Boko Haram Mocks the Hashtag

At this point, who hasn’t mocked Obama?
Check it out:

Pope Francis called for a worldwide ceasefire during yesterday’s World Cup final. Did anybody check? Was there indeed a worldwide ceasefire? Anybody know? I mean, the pope called for it last week. (interruption) It didn’t happen? Ohhh, no, it didn’t happen? The ceasefire didn’t work? “The Vatican on Friday called for a truce in wars around the globe during Sunday’s World Cup final.” They even took to social media. The Vatican got into the hashtag business. It was #pauseforpeace.

Another hashtag bites the dust. Another hashtag bombs out. How much more of this can Twitter take and still maintain any credibility?

In fact, the leader of Boko Haram, in a video, made fun of and mocked the BringBackOurGirls hashtag. Oh, yes, he did. Abubakar Shekau released a new video mocking the social media campaign that highlighted the kidnapping of the schoolgirls taken by his group. We have just a little 16 second excerpt of the sound bite.
