Thailand king trending high on social media amid protests

War of words between royalists and reformers heating up on all platforms

BANGKOK -- There has been an avalanche of new hashtags as both sides of Thailand's political chasm use social media to rally support, score points and publicize protest dates.

Royalists have been tweeting under mostly saccharine banners: #longlivetheking, #WeLoveTheKingThailand, #bringthesmilesbacktoThailand, #WeLoveOurKing, , #SaveTheKing, #QueenSuthida, and #savethekingdomofThailand.
