Social media influencers are actually speaking politics
Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online.
Travel blogger Ankita Kumar, called @ monkey.inc, says this is happening soon. “Until the end of last year, people were getting better with leaders who follow what they did.”
When the Citizenship Amendment Act debated, he began to explain politics. “It was just like I had a responsibility,” he says.
She was first threatened with death and rape when she protested against the ruling party line. “It took me a while to get used to it, but preventing those who send the threats has helped,” he says.
Blogger Deena Pinto aka @skinnygirldiariez says bloggers of culture, fashion and cosmetics, especially women, tend to be inclined, and seem incapable of having a political mindset.
“When I talk about economics or theory, there are a lot of people who say ‘What do you know? Live’. I have a degree in economics and when I tell them this, they often give up,” he says.
On the other hand, there are times when followers encourage the facilitator to speak. “I remember the flood season in Kerala, I posted a solid video on Instagram and someone asked me how I could post things like this to my home flooding,” said hard blogger Karthika Anand, @kartasian on Instagram.
Karthika wants to stick to her expertise, and sees no reason to share it ‘unwisely’. “It takes time and effort to read. If I am interested in a story, I will read it and say it, ”he said.
Deena adds that good reading is essential, not just checking the accuracy of what you write. “Most of the time it’s not like that, I find myself having to defend and challenge my point of view in order to do this, I need to be told all sides of the story,” he explains.
Ankita believes that being a politician is no longer possible. “It’s all about politics. I can’t say I’m happy in my travel blog. Traveling is political. So being silent on this is not the way to go,” he explains.
Deena agrees, but she understands why people avoid this. “For many of us, our social media is a source of income. Our followers are numbered and this type of marketing plays a big part in it. We like to lose both when we are politicians, ”he said.
He tries to counteract this by creating a policy that is similar to the image he has created for himself. “I’ve noticed that texting makes people angry. That’s why I post articles like the ones that still give real meaning, “he explains.
Deena admits that politics takes a turn for the worse as her full-time job increases. And Ankita does not want politics to take away what she has.
“I will talk about current events but I will choose my wars. At the end of the day, I become a travel blogger and not a storyteller, ”he concludes.
