Great Meme War: How Social Media is Altering Ukraine’s Invasion?

On the 23rd of June we reunited once again at the IT Arena’s tech talks, to discuss the role social media is playing during the war. We featured a freelance journalist and regular Wired UK contributor Chris Stokel-WalkerMarta Vasyuta, a 20-year-old Ukrainian TikToker, Dima Maleev who has one of the most popular podcasts in Ukraine and a new YouTube series on war memes, and Oobah Butler, Catfish UK co-host and filmmaker. It’s not a secret that Russia weaponized fake news to spread disinformation about Ukraine, whilst our country fights back on those with our own methods. Whether it is sharing videos on TikTok, posting content through tweets, or even sharing memes, can social media alter the ways we see Russia’s invasion of Ukraine?
