Hashtags that start revolutions
Twitter, really?!
Since it's 2006 conception, Twitter has increasingly been used by groups & individuals as a vehicle for social change.

Originally intended to just be "broadcast medium" Twitter, thanks to its users creation of the @ function, the #hashtag and the Retweet, it is now a very inter
active
network, easy to use in real time.

#euromaidan
In November 2013, Ukraine, still marred by corruption and political discontent, was once again whipped into a frenzy when pro-European Union Ukranians began protesting their current government, calling for the resignation of the President and his cabinet.

These protests became known as ‘Euromaidan’ and would form the basis of the 2014 Ukranian Revolution

The hashtag ‘#euromaidan’ was used by Ukrainian politican Vitali Klitschko on the very first night of protests on November 21 2013

In May 2011 an IT consultant living in Abbottabad, Pakistan, unknowingly live-tweeted the raid that would kill Osama Bin Laden. Sohaib Athar (@ReallyVirtual) began by casually mentioning how rare it was for helicopters to be in his small town before tweeting about the plane’s crash, speculating it’s connection to the US military and posting links to various news sites reporting on the event. As it turns out, his tweets were published ten hours before any official News Outlet released the story
