You can express enthusiasm with exclamations. Just make sure they sound like a natural reaction to the situation. They communicate positive emotion and work best with single words and short phrases.

Use exclamation points sparingly. They’re not required with all interjections.

Don’t follow an exclamation point with a question mark or other punctuation (unless it’s part of a title or trademarked proper noun; that’s definitely an edge case).

And don’t use a double (!!) or triple (!!!) exclamation. If you’re that excited, use visual supplements like color, illustrations, and motion to amplify the excitement. And don’t use two or three exclamatory words in a row.
