Do you rely on that crying laughing emoji on Twitter a little too much? You're not alone.

Twitter has released its top 10 emoji used in tweets for 2015 and the crying laughing one came out tops.  It also managed to bag Oxford Dictionaries' Word of the Year.

Emojis give us the comforting impression that we can be individual and expressive as we Tweet, and indeed we can, unless you find yourself using these 10 rather often, in which case you're just like everyone else!

Here's the full top 10:

1. Face with Tears of Joy emoji (commonly known as the crying laughing emoji)
