This is one of my favorite tricks in Snapchat. I’ve always cursed Snapchat for this restriction while retyping everything just to fit into that tiny limited number of characters allowed in a snap. To execute this cool snapchat trick, first open a note in your phone.
Select a few lines of black text and copy it to the clipboard. While adding a snap, paste this black text. Congratulations, you’ve created a room of more text than allowed. Write your heart out in that snap.

If you already know what is friend emoji, then I must say you’re an active user of Snapchat. It’s basically the emoji’s that you assign for every friend in your list. Each of these emojis mean something. You can check what emojis mean here.
