#IllRideWithYou

Wednesday 17th December / posted by Chris Wheeldon

In light of the Sydney Siege, many people were worried that there would be unnecessary and far fuled violence and general blame towards the islamic community.

This was what inspired Tessa Kum to create the hashtag #illridewithyou. The idea behind the hashtag being an invitaion for anyone wearing religious attire who feared for their safety that they would be safe to ride with the people that posted this hashtag.

The hashtag was quickly picked up by thousands of people, emassing 150,000 tweets with the hashtag in just 12 hours. One of these people was playwright, social comentator and Guardian collumist, Van Badham.

Van Badham's tweet went viral and kickstarted a display of how social media can positively handle acts of terrorism.

Tanya Bunter spoke with Van about social medias reaction and it's future in the media.
