Polling Day will arrive in two weeks' time and just like many other significant events taking place in Singapore, we’ve got a special emoji to go along with GE2020-related hashtags in our tweets. 

Twitter has hopped on board the general election hype train today by launching a unique icon that’ll automatically pop up next to these hashtags: 

  • #SingaporeElection
  • #SGElection
  • #SGVotes
  • #GE2020 

Just a little something from Twitter — which has its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore’s Central Business District — to add “a little red and white to your Tweets”.

If there's one political candidate who'll maximise the emoji's usage, it's likely to be Marine Parade GRC Tan Chuan-Jin, who's been pretty active on Twitter since earlier this year.
