Pink Shirt Day takes over Twitter, B.C.'s social media sphere (PHOTOS/VIDEOS)

Today is Pink Shirt Day in British Columbia and across Canada, and Twitter is playing its part.

From police departments to your average Tweeter, to companies and news organizations, #PinkShirtDay is flooding that light blue social network with a coat of light pink, and some of our favourite plucks from the Interweb have been embedded below.

Pink Shirt Day aims to stand up to bullying with phrases like 'Bullying Stops Here' and 'Be a Buddy, Not a Bully', messages intended for students, parents, and teachers to get behind. You can follow Pink Shirt Day on Facebook, on Instagram, or on Twitter – where you can join in on the dialogue with the hashtag #PinkShirtDay – as well as visit their website at PinkShirtDay.ca.

(*Black Press is a media sponsor of Pink Shirt Day, and been the day's media sponsor since its founding. We are proud to play our part.)
