Twitter creates Papal emoji for Irish visit

To mark Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland Twitter has created a Papal emoji.

The emoji is a cartoon image of the Pope against a backdrop of the country’s national colours, green, white and gold.

This unique emoji can be triggered using a number of hashtags including #PápaInÉirinn,(Irish) #WMOF2018 and #FestivalOfFamilies.

According to Brenda Drumm, media & communications manager for the World Meeting of Families 2018, ““This pope emoji is a wonderful way to connect the conversation on Twitter about Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland for our global gathering of families at WMOF2018.”

Karen White, Twitters' Director of Public Policy for Europe, said: “The visit of Pope Francis is one of the biggest events happening in Ireland this year and naturally many people will be using Twitter to discuss his time here.
