Celebrating Canadian tech leaders on International Women's Day 2020

By Andrea MacDonald

International Women's Day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year. Here in Canada and across the globe, Twitter uses the occasion to celebrate key female voices who use our service to connect, enrich and enlighten. 

On Twitter, a custom emoji will be unlocked each time that #EveryWoman, #IWD2020, #InternationalWomensDay and other key hashtags are used on the service.
