They used over 1000 bot accounts to trend that - and to mess up #stopTheCoup Why would they, if trending tags didn't matter?
Needless to say doing this (making 2 for no reason) helps no one. Please try really hard not to do this.
see tweet #7 - this means that it is much easier to trend a new tag, than to trend one in current use. (sea level / ground level etc)
Some are truly spontaneous, others are planned #DefendOurDemocracy
The chances of something coming from Mars are a million to one
But do only use tags that are relevant. #StopTheCoup
USE IDENTIFIED #REMAIN TAGS rather than reinventing the wheel!
Use new or event tags for events ONLY - otherwise stick with existing ones. It really helps us.
If you want a tag - check if one exists - if it does - use it. Don't be a splitter!
