On Monday, the Guangzhou-based WeChat account Yangcheng Net (羊城网) posted an article detailing how several Douyin users had received 10-minute bans from the platform for speaking their native Cantonese during livestreams. 2/…
A pop-up notification told the streamers to “Please speak Mandarin to involve more users from other areas (of China).” Among the suggestions for “rectification” was “please speak Mandarin.” 3/

Which MusIim intellectual, scholar, actor, ANY educated MusIim (who is an Indian citizen) has sent out an appeal to their community to follow #21DaysLockdown completely?

Has ANY of them EVER sent out an appeal to their community to treat Police/Law enforcers with respect?
Has ANY of them EVER sent out an appeal to their community to stop creating #TikTok and other videos urging people to defy all rules because their faith is supposed to save them?

Has ANY of them asked for such #TikTokiyas/others from their community to be punished under law?
WHY should other communities in India NOT shun this community socially&otherwise for their safety,welfare&security,esp after #AntiHinduDelhiRiots2020

Why do MusIims've to be treated differently than other Indian citizens,AT ALL?What special contribution have they made to Bharat?

What's Tableeghi Jamat?

It is a sub-sect of Sunni Muslims, started in Mewat, an offshoot of Deobandi Muslims.

It believes in preaching through extensive traveling - on weekly, monthly and yearly basis.

These tours are called Jamat - duration ranges from 3/10/40/120 days.
Traveling is literally a self discovery kind of ideology. They preach only to Muslims who follow Tableegh or to attract more towards Tableegh. They don't indulge in religious conversions - moot point of difference between Tableegh (inwards) vs Zakir Naik (to others).
Depending on days and experience, destination is chosen - Mumbai Central Jamat will go to Andheri, Bandra to Thane - you get the point?

For 3/10 - travel is mostly intra-city or max inter-village.

For 40/120 days - it can be inter city or inter state.

Completely self funded.

I showed my year 12s a TikTok video of Gloria Gaynor lip syncing to her song “I will survive” while she washed her was a PSA and instead my lot said they lost brain cells while they watched. Those who know me well, know how this story ends...#tiktok #teacherlife
I proceeded to explain the “meta” nature of the video:
it stars a 70s disco queen...

I used to think similarly about #Tiktok until a few months back. But having studied the platform in-depth, have come to disagree with the view that it’s a ticking time bomb. It’s as much a problem as any other social media platform .. will share my 2 cents..
When #TikTok acquired Musically and became the behemoth that it is today, nobody expected it to do so well and so quickly ! The platforms growth has been phenomenal ... so much so that Zuckerberg spent time discussing it in his shareholder meetings..
Why the platform does sooo well in India (and globally) has multiple reasons ...

1) Most social media apps started with a small user base, who eventually became big (influences) and started disseminating info and views to a larger base of followers / fans / users. Not TikTok!

1/7 I have seen discussions on MDs using #TikTok and decided to make a Tweetorial about it with my limited 5 week experience.
1) What I have learned from using it
2) How is it Unique
3) Trends / Algorithm
4) Importance of Duration
5) MDs Comfort Zone
2/7 What have I learned?
It is a >500 million user interface and it is a great platform to reach a younger audience.
1) There is no other platform like it
2) Yes, there is a lot of Nonsense but that does not mean it can not be used properly
3) CREATIVITY & HUMOR R King & Queen
3/7 How is it Unique?
1) Only platform in which ANY INDIVIDUAL can make a video and get > 500K views if they have the right formula
2) Growth is definitely far stronger and QUICKER than Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, YouTube etc
3) Messages can spread very quickly

Der Fall des @RepublikMagazin zeigt: wir können den Journalismus nicht einfach dadurch retten, dass wir ein neues Online-Medium gründen. Wir brauchen eine grundlegendere Lösung fürs Digitalzeitalter. Meinen Vorschlag erklär ich @dlfkultur #Deutschlandfunk:…
Jetzt, wo die zweite grosse Finanzierungskampagne des @RepublikMagazins angelaufen ist, sollten Fans die Geldbeutel zücken. Ein Startup hochzuziehen braucht Zeit! Ich hoffe, dass Die Republik weiterlebt, und glaube, das wird klappen. Gleichzeitig ziehe ich mein Fazit:
Zu wenig Leser, zu wenig Geld, zu klein gedacht. Ihr hört richtig. Der Riesenanspruch, die Demokratie zu bewahren, durch eine starke Vierte Gewalt braucht noch mehr als den Weltrekord im Crowdfunding für Medien. Die Republik wird ihn nicht erfüllen können – egal ob sie überlebt.

A running thread of things that @Twitter could do to unlock value for users. Will add to overtime. Please feel free to retweet and reply with your own, most of these below I have just taken and summarized from others. In no particular order. 1/♾ #JustKidding 🤔 or am I?
@Twitter I drafted a tweet on my phone but of course, can't access "draft's" on the desktop. So lets maybe start there. The desktop and @Tweetdeck version should be MORE robust than the mobile app not less. Tweetdeck, for example, has no bookmarks, emoji's, live video, polls, gif's, etc
@Twitter @TweetDeck There are SO MANY great meaningful quotes, threads, replies, and conversations that vanish into the Twitter ether, drowned out by hot takes, snark, and 280 character riffs on what some influencer or politician just did. Find a way to collect and resurface this treasure trove.

Alright @sophielui - let’s break down #TikTok - the generational divide isn’t real here. Facebook mom’s have caught up to the Snapchat party, social media got predictable, Twitter kinda sucks, and everyone has run over to TikTok looking for all of the fun.
Canadian #TikTok content is diverse, multilingual, active, cultural, and honestly a lot of fun. Let’s start with food, (a big chunk of Instagram was taking pictures of food), and this kid makes videos about Canadian 🇨🇦food stereotypes.
This hockey kid @alwayshockeyy has over 50k followers who watch his sick dangles - he’s the Crosby of TikTok & I want to believe that scouts factor his social media klout into their recruiting - he has double the subscribers on #TikTok than he does on YouTube. 🇨🇦

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?…
These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.
