Twitter storm #digitalmaidan – making global outreach possible

by Mark MatlaTwitter Storm #digitalmaidan is a grass-root initiative to spread a word about President Yanukovych’s crimes and police brutality in Ukraine. By conducting Twitter Storm we attract world’s attention through a large number of pre-made tweets sent by users within defined period of time. Ukrainian Twitter Storm uses hashtags #digitalmaidan #euromaidan #ukraine. It lasts for a hour.

On Jan 23, 2014 the first Twitter Storm has been conducted targeting the issue of police violence in Ukraine.
On Jan 30, 2014 – the second one, targeting Yanukovych’s family corruption
On Feb 6, 2014 – the third one, targeting the behavior of ruling Party of Regions members, in particular ex-Prime Minister Mykola Azarov and MP Elena Bondarenko.
