Source: Berlatsky, N. (2015). Hashtag Activism Isn't a Cop-Out. The Atlantic. Retrieved

Rhetorical Context (Who wrote it or created? Why was it written? What is it
trying to do to or for its readers? What is it? Where does it appear? When was
it published? )

This source was written by Berlatsky for the Atlantic. It is an interview in which the
author seeks clarification from Mckesson, a famous protestor, on a few issues about the
usefulness of social media in today’s protests. It was published in 2015, and can be found
on the Atlantic’s website.


Summary (What does the text say? What are its main points/claims? Subclaims? What kind of support does the author use to back these claims up?
What did you find most interesting?)/

The main argument in the interview is that social media is indeed a useful tool when it
comes to protests. It can help us become aware of the social issues that affect us and to
understand what we can do to change the situation for the better. The author and the
interviewee use various examples to back up their claims, especially the Ferguson
protests, which were primarily started by hashtags on social media. The most interesting
aspect of this story is that we are getting the evidence from a protestor, which means that
he has sufficient experience from which he draws his viewpoints and arguments.

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
