Indonesian Twitterers at the forefront of the #IndonesiaUnite movement are getting their 90 minutes of fame from Metro TV. The movement has managed to keep #Indonesiaunite as a top trending topic in Twitter worldwide since the bombing last Friday. Trending topics tell Twitterers th world over which are the hot topics being Tweeted about at the moment.
It is an act of defiance and an act of solidarity to tell the world that Indonesians refused to be frightened by the bombings. The key players are also talking about leveraging the momentum of the movement into something more lasting.
This from the blog of Aulia, one of the key members of the #indonesiaunite movement.
Special Dialog on MetroTV.
I’ve been asked to gather a list of people from Twitter who would like to be in the audience at their studio. The show will feature discussions about the bombing at Kuningan last Friday morning and the IndonesiaUnite movement that began on Twitter which has practically taken over Twitter for the past five days, as a response to the incident.
It will also have performances by Slank, Efek Rumah Kaca, Pandji Pragiwaksono, Oppie Andaresta, and Jose Rizal Manua.
IndonesiaUnite is a movement that aims to show the world that Indonesians are not afraid of terrorists and instead of hiding, will drive to protect, preserve, and advance our way of life. It is also being used to tell the world that there is more to Indonesia than they may know.
It is not only a movement on the internet, it is being pushed offline also to show the rest of the country that there are people who care about driving the nation forward, that there are ways to make this country a better place, and that a nation is nothing without its people.
