A lot of people are still reeling from the #gamergate meme, a hashtag created by the #NotYourShield campaign that criticized social justice warriors for speaking out against a man who was accused of harassing women online.
Now, we’ve got a new hashtag, one that’s gaining traction on Twitter and other social media platforms.
WeberQ, a new Twitter-based hashtag for those who have been victim to the #notyourshield movement, has gone viral and has gone from being an unverified, non-existent tweet in less than a day to trending in the United States, Europe, and around the world.
The hashtag has also gained traction among Twitter users who feel threatened by #gamerGate and are trying to find a way to shut down the hashtag.
While #Gamergate has a number of different targets, it has been mostly targeted at the developers and game makers of video games and video games journalism, among others.
As #GamerGaters have tried to silence critics, the hashtag has been used to make threats against critics, harass critics, and even create fake accounts of journalists.
It’s a tactic that has worked for them in the past, and it could work again.
Webers latest tweet, which gained over 30,000 retweets on Thursday, reads: You are an idiot.
You will pay the price for your idiocy.
#GamerGhazi will be back.
You can go to your place of employment and you can start posting your own tweets on the internet.
If you do that, you’ll see a bunch of people attacking you for being a fucking idiot.
I’m just telling you, there is a way out.
Websites like Destructoid and GameSpot have taken note of the trend and have started using Webers tweets to push their own news content.
It might seem like a weird move to use Webers tweet as a weapon against critics who have criticized games journalism.
But that’s exactly what it’s done.
When people started using his tweets as a way of pushing their own content and creating fake accounts to discredit critics of games journalism (and the game developers themselves), the tactic was used to silence those critics, too.
But it’s also an effective way to silence people who are criticising the games industry, too, especially if you have an audience.
You’re using that hashtag, but it’s not being used by people who aren’t gaming.
This is what it looks like when people start using it against people who criticise the industry.
That’s the problem.
Weers tweet is a perfect example of how the hashtag can be used to target those who are critical of games or who are critics of video game journalism.
In this case, that criticism came from someone who has a long history of saying nasty things about women in the video game industry.
And it’s used to drive the point home that criticism of the industry is somehow a sign of weakness.
But I think it’s important to note that the people using the hashtag have been using it as a tool for a long time, too: A lot.
We know this because Twitter has seen its own tweets get thousands of retweeters and millions of followers.
There are even people who’ve used Webers as a rallying cry for the #MeToo movement.
As we saw last week, #GamerCancel is being used to get the attention of people who say terrible things about gamers who complain about how toxic the gaming community is, but don’t want to be censored.
It could also be used by a bunch at the very least to try to shut the hashtag down.
If #GamerGamers started using #GamerGameCancel to try and silence critics of the video games industry and those who criticised the games journalists, that could very well backfire on them.
And that could result in the backlash against those critics and those journalists.
If they start using that tactic to try get those critics silenced, it could have real consequences.
In the past few days, weberQ has been trending on Twitter around the globe, with its followers growing by the thousands.
It seems that the hashtags have been taking off because it’s a perfect target for people who want to shut them down.
And the hashtag is already making its way around the internet and in social media.
If people are using Weberq to try their best to silence the critics of #GamerGamerGate, it won’t be long before it finds a new home on Twitter.
