular at all in my country. Probably.
Cute, but not cuter than firing then mocking disabled former-employees (which is only 1 crap thing that Space Karen has done this week). So, no, I haven't spotted this on the birdsite yet. I'm one of the many that have moved on to better things.
A bit of a downer, maybe. So, okay mushrooms are cute.
@riChchestM “Space Karen” is the best thing I’ve heard all week, probably cause it is stupidly accurate
There is like ... a non-zero chance Twitter did this on a whim and Nintendo is going to hit them with a DMA.
In fact given Nintendo's controversy adverse nature, I would say it's pretty likely. A ton of exposer negotiating and paying for this for almost no return.
Is you're country the US? If not, then no, it's not popular their.
Twitter is TINY by social media standards. The US makes about 1/4th of all Tweets, VS the US's 4% of the world's population. It also only has around 200 million daily users right no, vs Facebook with a billion daily users and only 10% of them in the US.
Those are crazy statistics. I personally don't know anyone that still uses either site in the US. I don't use any social media anymore, but most people I know are mainly active on Instagram, Snapchat and reddit if those count
Only good thing that’s happened to twitter since Elon took over
Unfortunately that doesn't solve the problems.
Elon Musk confirmed for the next Mario Bros. Villain! duh duh done!!!
please stop promoting twitter.
Cute. Thanks Elon, you stupid d***
Elon is the best!
Mario movie is just popping off in its advertising. Please let it pay off.
I actually know Leslie thanks to Puyo Puyo!
Great to see em' here!
I came here to make a hilarious and original joke about Elon Musk, but I see I've been beaten to it by like four people...
I actually used it fairly regularly up until a few weeks ago. It was on my phone and also my home tab in my browser. It was literally the only social media platform left that was still built an in sequence feed. Everything on the same level. If you followed someone and they posted something? You'd see it when they posted it in the order they posted it. Haven't really posted to it in ages but it was useful as a kind of news feed
But they decided recently to try and direct you to a curated feed. Which shows you tweets entirely out of sequence, hides some posts and promotes stuff from people you aren't following. Between that and them nuking verified accounts? I uninstalled it and changed my home page to a news site
I´m in Brazil, here we have the sense that only media people actually use it.
Engagement is very low, regarding brands, companies or any business that uses it to promote products.
People never share anything from Twitter on other services, we see it only on "old media" (Tv , publications)
I found it weird as old media still try to push Twitter even knowing that it is a failure - at least in Brazil
