Throughout history, art has been used as an accessible tool for communication, raising awareness about social issues, and affecting positive change. “Hashtag activism” is a term coined by media outlets that which refers to the use of Twitter’s hashtags for Internet activism. The point of “hashtag activism” is arguably to share certain issues with one’s friends and followers in the hopes that they will also share the same information. This leads to a widespread discussion and allows for change to occur. They can be seen as a way to help or start a revolution by increasing the number of supporters from across the world who have not been in contact with the issue.
