#TwitterBlackout Emerges in Protest of Trump Presidency

By Sameer Rao Nov 10, 2016

We reported yesterday (November 9) on the emergence of the #NotMyPresident and #ImStillWithHer hashtags in response to Donald Trump‘s election as president. Outside of those hashtags, Twitter users unhappy with Trump’s success—and what it could mean for the already-marginalized peoples that Trump and his supporters repeatedly targeted throughout his campaign—also rendered their avatars black and used the #TwitterBlackout hashtag to express solidarity.
