“Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed got into controversy after Texas police had arrested him for bringing a self-made clock in school. School authorities suspected it to be a bomb.

In addition to tweets, there have been a number of hashtags which became incredibly popular. At times, those indicated the support for a cause, while those just meant to be “fun” in some other times.
This hashtag became hugely popular after the terrorist attack in Paris on January 7, 2015. The phrase was a creation by French art director Joachim Roncin. It became a sensation as people used it to show their support for freedom of speech. On the day of the massacre, this hashtag was used more than 6,000 times per minute.
