Social media is putting power back in the hands of activists and today’s youth, turning Twitter trends such as #BlackLivesMatter into global movements, a ten-part docu-series from The Huffington Post explores today.

The #BlackLivesMatter episode is part of #PowerShift, hosted by Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner, which examines the revolutionary ways in which today’s youth are embracing social media to change the world for the better.

The episode features activist LeCreshia Birts who says: “Social media does put power back in the hands of activists or people like me because it allows us to tell our story.”

Opal Tometi, co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, explains the importance of social media in letting people know about demonstrations that are taking place.

Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, Arianna Huffington, said: “Even though we’ve seen example after example around the world of social media deepening connections, improving lives and making the world better, we are still only beginning to understand its potential.

“So I’m delighted that, as part of our What’s Working initiative to reimagine journalism with an emphasis on solutions, #PowerShift is putting a spotlight on real people using social media to change the world, in a way that’s both inspiring and entertaining.”

Turner said: “Social media has amplified the voice for my generation around the world and changed the way that we communicate.

“I am a huge advocate of social media and thrilled to be given the opportunity to delve deep into its influence and impact on society at large.”

#PowerShift will live on all 15 global editions of The Huffington Post and will be syndicated through the AOL On network.

The series was made in partnership with GroupM Entertainment (GME) and produced with Broad Bean Media.

Oh my. Words cannot even begin to express how amazing tonight’s episode was, I’ve rewatched it three times since and each time it gets better I swear. Sansa has been my favorite character since the beginning, obviously, but tonight many fans finally came over to Team Sansa and to you I saw WELCOME!

I’ve got over 450 HD Screencaptures of Sophie from the episode now in the gallery and tonight’s season finale is going to be another unforgettable one.

Hi! “other” mod Hannah here.

I may be in the unfortunate position of living on the other side of the world so I’ll probably never meet Sophie, but in some cases I’m lucky – Australia gets to see X-Men Apocalypse a week before the US! (Give me a moment to gloat… okay done).

I’m undeniably not close to the X-Men universe – I have seen all the films but I’ve always been a casual fan, and I’ve never seen an X-Men movie and come out of it thinking it was anything special. Apocalypse definitely changed that opinion. I can’t possibly preface this with “unbiased opinion” because… I literally co-run this Sophie site and, admittedly, I wouldn’t have been nearly as excited about it if she wasn’t in it. However, I can tell you that overall it is a genuinely good film, packed with emotional moments from several new and pre-loved characters, that stands up well against the oversaturation of superhero films around nowadays (and upon reflection, I think it is superior to Batman VS Superman).

Sophie Turner’s performance as Jean is amazing. Like she’s said before, her take is quite different from Famke Janssen’s – Famke’s older Jean is a lot more self assured and confident with her abilities, while Sophie’s Jean is a young girl struggling to control the growing powers within her. Sophie imbues the character with the kind of fragility and strength we know her to portray so well through Sansa Stark – and yet, she’s almost unrecognisable. She definitely shows her range in this film, nailing an American accent and showing this innate mental power that makes Jean such a unique mutant. You see why people might be afraid of her and the potential she possesses, while also feeling for how out of place in the world she feels because of it. She emits a calmness and kindness towards several key characters in the film, acting as a kind of intrinsic tether in the madness, but there’s a darker edge too. There have been rumours that X-Men might revisit the Dark Phoenix arc, and there’s no doubt in my mind Sophie would do incredible things with that material.

Overall, I appreciated the subtleties in Sophie’s portrayal but was blown away by the big moments she got, which she’s often not afforded on Game of Thrones. Jean was really given a lot of moments to shine in this film (I would even say that her arc was the strongest and most promising) and I do think audiences will warm to her immediately. I can imagine Sophie was pretty chuffed with some of her scene partners, and she held her own among some very experienced and prolific actors (one in particular is a nice surprise).

For the first time in my life I’m genuinely enthusiastic about X-Men and its future – all of the young actors shone (Tye Sheridan especially) and it will be wonderful to see how the universe progresses with these new faces. Loved it!
