Twitter has changed its Pride and #LoveIsLove heart icon from a singular rainbow to a rainbow along with a blue and pink element.
Twitter has added a gender element to its #LoveIsLove and #Pride2017 heart icon to celebrate the start of Pride month across the world. The full rainbow icon was launched last year with the trending of the #LoveIsLove hashtag, but has now had a blue and pink element, which echoes the transgender pride flag, added to the left-hand side of the heart, which some had said has added a sense of unity for the community.
Twitter users took to the social network to show their love for the new design, with many users commenting how “cute” the new design was.
I love it, it is amazing. It really gives unity to community.
