Twitter introduces emoji for #HumanRightsDay

Twitter stands for freedom of expression and empowering dialogue. To showcase our commitment to this cause, this December 6 we released a custom-emoji to celebrate the upcoming Human Rights Day (December 10). In the Middle East and North Africa region, we’re proud to partner with Social Media Exchange to mark the launch of this emoji. The emoji is activated by the hashtag(s):

 

English: #StandUp4HumanRights #HumanRightsDay #HumanRights #HumanRightsDay

Arabic: يوم_حقوق_الإنسان#

 

The special emoji features two outstretched arms with a heart between each hand. The palms are open and welcoming. We hope this image of humanity and fellowship will foster empathetic conversation around human rights issues. While the perspectives offered by users may differ, the emoji will create a sense of unity around the conversation.

 

"Twitter encourages and celebrates the global conversation around human rights on our platform. We partner with human rights organizations, encourage their activism, and offer guidance on effective campaigning - Twitter’s NGO Handbook is an example of this commitment. Starting from a position of empathy, we hope our specially designed #HumanRightsDay emoji will encourage everyone the make their voice heard in the MENA region and around the world," says Sinéad McSweeney, Vice President for Public Policy and Communications.
