Red flag emojis are populating all over Twitter. People all over are taking to Twitter to write about what they consider red flags or warning signs.

Merriam-Webster defines a red flag as “a warning signal or sign.” It’s also known as “something indicates or draws attention to a problem, danger, or irregularity.” Apparently, the term has been floating around in 1748.

Today, Yellowstone is partaking in the red flag action tweeting out “I’ve Never Seen Yellowstone.” Considering the wide popularity of the TV show, that is a big red flag.

Yellowstone, an American drama television show created by Taylor Sheridan and John Linson, is aired on Paramount. The show depicts the Dutton family who owns and controls the largest ranch in the United States. It’s consistently under attack by impeding intruders and is America’s first national park. Kevin Costner stars as John Dutton and Kelly Reilly as Beth Dutton. It’s one of the biggest TV shows today as ratings continously grow.

Sheridan says, “”The challenge to this world is… it’s not a terribly difficult plot. But if you didn’t grow up with cowboys and in this world, and you don’t know this world, it’s a really hard world to write because you’re going to fall back on the clichés of that world,” Sheridan said. “People tune in to the show for varying reasons, but the authenticity of the show is its bedrock. From the saddles that are used, from the kind of horses that we use, to the situations that I place them in that if you don’t spend your afternoons moving cattle, you don’t know those situations exist.”

Season 3’s finale brought 5.2 million viewers, making it the most-watched scripted cable television show of the year.
