Social media distortion in wake of Westminster attack







Social media distortion in wake of Westminster attack. During the course of Wednesday’s attack in Westminster, several screenshots of Al Jazeera’s live coverage on Facebook were circulated on Twitter, Reddit and other social media websites. Some Twitter users honed in on the fact that some members of our audience on Facebook reacted to the broadcast with the smiley or love emojis. Some people jumped on the opportunity to peddle to claim that the Muslim world was laughing at the victims, but the facts say otherwise. Joining us from Malmo, Sweden, to discuss this issue is Aral Balkan, founder and lead designer of ind.ie, an organisation that describes itself as a social enterprise striving for social justice in the digital age. – Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe – Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish – Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera – Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
