Social Media as a Weapon
One strongpoint of these US-funded anti-government protests here in Thailand is their social media game.
They claim it’s is because it’s a “youth movement” and they are simply better at using technology than the so-called “old” establishment. But this isn’t true. The US-funded anti-government protests are so successful on social media because the US-based social media networks they are using have tilted the entire game in their favor.
