Power to the hashtag

2015 saw the birth of a hashtag that would define our rhetoric long after it stopped trending. The #FeesMustFall and subsequent #ZumaMustFall and #RacismMustFall movements relied heavily on social media support. Their impact has been an eye opener for the critics of social media activism and the lack of substantial action it is usually associated with. The last few months have provided us with a wealth of insights into the ways our audiences discover, consume, engage with and share hashtag related content outside of an incentivised setting.

Telling stories through tweets

There was a time when fitting your thoughts into 140 characters seemed virtually impossible, especially if you wanted to squeeze in a hashtag or five. Slowly but surely we weren't just able to fit fully formed thoughts into a tweet, but we were able to add images and links with ease. Our adaptation to Twitter as a user base has been remarkable, considering that we were once revelling in the freedom of 'unlimited' characters on Facebook- but what happens when what you want to share simply cannot fit into one tweet?
