How to fix the #Resign hashtag on Twitter to stop its spread
Posted February 24, 2019 15:04:56It’s no secret that the hashtag #ResendTUSK has spread like wildfire across the internet in recent days, as well as on social media platforms such as Twitter.
However, some students at the University of Akron, a historically Black college in Ohio, are concerned that the word “resign” is causing more problems than it’s solving.
On February 21, Akron students gathered in a room to discuss the hashtag with one another.
After the discussion, one student took the mic and said, “We’ve seen a lot of hashtags, but theres never been a time like this when theres a hashtag that has been spreading as fast as #resign.
We can’t just keep going with this.
We’re not going to stop talking about this.
We are trying to figure out how to fix this, because we are so fed up with this.””
I was just at a football game with my friends, and we all saw it happen.
We were all like, ‘Man, we should resign.
We should quit,'” said another student.”
So, we started getting in touch with our professors and asking, ‘Why don’t we resign ourselves?'” said the student who was not named.”
I just feel like we have to have this conversation,” said another Akron student.
“It’s just like, there’s something wrong with us.
We need to talk about it.”
In the video below, you can hear the students discuss the topic of resignation.
“Resign is not the right word, it’s not the proper word to use,” said one Akron student in the video.
“If you don’t know what resignation is, then you need to be more educated on the issue.”
“Resigning is the best thing we can do, but we also need to have a discussion,” said a third student.
The Akron student told Breitbart News that the #resolve hashtag has caused many students to lose their jobs.
“People are leaving school and they are looking for work.
Theres a lot going on that’s not working out,” said the Akron student, who added that the student has been a part of the university for four years.
The student said that the school is trying to educate students on the importance of resignation, but that they have had a hard time doing so.
“They’ve said to me that they don’t really understand the difference between ‘resign’ and ‘resigned’ because they have a social media profile, but they’re still not able to do anything,” the Akron Student said.
“I just don’t think they understand the meaning of the word.”
On February 25, the Akron Students will host a panel discussion with representatives from the university, community organizations, and student government to discuss their solutions.
“There are so many issues that we need to address.
We have to work together to get this hashtag to a stop.
I want to start a discussion about what we can and can’t do,” said Akron Students President Daniel Bostic.
“We need to work on fixing the language on social and digital platforms that are perpetuating this issue.”
For the Akron students, the hashtag has also caused a lot more confusion.
“Theres a little bit of confusion on what it is, what its meaning is,” said Dr. Jadali Williams, who has been part of Akron students social media team since 2012.
“A lot of people are confused about it, and people are really looking for some kind of consensus on what is it.
But it’s definitely an issue that needs to be discussed.”
Williams explained that the students have been working with the university to address the hashtag, but are still struggling with some of the details.
“One of the problems that we have with the hashtags is that they get mixed up with a lot different groups of people,” she said.
Williams said that students have used the hashtag to highlight issues within the university that have not been highlighted.
“Some of these issues have really been overlooked and have not gotten as much attention as they should have.
I think that is a concern that we should be looking at, but it’s also a concern with the word ‘resolve,'” she added.
“When you’re talking about these issues, we can’t say, ‘We’re trying to get everyone to get on board with this issue.’
We have a lot to be talking about.”
