Sinn Féin setting a trend on social media
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon said today that the party’s message is reaching record numbers of people across Ireland and beyond on social media.
Megan Fearon said; “A message promoting Sinn Fėin's agenda of change was sent to more than 560,000 people on social media sites.
“This followed a hugely successful campaign using the 'crowd-speaking' app, Thunderclap, which has also been used by The White House and the United Nations.
“The message, ‘Join growing numbers of people backing Sinn Féin. Let's fight austerity, cuts and partition together. #ImVotingSinnFein’ was generated by the app.
“It was posted on the profiles of more than half a million users of Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.
“As a result the #ImVotingSinnFein was trending in Ireland today.”
And the Newry Armagh MLA said the party was once again breaking new ground.
"Sinn Féin continues to be a trendsetter, using digital platforms to reach as many people as possible,” said Megan Fearon.
