Lebanese Forces suffer digital blow on their annual mass

OK, so the annual martyrs' mass is the biggest agenda-setting celebration for the Lebanese Forces. This year the hashtag was #ما_راحو (please refer here for explanation) - but whereas this was supposed to be the predominant # it seems the LF supporters of the archival FPM (Free Patriotic Movement) managed to force the #ما_راحو_لجعجع which is a play on words on the original # and which means "they did not die for Geagea" - in reference to the martyrs. No matter the details, to be able to achieve such a digital coup on the LF most strategic day is indeed important. Pity, seems the LF crowd did not react swiftly allowing the setback to predominate digitally.
