Twitter is helping out women by launching an ad campaign to raise the awareness of women empowerment.

Recently, Twitter launched its first ever Oscars advert. The ad displayed during the Oscar show with #HereWeAre aimed to reach out maximum people.

In this 90- second slip female celebrities can be spotted Issa Rae, Ava DuVerney, Julie Dash and Jennifer Brea. The ad opens with a line “I heard a woman becomes herself the first time she speaks without permission.

A tweet by Twitter in favour of women empowerment goes on like this “We stand with women around the world to make their voices heard and their presence known. To bring them front and centre, today and every day. Join us as we say #HereWeAre.”

This ad clip got adverse reactions from critics which blame the social media to fall for hypocrisy. Apparently, it also got positive responses from Time’s Up and Me Too movements by spreading gender inequality and sexual harassment topics through social media.
