  1. ShiaChat joins Twitter!

    In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful. As-salaamu `alaykum dear friends, The ShiaChat staff have created a ShiaChat page on Twitter.

The URL to the ShiaChat Twitter page is: https://twitter.com/ShiaChatForum Please visit us at @ShiaChatForum follow our Twitter feed, share it with your family and friends and like and retweet to your heart's content! You can also help us by suggesting things in this topic that you would like to see us tweet or by giving suggestions on how we can improve our social media outreach.

  2. (bismillah) (salam) Recently, I had been playing with Twitter data, specifically for the purpose of mapping tweeters that tweet Shi'ite messages during the first 10 days of Muharram. My hope was that we will extract a large data set, comprising Shi'ites tweeting about Ashura, Karbala, or Syed al Shuhada (as). My aim was to plot large Shi'ite communities across the world, from Pakistan to Japan, UAE to South Africa, and from the UK to Western American states. However, after extracting our data, I realised that out of the complete data set, only some tweeters had enabled their Location-tracking service - this meant that a large number of tweeters could not be mapped. Nonetheless... A blog post about the graphic may be read here, and an R script for generating the graph here. This graphic was inspired by the amazing night time world photograph, taken by NASA, and James Cheshire's work. (wasalam)
  3. Soo title says it all. All over twitter everyone is hash-tagging this joke of a trend. Basically, they try and justify how they are muslim, but they do NOTHING that makes them a muslim, to the contrary (hypocrisy). I dont want to spread this garbage, but I just wanted to post this thread to show that this just shows you how people are truly. You can change but its almost never possible. Your previous beliefs, thoughts, attractions, liking, will always influence your current faith and beliefs. Some are posting how they are a muslim but they dont wear hijab, or they listen to death metal. Some even go as far as saying some pretty disgusting stuff. Some say yes, I am a muslim and I party. Dont get me wrong, probably 85-90% of the tweets are like it, but some do have Islamic inclined tweets which brings some hope again. I just dont get this "im a muslim, but I dont do anything Allah tells me to do" mentality.... Im not hear to judge people on whether they are go or bad people, but im here to call them out on their hypocrisy. If they are actual "Muslims" who are trending this :rolleyes: Check it out for yourself: https://twitter.com/search?q=%23NotYourStockMuslim&src=tren
  4. Something similar was reported last year as well. The program is covert i.e. students are to hide the fact that they're being paid to write positively about the Israeli regime. Students offered grants if they tweet pro-Israeli propaganda In a campaign to improve its image abroad, the Israeli government plans to provide scholarships to hundreds of students at its seven universities in exchange for their making pro-Israel Facebook posts and tweets to foreign audiences. The students making the posts will not reveal online that they are funded by the Israeli government, according to correspondence about the plan revealed in the Haaretz newspaper. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, which will oversee the programme, confirmed its launch and wrote that its aim was to “strengthen Israeli public diplomacy and make it fit the changes in the means of information consumption”. The government’s hand is to be invisible to the foreign audiences. Daniel Seaman, the official who has been planning the effort, wrote in a letter on 5 August to a body authorising government projects that “the idea requires not making the role of the state stand out and therefore it is necessary to adhere to great involvement of the students themselves, without political linkage or affiliation”. According to the plan, students are to be organised into units at each university, with a chief co-ordinator who receives a full scholarship, three desk co-ordinators for language, graphics and research who receive lesser scholarships and students termed “activists” who will receive a “minimal scholarship”. Mr Netanyahu’s aides said the main topics the units would address related to political and security issues, combating calls to boycott Israel and combating efforts to question Israel’s legitimacy. The officials said the students would stress Israeli democratic values, freedom of religion and pluralism. But Alon Liel, the doveish former director-general of the Israeli foreign ministry, criticised the plan as “quite disgusting”. “University students should be educated to think freely. When you buy the mind of a student, he becomes a puppet of the Israeli government grant,” he said. “You can give a grant to do social work or teach but not to do propaganda on controversial issues for the government.” http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/students-offered-grants-if-they-tweet-proisraeli-propaganda-8760142.html
