Anti-Baxer meets ARMY.
ARMY is made up of millions of BTS fans. And they have a new hashtag #ARMYvaccinatedtoo about the Covid-19 vaccine. Now the ARMY hashtag is like adding an avocado to something. It’s very likely to be pretty formidable. So it’s not surprising that as of 9 pm today, #ARMYvaccinatedtoo had already outpaced Twitter’s US trend with 24.6K tweets and easily kept words like “No vocalin” away. bottom.
Hashtags appeared after BTS, a well-known K-pop group at OMG, spoke at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly today. Yes, it was basically an incredible look. So J-Hope, a member of BTS, told Congress: And yes, of course, all seven of us were vaccinated with COVID-19, “see the video that accompanies the next tweet from the United Nations.
BTS has appeared in the General Assembly Hall to support UN 2030 goals such as eradicating poverty and hunger, achieving gender equality, reducing inequality and addressing climate change. Bandleader RM emphasized that “every choice we make is the beginning, not the end of change.”
BTS is a special envoy from South Korea and was introduced by South Korean President Moon Jae-in and described as “a very good group of young people who connect with young people all over the world.”
You can see the whole presentation in the next video from ForbesIncludes a special performance of the hit single “Permission to Dance” at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City:
BTS was formed in the early 2010s and has created a worldwide sensation ever since. They produce hits and write their own songs and lyrics, many of which are socially conscious.Their list of praises includes becoming the first Korean band to make their album debut at # 1 on the US Billboard charts and performing at several well-known venues, including: Good morning, America When Saturday night live.
Oh, and they have an army behind them. Not an army. Not an army. However, ARMY stands for Adorable Representative MC for Youth. ARMY is made up of millions of BTS fans and has become a hot spot on social media. BTS’s YouTube channel has over 40 million followers. ARMY operates a Twitter account with over 30 million followers.
In recent years, many K-pop fans, including ARMY, have been engaged in social activities on social media. For example, in June 2020, then-US President Donald Trump, who now lives in Mar-a-Lago, planned to hold a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.As I explained Forbes At that time, the rally was scheduled to take place when the Covid-19 coronavirus was being promoted in the area. It was like trying to cook flambé while the house was on fire. K-POP fans then decided to book thousands of seats at the rally through the Trump Campaign website. This helped convince the organizers that there are far more participants than they will eventually appear.
They also undoubtedly drowned hashtags such as #WhiteLivesMatter and #WhiteoutWednesday in K-pop photos and videos, further offending white supremacists.
And now ARMY may take on the anti-vaccer with the hashtag #ARMYvaccinatedtoo. As you can see, there are many anonymous anti-vaccine social media accounts that can make the anti-vaccination movement look more like an army than it really is. It is not clear how many people are actually behind a particular set of accounts that continue to disseminate false or disinformation about the Covid-19 vaccine. After all, one person can easily start and maintain dozens of Twitter accounts and make them appear to be communicating with each other like real people.
They have already tried to contaminate some of the responses to #ARMYvaccinatedtoo tweets. However, it may be like a peek at a tornado given the traction that hashtags have gained. The following is an example of a tweet using a hashtag.
And here’s another:
This reminds people to wear a face mask even after being completely vaccinated:
Another acknowledged the fear of injections, but emphasized the importance of overcoming it:
Then there was this tweet from someone who described himself as an ophthalmologist and a member of BTS since January 28, 2018.
So will this new hashtag be a gin and tonic against the sour disinformation disinformation prevailing in the anti-vaccination account for the Covid-19 vaccine? Maybe. It’s hard to counter the unfounded claims that the Covid-19 vaccine alters your DNA, sticks a key to your forehead, or inflates your cousin’s friend’s ball. But when ARMY is mobilized, it can be a bit of a “mic drop”.
