Nigeria: Twitter Creates #EndSARS Emoji in Solidarity for Nigerian Youths' Protest

After a minor set back, social media app, Twitter, has created an emoji for the #EndSARS protest ongoing across Nigerian states.

There was an uneasy calm late hours of Thursday when social media app, Twitter reportedly crashed as many could not refresh and get updates.

It was however noticed that an emoji of a tight fist now accompanies the EndSARS hashtag, of course, Nigerian youths are ecstatic about the development showering unreserved praises on the Twitter manager led by CEO Jack.

Twitter made a special emoji attached to the hashtag #EndSARS .
