‘Pridemojis’ galore for #Pride2017

Twitter has launched emojis to mark the LGBT community’s marking of #Pride2017. These emojis – i.e. ‘Pridemojis’, if you will – are “activated” when users post specific hashtags, including #Pride2017, #PrideisHappening, #LoveisLove and #PrideMonth.

Twitter has launched emojis to mark the LGBT community’s marking of #Pride2017. These emojis – i.e. ‘Pridemojis’, if you will – are “activated” when users post specific hashtags, including #Pride2017, #PrideisHappening, #LoveisLove and #PrideMonth.

This is not the first time Twitter marked LGBT Pride with emojis. Last year, Pride-related hashtags merited the rainbow emoji. This year, it’s a heart-shaped emoji divided into: the rainbow flag at the left, and trans Pride at the right.

Emojis – originally referring to pictograph – are ideograms used in electronic messages and Web pages.
