Monday Mashups: The Pope and Emojis

When I read this article, it was too good not to share, especially for a Monday morning! As some of you may know, Pope Francis is visiting the U.S. starting September 22nd. He will be meeting with the President in Washington, D.C. which has social media buzzing. To promote his presence and first visit to America, Swyft Media has developed the Popemoji app which debuted today!

Want an emoji of Pope Francis standing next to the Statue of Liberty? You got it. Posing next to the Lincoln Memorial? Right there at your fingertips! Commissioned by global Catholic network for the "#GoodIsWinning" campaign, the keyboard was designed to engage young people on social media as soon as the pope lands. It only makes sense that the world would need to see some Popemoji tweets being fired off and a top trending hashtag upon his visit, so download the app today!

The emoji keyboard comes complete with 52 pope-themed stickers and 14 animated GIFs of his holiness at popular tourist attractions and landmarks. We are excited to see what comes of these emoticons and look forward to the pope devouring the details of his visit to the U.S.!
