There’s recently been a Twitter war – or “twar” – between PTI, PML-N, and PPP, and the findings are amazing with fun.
How is each political party and class fighting a war to justify their stance?
General Carl Phillipp von Clausewitz (a Prussian general and military theorist) famously said that “war is politics by other means.”
It seems that what he said is likely becoming true in recent days, especially in Pakistan.
In past times, political battles were fought in backroom offices, on the battlegrounds, and on editorial pages in newspapers.
But with the roller coaster of booming 5th generation warfare, these battles are fought digitally. These are all online. Tweets, likes, and comments are all weapons of war.
These munitions are fired endlessly by the public, media houses, and political classes from their digital media cell. Luckily, unlike other weapons, these weapons leave behind big data trails that are also fun and entertaining.
As we head into details, it would become amazing to see how things have changed since the war between the political parties PTI, PML-N, and PPP started.
As the data below shows, the fighting is still fierce, and the open space is still widened. Let’s look at each of the details.
War started when the former prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, was removed from his office.
Pakistan’s Twitter space flourished with the messages of solidarity with IK. The top trend was “#imported Hakoomat Na Manzoor.” #امپوڑٹڈ_حکومت_نامنظور 340 k
Extreme love and support are flourished on Twitter with the hashtag #LahoreJalsa 764.2k
This one is against the allegation of Maryam Nawaz about Imran Khan’s use of robots to boost Twitter trends.
“PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz said Monday another “lie” of PTI Chairman Imran Khan had been unveiled after the government “exposed” the PTI’s recent Twitter trends.”
Imran Khan Set A New Record On Twitter Space:
Khan went live on multiple social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, where his video was seen hundreds of times, but he allegedly drew the most attention on Twitter, where at least 1.1 million people tuned in to listen to his 16 hours session after it ended.
Trending in Pakistan is #pakistandemandselections, and #imrankhanLIVE, with 64.7k tweets until now.
