UK Department Store House of Fraser's Emoji Twitter Breakdown/Campaign Was a Spectacular Fail

House of Fraser is a chain of department stores in the UK that carries "Over 1000 premium brands and designer labels" according to its Twitter description. They tried to get a little crazy with their new #Emojinal Twitter campaign and while it's certainly getting them attention, it's for all the wrong reasons. Which is fine by us, because their tweets and the confusion they caused are (perhaps unintentionally) hilarious.
