Politics and Social Media

I believe social media and political activism go hand-in-hand. Social media has provided individuals with the tools to participate in the political system and subsequently reinvent what we call activism. Voters used to primarily participate at the ballot box; now they can engage, interact, follow, share, etc with politics online on various digital platforms. I'd like to call this process the democratisation of media. Only publishers could create and distribute content, now everyone can participate in the debate.
