Following President Trump’s executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, Silicon Valley has quickly responded with statements, feature updates, and donations to support human rights organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey criticized the policy via a tweet on Saturday — but today the company has added a “Proudly made in America by immigrants” tagline on the Periscope app’s loading screen.
“Periscope is built, maintained, and operated by people from many faiths and countries. Without immigrants and refugees, Periscope would not exist,” the team wrote in a blog post. “We feel this is an important statement to make about who we are and the real impact of these policies.”
