This article contained few reliable sources; it had links to YouTube videos (always a stopper); and it completely lacked categories. I'd suggest you try again, but this time create a draft which can be critiqued by more experienced editors, instead of being tossed into the deep end to sink or swim. --Orange Mike | Talk 01:03, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Description
Trying to add section on Twitter Revolution in Tunisia

==Case study: Twitter Revolution in Tunisia==
The Tunisian protest began in December 2010 due to a lack of political freedoms and poor living conditions. “The protest was sparked by the suicide of [[Mohamed Bouazizi]], an unemployed university graduate whose informal vegetable stall was shuttered by the police.” <ref>
{{cite web| title = The First Twitter Revolution | url = http://foreignpolicy.com/2011/01/15/the-first-twitter-revolution-2/ | first1 =Ethan | last1 =Zuckerman | work = Foreign Policy | publisher = The Foreign Policy Group | date = Jan 15, 2011 | accessdate =May 20, 2015}}
</ref> Due to these conditions many of the Tunisian people took to social media sites, such as [[Twitter]], to spread their messages about the revolution. 


One of the messages spread through Twitter included a popular hashtag #sidibouzid, which was important in “effectively indexing the [[Tunisian Revolution]] through a hashtag.” <ref>
{{cite web| title = The Revolutions Were Tweeted: Information Flows during the 2011 Tunisian and Egyptian Revolutions  | url = http://www.danah.org/papers/2011/IJOC.html#_ftn1 | first = Mike| last1 = Ananny | first = Danah| last1 = Boyd| | first = Devin | last1 =Gaffney | first = Erhardt | last1 = Graeff | | first = Gilad | last1 = Lotan | | first =Ian | last1 =Pearce | Policy | publisher = The International Journal of Communications 5, Feature 1375-1405 | date = 2011 | accessdate =May 20, 2015}}
</ref> In a survey conducted about social media use in the Tunisian revolution, “many of the respondents named Twitter, Facebook, Skype, and cell phones as social media platforms they were using.  Prior to the revolution most of the respondents stated that they were using social media to exchange information, stay in contact with family, and receive uncensored news.  During the revolution, the respondents expressed an increased use of social media.” <ref>
{{cite web| title = "Tweeting Out a Tyrant:" Social Media and the Tunisian Revolution | url = http://wi.mobilities.ca/tweeting-out-a-tyrant-social-media-and-the-tunisian-revolution/ | first1 = Mariam| last1 = Esseghaier | work = Sound Moves | publisher = Journal of Mobile Media | date = Mar, 2013 | accessdate =May 20, 2015}}
</ref> 


Furthermore the Tunisian people spread videos and photos of violence taking place in the country at the time. This allowed for people outside of Tunisia to understand what was taking place in Tunisia during the revolution. This lead to increased coverage of the events from outside the country, which helped spread awareness and ultimately help the people of Tunisia see their former President [[Zine El Abidine Ben Ali]].

Zelo (filter log)
Description
I was attempting to add references to the page for Korean hip-hop artist Zelo which included a link to a YouTube video as that is where one of the songs I was trying to include is hosted. The filter would not allow me to do this and marked it as spam or unconstructive. However the YouTube link was the reference, it is the best reference available as the track was independently produced and that's the official place it is hosted.
