Sinn Féin Derry representative Liam Friel said today that the party’s message is reaching record numbers of people across Ireland and beyond on social media.
“This followed a hugely successful campaign using the ‘crowd-speaking’ app, Thunderclap, which has also been used by The White House and the United Nations.
“The message, ‘Join growing numbers of people backing Sinn Féin. Let’s fight austerity, cuts and partition together. #ImVotingSinnFein’ was generated by the app.
“It was posted on the profiles of more than half a million users of Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.
“As a result the #ImVotingSinnFein was trending in Ireland today.”
He said the party was once again breaking new ground.
“Sinn Féin continues to be a trendsetter, using digital platforms to reach as many people as possible,”.
