Seeley welcomes Sinn Féin Twitter hashflag change

15 April, 2015 - by Liam Mackle


Sinn Féin’s Catherine Seeley has welcomed the provision of a ‘hashflag’ by microblogging site Twitter. 

The Upper Bann candidate said; 

"Sinn Féin has the largest Twitter profile of any political party on the island of Ireland with more than 33,000 followers. 

"Despite this, Twitter had not created a hash flag for election posts and updates relating to Sinn Féin, even though they had done so for other political parties. 

"This attracted criticism online from Sinn Féin supporters who contacted Twitter to register their displeasure. 

"I am pleased to welcome the fact Twitter have taken the criticism on board and have now provided SF with a general election ‘hashflag’. 

"All the latest campaign news can be found at #SinnFein.”
