Description

On March 3rd 2016, Bernie Sanders tweeted that it's unacceptable for people in Bucharest to have faster internet than most of the US. This sparked a lot of national and international controversy. We saw it as an opportunity to promote Bucharest, especially now, that it's a candidate to the European Capital of Culture. So we responded to Bernie's tweet in under 10 hours with berniespeedtest.com. A website that allowed anyone in the world to check their internet speed and see how much slower/faster it really is to Bucharest's average. Depending on their speed, people got one of over 30 meme-like reactions from Bernie. The website also linked to the Bucharest2021 portal, where people can see that Bucharest has so much more to offer than just fast internet. music: shook - milestones disclaimer: this is case study, used in a non-commercial purpose.
