How to remove a meme from a tweet
The tweet below has been circulating since late December, when President Donald Trump used it to attack a Democratic congresswoman.
The tweet was later deleted by the president, who called it “a disgrace.”
But the tweet remains on the Internet, with millions of users posting variations of the phrase.
On Friday, The Hill reported on the case, which has become the latest example of the internet’s ability to turn memes into viral sensations.
“This is the perfect example of how social media can be used as a tool of hate and manipulation,” wrote the author, Andrew Weisz.
“As a result, this tweet was viewed more than 2 million times on Twitter alone.
The original meme was later reposted hundreds of times, making it the most shared of the three.
But it has been removed more than 30,000 times.”
The Hill described the trend as the “worst viral meme of the year,” with the most popular variation being the tweet “The best meme of all time.”
The article also pointed to another case of a meme being used as “hate speech,” when a tweet posted on January 3 read, “We will not accept the outcome of this election, it is rigged.
We have had enough!”
It was quickly deleted by Trump.
But another tweet in January said, “All you black people should take a hike, we can get the election out of your hands.
If you don’t like it, don’t vote.”
