This November, Twitter photo app Twibbon is letting users add a Remembrance Day poppy to their display pictures.

Remembrance Day is celebrated on November 11th across Commonwealth Nations. It commemorates fallen soldiers, and is widely marked by wearing a red felt or paper poppy on one's lapel. The equivalent of this act of respect in the digital age is, of course, to add a Remembrance Day poppy to one's social media profiles.

Twibbon has contributed to past campaigns of honor and support by letting users add symbols like pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness to their Twitter display pictures. It's a great example of the ability to take a timeless tradition and modernize it to keep up with current technology and styles.
