Twitter assigns icon to #EndSARS hashtag



Twitter Logo

Jack Dorsey-led social networking site, Twitter, has assigned a special icon to the leading hashtag used by Nigerian users protesting against police brutality. The hashtag #EndSARS, which has been in use since the beginning of the protest, was pimped by Twitter as a solidarity fist with a masking colour of the Nigerian flag – green, white and green.

The development comes barely 24 hours after Twitter chief, Jack Dorsey, endorsed the youth-led movement via his official @jack handle, soliciting donations towards the cause.

In addition, Twitter has verified a number of handles of individuals who have been spotlighted to influence and manage the #EndSARS movement. Aisha Yesufu, described as a stallion; @feminist_co, run by Feminist Coalition group, were amongst the newly verified users. However, Segun Awosanya, @segalink, who is regarded as the initiator and convener of the #EndSARS cause, as at the time of press, remained unverified.

Meanwhile, as the agitation continues, Anonymous collective Hacker has reportedly compromised the account of the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), a development that has generated into a controversy amongst local and international observers.
