On Microsoft, the purple square has sharp corners and is surrounded by a black outline. On Google, the Gemini symbol is instead on an orange circle.
On Twitter, many people put the emoji representing their star sign next to their usernames in order to identify themselves. As is the case with all of the other zodiac signs, this is also true for the Gemini emoji ♊.
When the Gemini emoji ♊ is used, it is often accompanied by the word Gemini itself. This is likely done to help identify what the symbol means, as it may not be familiar even to fans of astrology.
