Boko Haram: Not Into Social Media?

Remember this from April 2014?


Boko Haram: Kidnapped Girls Have Been Married Off, Truce Never Happened

But the sign!!! She's holding a sign Boko Haram. Didn't you see the first "lady"'s sign? It says #BringBackOurGirls. She called it. You have to give them back - like right away too! Don't you know how the internet works? She is the great and powerful Obama-Wife. You can't defy her like that! The sign Boko Haram!!! LOOK AT THE SIGN!!!

Or perhaps ... that's not how the world works? Is that even possible? Could it be that celebrity hashtag campaigns don't magically cure the world's ills? Is it possible that only vapid, shallow, pathetic excuses-for-human-beings would be so egomaniacal as to believe that holding up hashtag signs with their printed wishes will have the slightest influence on anyone who is not as vapid, shallow and pathetic as they are?
