People who tweet an emoji to @NYPLEmoji get a similar image from the collections in response. The code for the project lives here: https://github.com/lolibrarian/NYPL-Emoji-Bot.
I propose creating a similar bot for Commons images. It will introduce a lot of people to the Commons collection and because it uses emoji, not words, it should translate for mobile/desktop users worldwide.
