The Latest Updates
1.Get Registered to Vote with @Gov
As we all are aware of the sensational news prevailing now. Yes, it is about the Presidential elections in the USA. This is the matter which is having a serious discussion throughout the world. You can judge from the below video, how efficiently Twitter is playing its part in this election process.

Day before yesterday, the National Voter Registration Day was kicked off at Twitter DC. This action also included the introduction to new ways to help people to register themselves to vote through Twitter and also encourage others to do so.
This is done as, when people send private Direct Message to Twitter’s @Gov account with the 5 digit zip code, he or she will receive a direct message response which is automatic. This will include that person’s state voter registration deadline and also a personalized link to get registered.
This is so simple to do and enjoy your voting process.
It was also informed that as the election days will get closure, Twitter’s partnership with Google’s Information Civic API and Pew’s Voting Information Project will be powered by @Gov account so that it would be easy to answer additional questions from the voter’s side. Like polling place location and other information related to the election.
2. Two Anniversary of #HeForShe on Twitter
It was two years ago, United Nations has launched HeForShe campaign through UN Women. It is the global solidarity movement for gender equality that has encouraged the people all around the world to stand together so that the changes are made.
Last week was the 2-year Anniversary celebration of this campaign. One of the ten corporate IMPACT Champions who is in support of HeForShe campaign was feeling proud to celebrate the 2-year anniversary celebration. Twitter is the site which has supported many movements and #HeForShe has also played a real time on Twitter. And this has created meaningful space for the global movement.
And in order to support this significant campaign Twitter has created a special video which had captured the global voice of HeForShe. Also has re-launched the popular #HeForShe emoji, which is Tweeted each time.
