Colombia: #Corzotón Protest Against the President of the Congress

Using Storify, journalist Lina Ceballos looks [es] at “why Colombians got excited on Twitter about the #Corzotón“, a protest against Juan Manuel Corzo –president of the Congress whose remarks caused outrage some days ago– since the protest's ‘offline’ version last September 27 was not as successful as expected. Ceballos claims that “[offline] presentiality demands much more involvement” and concludes that “if you want something to be massive it must be entertaining.”
