At the end of the month, Twitter reintroduced Twitter Able with a new hashtag campaign #DisabledandAble that also has a custom emoji.
Have you noticed our Emoji for #DisabledAndAble? When designing it, the team chose an ampersand to focus on our "and" and signify:
– Intersectionality and inclusion
– Additive value of disabled employees in the workplace
– Power of allyship between disabled and abled employees https://t.co/09jBS1aJUj

This campaign highlights the power of inclusivity, the value of having employees with a range of abilities of staff, and the benefits of allyship. On its blog, Twitter wrote: “We want it known that people can be both disabled workers and able workers — that disabled employees are not less than, not there to simply accommodate.”
The Twitter Able account, and the new #DisabledandAble campaign aims to provide resources and support for all who use and work with Twitter.
