Pride online: Easter eggs on Google and Twitter

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      As Pride has kicked off across North America, social media companies have gotten their rainbow game on too.

      Google is back with a few Easter eggs.

      As in previous years, if you run a search for the terms "gay", "lesbian", "Pride", "marriage equality", or several other queer-related terms, you'll find a fancy schmancy rainbow banner headlining your search results.

      But if you open up a spreadsheet in Google Docs and type out the letters PRIDE (with one letter per column from A1 to E1), the spreadsheet will transform into a rainbow of fruit flavours! Whee!

      Meanwhile, if you hashtag "pride" on Twitter, you'll find a nifty little rainbow flag showing up after you tweet it.

      (Country flags are appearing when you hashtag World Cup countries, but hopefully they'll have one for #Canada on Canada Day…)

      Happy Pride to all!
