Additionally, activism has also changed over time where the upper class in society were seen as powerful and therefore had the opportunity to be the only ones to voice their values, beliefs, and thoughts onto society. Currently, through the use of technology – specifically social media platforms – anyone has the ability to express their values and push for their social opinions. This accommodation has created a change in the role of activism. Before it was primarily only people for upper class who had the status and power to make their opinions heard. Now, through the use of technology, specifically social media, almost anyone has the ability to express their opinions and push for social justice. Together, technology and activism had changed so much so that today they are used together to instill change. Twitter has utilized the trend of the hashtag to incite change.
