End SARS: Twitter creates emoji to support protest

Popular micro-blogging site, Twitter has created an emoji in support of the #EndSARS protest currently ongoing in Nigeria and several other cities across the globe.

Now, whenever #EndSars is typed on Twitter, an emoji of a shrouded fist colored green, white, green appears in front of the hashtag.

The #EndSars emoji comes in less than 48 hours after Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey declared support for the protest, PMNews Nigeria said.

The protest continues to draw global attention as individuals, celebrities, and even organizations globally continue to throw their weight in support of the protesters.

#EndSars emoji came up on Twitter after the platform went down for hours and was restored. The glitch was attributed to an inadvertent change made to its internal system.
