It doesn't come as a surprise that Twitter is collaborating with the Edinburgh Fringe festival – one of the biggest comedy festivals in the world.

 Twitter is also joining forces with local comedians to award the funniest tweet.

Although more serious conversations have been raised regarding data misuse and privacy violation by social media networks, these same platforms provide a great deal of positive energy.

According to Social Media Today ". . . matching those benefits against the potential negatives has gotten more and more complex, but there is a lot to love about social platforms, there's a lot of positivity and benefit to social media connection.”

A campaign based on humour is a typical example of the positivity on social media.
