Twitter to deploy ‘I am a Witness’ campaign in partnership with PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center
An eye-catching emoji designed to help expose and stop cyberbullying could soon be popping up in your Twitter feed. The emoji — a purple and black eye inside a text bubble — is part of “I Am a Witness,” a bullying prevention campaign from Ad Council, a nonprofit that produces public service messages. It was first rolled out this fall to Apple users who downloaded the iOS 9.1 update. And starting today, the emoji’s reach expands even further, as the council launches a new custom version of it through Twitter. Whenever a user’s tweet includes the hashtag #IAmAWitness, the emoji will automatically appear. To help spread its reach as far as possible, the campaign is partnering with a wide range of celebrities and groups, including PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, to help get the message out.
