Twitter India launches emoji for Lok Sabha elections

As General Elections are approaching in India, political parties multiplied their election campaigns on social media.

In this context, Twitter India launched an emoji for Lok Sabha elections in 12 languages. This emoji is in multiple languages including Hindi, English, Bengali/Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Odiya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu.

Yesterday, Twitter India wrote on the platform saying a special emoji has been launched in 12 languages considering the #LokSabhaElections2019 as they are in just 20 days. People can use this emoji in their election conversation with the mentioned hashtag.

Aiming to encourage healthy participation in election-related discussions, this special election emoji has been launched by Twitter India.


This emoji will be available until May 31, 2019. It structures the design of the Parliament of India.

Initially, the Election Commission of India (ECI) wrote on Twitter asking voters to check their voter list by calling the voter helpline or SMS at the given number to make sure that no voter is left behind.

It also said that those who did not register can register on http://www.nvsp.in.

Then, Twitter India welcomed the Election Commission of India and sought to raise voter awareness jointly for Lok Sabha Elections 2019 which is like a big festival for the country.

The ECI started its Systematic Voters’ Education and Electoral Participation program (SVEEP) on Twitter (@ECISVEEP) to promote more voter awareness through social media. The handle was launched on Holi.

In this regard, Mahima Kaul (@misskaul), Director, Public Policy and Government at Twitter India said that India is the world’s largest democracy. The forthcoming elections are important for them on Twitter.

She added that Twitter has taken many important steps to protect the integrity of conversations on it. Election-related conversations dominated Twitter and they are honoured to join increasing voter awareness and education through this social media platform.
