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”.
