‘The Emoji is Specific To The Irish Electorate in Design’

at

So subtly rendered.

You’d never have guessed.

This morning.

Twitter has launched a General Election 2020 election emoji which  will be ‘triggered’ by the  hashtag #GE2020 and by the Irish language election hashtag; #Togh2020.

Twitter’s Ronan Costello says:

‘’The emoji is specific to the Irish electorate in design and, like many of the products we launch, is guided by how people are already using Twitter – the hashtags that activate it have been adopted by the community and are trending each day of the campaign.

‘’We want to help people to have healthy, open, and safe civic discussion on Twitter. make it easy for those on the service to engage with and follow the national conversation”.

FIGHT!

    Inappropriate graphic design from a culturally oblivious multinational.
    A tick in box risks spoiling your vote, it should be numberes, ie 123

      It doesn’t.

      If it’s the only ticket against the candidate’s name then a preference has been stated.

        I clearly said “risks”. If you put only a tick and no other marks your intent can be interpreted, but putting anything besides numbers on your ballot is bad idea.

        It is still culturally ignorant and a bad design. More FAIL from Twitter.
