When deciding to choose a culture module it was not hard once I saw the #Activism module. In today’s political climate, both in the United States and globally, hashtags are our way of dissenting as a large, worldwide group of citizens who do not agree or want change. I believe hashtags truly can make a difference, especially in brining awareness to issues, which can be half the battle. Today’s technology allows social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to be very easy and accessible tools to spread information and awareness worldwide instantly. I am looking forward to delving deeper into what makes a hashtag successful and how specific hostages have been used over time.
