Script for Categories 1,2 and 3

Category 1: Own stories

 

Many women decided to show their support to the trending hashtag by sharing their own stories on Twitter. Twitter as a platform enables them to share what they want to say to the world (this within the limit of 140 characters per a tweet) and this twitter storm enabled them to feel validated in sharing their experience with sexual misconduct as it rendered them part of a bigger movement of sensitization about the reality of what women go through on a day to day basis. Victims finally had a place where they could voice their stories and, allegedly, be heard and believed. It is something women can all relate to, even those who do not usually engage in ‘social media politics’ felt like they could because they were asked to share their own personal stories. As the multitude of tweets show and even as a quote from some of them, it is nearly impossible to find a woman who cannot on some level say me too. From the 15th of October Twitter was flooded with stories and what we would like to address here is who these stories were heard by.

Twitter’s workings make some accounts verified and high-profile, giving them much more visibility than normal accounts, therefore, while some tweets got over one thousand likes and hundreds of retweets, some got absolutely none.
As you can see, while a simple generic tweet saying just #metoo got 1.3k likes, more detailed tweets where women have taken their time and braved to share what has happened to them get none or very few likes or retweets. This arguably validates certain voices more than others.

But then again, does it really matter how many times a tweet was seen? Is that really what validates an experience and the contribution to the movement? We don’t believe that any experience is more valid than any other, and all women sharing this are of the same opinion, but it is arguable that by enabling some tweets to be seen more than others, putting them at the forefront of the twitter storm, it seems that the way that Twitter works is somehow validating some people’s #metoo over others.

This said, we do take into account that it is arguable whether this really matters, what matters most is that these people sharing their #metoo stories got the movement off the ground and the issue recognised and talked about.

 

 

Category 2: Skeptics

 

  • Very few at the beginning, because there was a general enthusiasm for the movement and little reflection on what it actually means and was consequences it would have.
  • These Tweeters share their doubt about the movement’s purpose and whether it will really change anything, which is an understandable position to hold about an activist movement on social media. They ask, what will tweeting #metoo change? They have voiced their experience over and over again and have not been heard or believed, and indeed, doubt whether simply tweeting that them too have been wronged and made a victim will change the way they feel about it or the way in which people listen to what they have to say.
  • This tweet has noticed the same point we made in contrasting high-profile accounts with normal ones, (read tweet)
  • It is notable to say that in this section, we have found very few liked and retweeted tweets, and they are not very numerous.
  • It seems that people generally do not want to go against a popular trend, which is a way to qualify this twitter storm, on such a public platform. If they were to voice their full opinion about the movement they could easily be attacked and shamed by anyone, and there is no telling where this attack will end, the more a tweet is responded to, the more it is retweeted, the more it becomes visible. Therefore, many people surely restricted themselves to go against the movement, afraid they will be talked down to and labelled as an ‘anti-feminist’.
  • So their voices are somewhat stifled too.

 

 

Category 3: Allies

 

  • Many did not necessarily share their story but did share their support or simply reposted the generic tweet (show) to help raise awareness about the movement. This copy/paste action is very representative of twitter storms in general and is how they get off the ground.
  • A lot of women simply rejoiced in the movement, in knowing that they are not alone and urging women to share their stories and speak up showing respect for those who have and comforting victims.
  • Many accounts have actually been created for the sole purpose of adding their tweet to the #metoo movement.
  • On some level, it seems to twitter movement has become some kind of trend, of fashion, where everyone must say #metoo and be part of this new and online feminist movement, part of all the ‘sisters’ who unite with similar stories. It enables anyone and everyone to feel like they are an activist of a sort and somehow this has become something that all women needed to be part of, and should even feel bad if they didn’t take part, it became something ‘cool’, the new trend to adopt. To the extent that accounts were created for that sole purpose, to be included.
  • Talk about the tshirts and tweets that did not relate to the movement but said #metoo? (see with girls)
  • It can be contended that this twitter storm, while it has very serious grounds and a powerful message, quickly became a sort of frenzy or a trend because of the way the social media platform and our society in general functions, where something becomes popular and therefore needs to be adopted by all, which on some level took a lot from the movement, rendering it less serious and profound but rather a cool new feminist hashtag, because it’s become ‘cool’ to be a feminist. And it took a lot from the voices of the victims, this aspect of the movement somewhat took what was a serious and difficult thing to say for a lot women and changed it into something that makes them part of a trend. This way, as a platform that creates trends and is used by so many, Twitter has arguably made of the #metoo movement a sort of trend, the ‘new thing to do’ in October 2017.

Comparison Ideas

Hey guys,

 

Here’s the notes about the Data Comparison that we discussed today:

 

  1. Own Stories
    1. Compare high profile/verified tweets with the bulk of people sharing their stories
    2. Twitter in it’s workings facilitates verified or high profile accounts being seen more than ordinary ones
    3. This arguably validates their voices more than others.
    4. Potential counter-argument?
  2. Skeptics
    1. Very few at the beginning, because of general enthusiasm for the movement and little reflection on what it actually means
    2. Noticed our point from slide 1 about celebrities having more valid experiences.
    3. Hardly any verified or liked/retweeted tweets in this section.
    4. People not wanting to go against a popular trend – so easily attacked by anyone.
    5. People who don’t necessarily agree with this movement still deserve a voice in this movement.
  3. Allies
    1. How many people are allies or actually victims
    2. ‘Copy and paste’ phase of the twitter storm which is reflective of the twitter storm in general
    3. People creating accounts for Me Too only.
    4. Me Too as a trend or a frenzy rather than something more profound. Takes a voice away from people involved in the movement.
  4. Men
    1. Split into people redefining the movement, people owning up to what they have done, and personally victims.
    2. The movement needs to include everyone for it to be a good movement.
    3. Provides a voice to victims and to victimisers to apologise, but they haven’t used that opportunity, and is it justified or enough of an apology?
    4. Questions about redefining the movement and who it is for.
    5. Tarana Burke – who the movement is for?
    6. The Me Too hashtag has been around for much longer than last october and used for a variety of purposes. Our question is who decided the boundaries of the Me Too movement? Why did people take Alyssa Milano’s tweet to be the boundaries of the movement? The point that the men make about the movement being gendered is factual, but the point that they feel that their voices are not as valid is due to the way that these boundaries were drawn. This reflects society in general where victimisation of women is very easy and men are seen as stronger and less vulnerable.

CONCLUSION: Linking twitter to social media as a mode of communication and how this shapes internet activism in the modern age.

Methodology Slide

Why did we choose these categories?

Individual roles and collaboration

  • Ciara: finding and compiling the source set, making overview statistics and graphs
  • Anna Lisa: analysing this data and providing an introductory glance to the source set.
  • Laura: scholarly articles and providing a perspective on the #Me Too movement as representative of twitter as  whole.

Choosing the Source Set

  • We chose this source set because we are trying to get a snapshot of a twitter storm, and in this case the #MeToo storm in particular. October 15th is significant for this movement as it is when Alyssa Milano sent out her original tweet mobilising the #MeToo movement.
  • Over the course of the following week, Twitter along with other social media sites such as Facebook, saw a sharp rise in tweets involving this hashtag.
  • Originally we considered only counting replies to Alyssa Milano’s tweet, but realised very quickly that this would not give us a clear snapshot of the movement, and so decided to include any tweets with the #metoo in it.

 

Finding and categorising the source set

  • In order to find the source set I used the below advanced search filter on Twitter:
  • I filtered by any tweets with the hashtag for the relevant dates. I did not want to use a third party analytics site because of the element of bias involved.
  • I also only counted tweets written in English, which is something to consider as we maybe therefore did not get a fuller picture of the movement as a global one.
  • There were XXXX responses, which I will break down in the next slide.
  • Once I had done so, I sorted the tweets into the four categories we decided on, as the broad amount of tweets seemed to fall into these categories.
  • I did not count anything irrelevant to the #metoo movement and for the purpose of time and a smaller source set, also counted out any journalistic articles or links to Facebook or similar sites as we wanted to get an idea of what Twitter could do for a movement alone.
  • We chose these categories because we are considering the effect of storms on twitter of providing a voice to a movement.
  • We need to consider lots of groups, what they are saying and the representation that they have, how these groups are being elevated or stifled by twitter.

 

The trade off between the movement and its workings

  • In order to truly see how twitter is providing voice, we have to do BOTH
  • To choose one would be to get only a partial picture of what is already only a snapshot of a global movement.

 

Elements of Bias:

  • Potential bias in our presentation would include the way in which we have analysed our data source set
  • Having done this all manually there is obviously a margin for human error
  • The way in which we have categorised and filtered it is also an element of bias
  • As women we may be particularly biased toward the movement?

Pro v. Sceptics of #MeToo

Just some extracted info on academic support of movement vs. criticism to it (I’ve also included some stuff about responses in magazines from actors but don’t want to get too into that as it might raise more questions about who has a voice etc. ) but also have a part just on criticisms on who has a voice, which is especially relevant 

Positives:

  • Empowerment: According to Freire (2006), cited in R4, Shareefah: “social change does not occur individually, but collectively as humans mobilize and function as change agents within their community… a community’s social engagement nad action should allow them to understand their role, as a community, in the injustice and their capability as a unified force for fighting against inequality and social injustice” (Shareefah 2) à Twitter is a platform which allows for different people to come together and form virtual communities with linking factor/Experience and call out, together, the injustices they have faced
  • “social media can be a platform that creates critical consciousness that can lead to social action and subsequent social justice” (Shareefah, 3)

 

Editorial criticism:

  • Men-women relationship:
    • “Of course rape is a serious crime, the letter said, but ‘trying to seduce someone, even persistently or clumsily’, is not. Men must have a ‘right to hit on women’, the French rebels said” (Spectator)
  • Defamation:
    • Liam Neeson“Men are being cast out of the entertainment world on the basis of mere accusation”
    • Jeremy Piven: “allegations are being printed as facts and lives are being put in jeopardy without a hearing, due process or evidence” (Spectator)
    • “That those who merely question the #MeToo movement can be publicly denounced as apologists for rapacious behaviour… further confirms that this supposed campaign for justice now grates against justice”

 

Scholarly criticism of the movement:

  • Victimology paradigm: “recognising inequality among genders requires conceding perceived female frailties” (R1, Tenzer)
  • Objectification of women: the “vivid details” of the “public descriptions of sexual assaults… re-inscribe women as sexual objects” (Davis, 4)
    • Yet, agency and the power within agency has always been important to feminism à “agency has always been important for feminism precisely because it is more than an individual capacity; rather, it is practice that is instrumental for social change.” (Davis, 4)
  • Outcome: “we should not assume that what is happening among the political and cultural elites will automatically ‘trickle down’ to the streets” (Davis 6)
  • Making the perpetrator visible ≠ making the problem visible: visibility should not “be taken as a solution to the problem of sexual violence” (Davis, 6)

 

Criticism we are addressing: Speaking out/ who has a voice?

  • Unheard:
    • “there are still many women who would not be able to participate” and speak out because of the “sanctions” they risk or lack of access to Twitter as a social media platform (although this second point is a bit weaker as an account is free and majority of people do have access to internet)
    • “very powerful men and women have known of others’ behaviour and never spoke up. Speaking up comes with a price and many are not ready to pay it” (Davis 8)
  • Celebrities voice: “many of the women were well-known celebrities and they situated themselves as agents, not as victims.” (Davis, 5)
    • “the most visibly #MeToo women are powerful: rich and famous celebrities… the fact that they are famous and that many are speaking at the same time, makes all the difference in allowing their accusations to be heard and believed” (Davis, 5) – idea that those victims who are heard and believed are the rich and famous celebrities
  • Not included: “danger of forgetting that sexual harassment, assault and violence are very much part of everyday life of many different women and men, and that when feminists say it is a. matter of ‘power relations’ we do not actually reduce this power to a number of powerful men” (Davis 7)
  • Voice of the accused vs. accuser?
    • “media seems to believe the accusers, fully and unconditionally” (Davis 6)
    • Movement “has provided public recognition and support for individuals who have experienced sexual harassment/violence. However, it has also generated a ‘trial by media’ where individual men are publicly ‘blamed and shamed’ for actions for which they often suffer severe consequences, and before having a chance to defend themselves.” (Davis 6)

Me, too. 
If you think it's a feminist "rant," the problem is you. 
If you're not teaching your boys to respect women (and 
everyone in general), partner with them, engage and involve 
them because of their talents, their intelligence and their 
drive, the problem is you. 
If you look at the thousands of women who share their 
stories - from big to small, from words to full-on physical 
assault - and think, "what's the big deal?," the problem is 
If you want to be part of the solution, start by not doing any 
of those things above and educating yourself, opening your 
mind and commit to making a difference. Don't know where 
to start? I'd suggest this from today on IA.

How #metoo represents twitter movements as a whole

Rough rough draft of how #metoo can be linked to Twitter movements as a whole as well as some discussion on the impact/influence of Twitter. 

Social media and advancing technological communication has often been blamed for separating and individualising people, as they live and communicate with others through communication mediums such as email, Facebook messenger, private messages on Instagram/Twitter etc., rather than in-person. However, social media platforms such as Twitter, have enabled for communities to emerge as they find mutual connections, transcending geographical boundaries of the ‘real world’. Twitterstorms, to an extent, reflect this phenomenon.

The term ‘twtitterstorm’ is used to discuss certain spikes in activity surrounding particular topics and issues. Moreover, it is powerful in that it generates social action, expanding the issue to other social media platforms but also tangible action outside of the virtual world of social media, communication mediums. This phenomenon could be seen in #Ferguson, as it led to street protests and to a lesser extent, #taketheknee. The #MeToo movement is an example of social action being instigated by a contemporary issue, born out of social medi.

Contextually, the idea of Twitter and collective action is, therefore, a 21st-century issue. The 2009 Twitter Revolutions debate discussed “whether Twitter triggers revolutions, and whether twittered uprisings are effective”(Segerberg). Although Segerberg considered larger, general social protest movements such as climate change protests, this question can be applied more specifically to the #MeToo movement, the answer to which would be yes. Indeed, looking at the actions taken in response to the hashtag has revealed countless claimed perpetrators, who are under investigation.

Gladwell (2010), however, argues that social media activism cannot “bring about systemic change” as it “fails to generate committed collective action when the going gets tough.” The outcome of the #MeToo movement is yet to be known, however, in this particular issue, coming out as a victim of sexual harassment or assault on such a public platform, is arguably, in itself “tough” and the sheer responses to the hashtag (Ciara stats) whether directly on Twitter or externally such as the growth of the Time’s Up movement and symbolic support to the movement, is proof that it has generated committed collective action. Moreover, he states “the instruments of social media… are not a natural enemy of the status quo,” yet again, the #MeToo movement shows how this has evolved, as it has provided a voice and a platform to those who might have felt marginalised in society, by sharing their stories with others who had suffered similar experiences.

Proposed Introduction

This is my proposed introduction, it is just a rough draft and very much open to change!

 

On October 15th 2017, millions of Twitter users started tweeting ‘Me Too’ as a response to Alyssa Milano’s tweet which urged women to reply with these words to her tweet if they had been sexually harassed or assaulted, so that ‘we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem’. The #Metoo ‘Twitter storm’ (a sudden spike in activity surrounding a certain topic on the Twitter) originated from the allegations of sexual misconduct against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. It was coined by Tarana Burke in 2006 and was popularized last October by Alyssa Milano in order to address the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment in America and soon took on to addressing these issues in the wider context of all countries which it reached. Many public men and women spoke out about their own stories of sexual abuse and non-consensual action, or simply showed their support for the movement, calling for this kind of behaviour to be denounced, dealt with, and put to an end. This flood of very personal stories tweeted by respected icons encouraged women (and some men) around the world to show their support and contribute their own stories to the streak of #MeToo posts. On the 15th of October, there were already 25 thousand tweets with the trending hashtag.

This Twitter movement succeeded in showing the enormity of the issue and in making victims feel supported, and mainly, enabled victims to voice their stories and to be heard. Yet, it is debatable whether Twitter provided an inclusive platform for all victims to voice themselves freely or whether it is the right place for such a debate; How effective was Twitter in providing a voice to the #MeToo movement as a social platform? Who was heard, and who wasn’t? What are the limits of Hashtag activism?

While the hashtag #MeToo had been very popular until the end of the year 2017 and can still be found discussed in tweets today, we decided to limit the scope of our research to a week after Alyssa Milano’s initial tweet, from October 15th to October 22nd 2017. In this presentation, we will analyse and evaluate different types of responses to the movement before coming to the conclusion that social media platforms, such as Twitter, can both elevate and stifle certain voices at the same time.

New Presentation Outline

Hi Girls,

Here’s the new presentation outline!

Angel – please note that we have also changed our source set from replies to Alyssa Milano’s original tweet, to any tweet with the hashtag ‘metoo’ that was posted from October 15th to 22nd, 2017. This is due to your comment from the last outline, that our focus seemed too broad, and we feel narrowing it down to a week will help us focus on a narrower subject.

Question: To what extent has Twitter as a social media platform provided a voice to the #MeToo movement?

Section 1: Introduction

  • Explain the background of the #MeToo movement.
  • Define what the #MeToo movement itself tackles, or was set up to do.
  • Set out our source set (Twitter replies to Alyssa Milano’s original ‘#MeToo’ tweet on October 15, until December 31, 2017).
  • What does it mean to provide a voice to a movement? Who does this movement include?
  • Ultimately going to come to the conclusion that social media platforms, such as Twitter, can both elevate and stifle certain voices at the same time.

Section 2: Methodology

  • Why did we choose these dates?

    • Alyssa milano tweet = beginning of the majority of responses to the movement, we are analysing twitter storms
    • She sparked a lot of response to this hashtag but not necessarily to her account, so we are not only considering replies to her account.

    Why did we choose these categories?

    • Because we are considering the effect of storms on twitter of providing a voice to a movement.
    • We need to consider lots of groups, what they are saying and the representation that they have, how these groups are being elevated or stifled by twitter.

    How did we filter out on twitter?

    • Used own filters so did not run a risk of bias by using an analytics site.
    • Took any tweets that were in english, with the hashtag me too and that used ‘any of these words’.

    The trade off between analysing the movement, and the functionings of the movement

    • In order to truly see how twitter is providing voice, we have to do BOTH
    • To choose one would be to get only a partial picture of what is already only a snapshot of a global movement.

Section 3:  Source set overview

  • Overview of the movement as a functioning twitter storm
  • infographics about the number of tweets overall, broken down on each day, and what they were about.
  • the categories of responses that we chose and why.

Section 4: Responses on Twitter

4 categories of responses:

  1. People tweeting the hashtag, their own stories, allusions to their own stories (aka people sharing their own experiences).
  2. People who disagree with twitter being used as a platform for a successful or public movement about sexual harassment (including people who relate to the movement, but do not want to publicize their story for these reasons).
  3. People who have not experienced it themselves but are allies of the movement. Analyzing who is or isn’t allowed to use the hashtag dependent on their experiences.
  4. Men and the LGBTQ+ finding their standing in the debate, including men who admit to being part of the problem, and men who are frustrated with the political correctness that this has caused.

Section 5: Data Comparison

  • Showing the stark different between celebrities and non-celebrities tweeting about the issue.
  • The reactions to celebrity tweets compared to the reaction that ordinary people get to their experiences.
  • Does this validate celebrity experiences and invalidate ordinary experiences?
  • What does this say about providing a voice?
  • The people who are most disillusioned by the movement tend to be the lesser heard or voiced people among the tweets.

Section 6:  The Bigger Picture

  • This case study situated as representative of all twitter storms in general, and the effect that it has as a social media platform.
  • Whether or not twitter is appropriate for providing a voice to a movement like #MeToo.

Section 7: Conclusion and Questions

Articles about the relevance of Hashtag Feminism

These are a few points and articles I think could be useful for qualifying the response to the movement in terms of efficacy and in terms of which voices twitter enables to be heard.

Kimberlé Crenshaw on Intersectionalism: There is no frame in which African American women fit into, they are caught into the intersection of race issues and gender issues and are left to fend for themselves without a legal framework.
Of the non-inclusion of black women in the #metoo movement: http://blackgirlinmaine.com/racial-and-cultural/metoo-the-erasure-and-fetishization-of-the-black-body/

-> I’m not sure this is necessarily pertinent to our presentation but it is interesting nonetheless.

 

Doubts about Hashtag Feminism:

Hashtag activism is different because social media is a mixed-sex space.
Social media enables women to share their individual experiences and know that they are not alone but it doesn’t do much beyond that. Leaves them open to online abuse.
Believes there is little chance that hashtag activism will make a real dent in the ubiquitous experience of sexual assault among women.
Because ‘the platforms are male-owned, male-controlled corporations that reflect make values in their policies.’
-> Twitter is a male-dominated platform – even in its policies:
witter banned Rose McGowan for 12 hours for Tweeting ‘Ben Affleck, fuck off’ (October 10th)
Accused Ben Affleck of dishonesty over what he knew about Weinstein’s alleged behaviour.  Yet over 2.6million antisemitic tweets were sent last year, Trump tweets antisemitic, misogynistic comments but someone who calls Trump a ‘moron’ is banned.
And a woman at the heat of the biggest Hollywood scan perhaps, ever, isn’t newsworthy?
It is also common for social media moderators to refuse to remove what women report as misogynistic posts, instead classifying this content as “controversial humor”.
In this cultural climate, hashtag activism represents an impoverished form of feminist activism, containing few possibilities for sparking real social change. Feminists need to recreate women-only spaces if they want to freely discuss ideas and challenge men’s dominance.
1rst reaction: outrage, why do you need to see me blend so that you can believe that this is endemic?
Whenever a woman tells her story and when a report is published reporting women’s abuse en masse, there are always people (men predominantly) ready to look for a way to doubt them, about the role that their attire, route home or employment, may have played in their abuse.
Why then should any of us believe that our confessions make a difference? – #metoo came to feel like gussied up voyeurism.
GREAT ARTICLE, positive about hashtag feminism
