Protesters have peacefully gathered on Wall Street in a movement designed to enforce social justice, and people are supporting this movement all around the web. What do the social media numbers tell us?
First of all, the general attitude is fairly positive, but half of the tweets were neutral, which is rather unusual for a civic protest that fights for a solution and is mainly comprised of complaints and demands. That means that half of the people are passing the message around and are not that invested in the action, but they did produce more than 17 million estimated views.
As for the tools in use, Twitter is the main engine driving these Internet conversations, just like it happened in the Arab Spring movements – this social network has proven to be a real aid in social revolutions.
