Social media platforms have collectively amplified the examples of the worst behaviour by both the law enforcement agencies i.e. the police, the protesters, and the instigators at the expense of the many demonstrations across the world that have been peaceful. The effects of social media are not necessarily the same, however, because people are more likely to follow and be friends with the like-minded, the social media platforms seem to moderate the speech of public figures, like Donald Trump, and are shaping the broader discourse around the global protests such as that of the killing of George Floyd. Social media dynamics (Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and TikTok are influence public understanding of what’s transpiring across America and the world.
