As the United States prepares for Pope Francis’ historical visit, Twitter has prepared its own welcome for @Pontifex
Twitter introduced a set of special emoji on Tuesday for Pope Francis’ historic visit to the U.S. The special characters include an image of Pope Francis in front of an American flag, the Capitol building, the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell. Similar to special emoji used for other major events like the World Cup, the emoji appear when specific hashtags — #PopeinUS, #PopeinDC, #PopeinNYC and #PopeinPhilly, respectively — are used in tweets.
