Sources from top tech researches revealed that this app has been installed more than 700,000 to record the protest #BlackLivesMatter.
The inhumane and brutal act of killing the victim urged people from all over the world to come out on the roads to record their protest what so ever. Social media is the only concrete source now a days to speak your throat out against as well as in favor of any circumstances.
Both numbers have been named single-day highs depending on metrics from both companies.

Twitter has become a valuable tool for anyone who wants to keep updated, even though the platform practices are consistently and clearly deficient. And as Sensor Tower and Apptopia ‘s recorded figures show, hundreds of thousands of people seem to agree.
