The Pope will be welcomed to Ireland in many ways and participants in the World Meeting of Families have many ways to get information and stay connected. Twitter has created a special emoji for the visit.
This unique emoji can be triggered using a number of hashtags including #PápaInÉirinn,(Irish) #WMOF2018 and #FestivalOfFamilies.
Quoted in Vatican News, Brenda Drumm, media & communications manager for the World Meeting of Families 2018, said, “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.”
