AFCON 2021 Participating Countries Get Twitter hashflags

Spread the love

The microblogging platform, Twitter, has set dedicated hashflags for each of the countries participating in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

This means that fans of the countries will be able to interact with these hashflags.

Hashflags are basically a combination of hashtags and emojis.


The 2021 AFCON starts on January 9, 2022, and ends on Sunday, February 6, 2022, in Cameroon.



The tournament involves 32 countries who are competing, starting groups of four, and later in elimination stages. It was scheduled to take place in 2021 but had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hashflags start with a hash sign(#), the word ‘Team’, followed by the countries’ names and emojis of their flags. To use them, football fans just have to type out the hashtag, for example l, #TeamGhana and the hashflags will be automatically activated.

“To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent,” the company said in a statement on its blog.

“We still have much to learn, but we are excited to listen, learn, and engage. Public conversation is essential to solving problems, building shared ideas, and pushing us all forward together. We can’t wait for the next step on that journey,” the statement also said.
