Who Pulled the Trigger?

In politics, personal insults are usually dismissed as inappropriate ad hominem attacks. On Twitter, they’re anything but. The #TriggerALiberalIn4Words hashtag, in which users list facts or ideas that they believe will “trigger” a liberal in under four words, took over the Twittersphere for a brief moment of unrestrained mudslinging and angry rebuttals.

Viral Content Challenge

Going viral does not seem like it would be a challenging thing but after setting out to do it I realized how much goes into becoming viral.

When I started this project here was my objectives were as followed:

-Post to go viral

-At least 500 views on imagur

-50 favorites on twitter

-Break the class record

Here were my results:

-Post went viral

-At least 500 views on imagur

I was not successful in getting 50 favorites or breaking the class record. I realized my strategy of tweeting out the link encouraged more people to click then favorite so by setting such a high favorite goal it was unrealistic. I needed to have just tweeted the picture if I wanted to be successful in favorites. As far as breaking the class record I do not think I failed in the category but yet I admit defeat that others were funnier than mine. I think I also would have been more successful if I did not have trouble uploading my image to twitter web cards and could have had more days to run my actual campaign. Running the twitter campaign only gained me about 200 more views on imagur. By making it public alone I was able to get 969 views. Pushing it out on imagur was my most successful tactic in going viral.

My final view count was 1137. 

In conclusion my meme went viral.
