On Wednesday the Daily Mail published a front page that vehemently opposed David Cameron’s EU ‘deal’. Evoking the spirit of pre-war Britain, it asked: “Who Will Speak for England?”
On cue, Twitter (as a collective entity, rather than a plateauing corporate) sprung into action, rhetorically answering the question #whowillspeakforengland?
The platform’s multiple in-tweet picture functionality did the rest…
I had a go, obvs:
With over 35,000 mentions on twitter of the hashtag (not including the countless other efforts without it) we can safely call that a meme, and a successful one.
It’s one of those occasions Twitter really comes into it’s own.
What a time to be alive.
