Twitter's Epic Clap Back To Trump's Inauguration Crowd

It's been over a month since *President Trump* (still can't believe it) took his oath. But it doesn't look like Twitter's going to calm down anytime soon. Here's how people are showing resistance in the day and age of social media.

Remember how America's 45th President, Donald Trump was mistaken about the number of people at his inauguration on January 20th?

Well, it wasn't just Trump, but members of his staff seem confused too. According to Business Insider, Press Secretary Sean Spicer seems to have falsified information stating that "the crowd was the biggest ever, period" even though the crowd was significantly small as compared to Obama's 2009 inauguration.

Well, it wasn't just Trump, but members of his staff seem confused too. According to Business Insider, Press Secretary Sean Spicer seems to have falsified information stating that "the crowd was the biggest ever, period" even though the crowd was significantly small as compared to Obama's 2009 inauguration.

In his first official interview in the White House with ABC News, President Trump exclaims that the crowd was massive by showing off photos from the ceremony.

That's a lie, Donald!

Here's how Twitter reacted to Trump's *MASSIVE* inauguration ceremony.

John Legend said a lot in less than 140 characters.

But it doesn't just end there. Social media users rely heavily on sharing their opinions online. But are those opinions truly making a difference? Or do they just get lost in the never ending clutter we call the Internet? There are 2 types of people we know: an Activist and a Slacktivist. The word comes from slack + activist = slacktivist (shocking, I know!) 😲

  1. How would you characterize yourself?

    According to Oxford Dictionary, an Activist is someone who actively partakes in campiagns to bring about social or political change. A Slacktivist, on the other hand, is someone who engages in political or social acts via the Internet but makes use of minimal time and involvement in the issue.

Yes, we participate in online activism, but is it really enough to make a difference in the world around us?

It is a pity to see people voice their opinions on social media but it's not like Donald Trump can hear you! It's simply humour. Ridicule. We are not doing anything proactive about it to make the change happen. Signing a petition online will certainly fulfil your heart's desire, but that's all it does. The desire will immediately be extinguished the moment you sign your name at change.org or share a Facebook post. Social media users are utilizing the power of available resources to build resistance, however, it may have little to no effect.

Trump and his administration seem to have their facts wrong and the world can see right through them. Make a difference, America! The power is in your hands. Till then, keep it up Trump! Only 4 more years to go πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
