For sending messages are used hash-tags (labels) with a start symbol #, the most used in number of followers (people who follow that tag and its messages) were: #vemprarua, # ogiganteacordou, # ProtestoBR, #PasseLivre , # ProtestoRJ (the Rio de Janeiro),  #ProtestoSP (São Paulo), # ProtestoCE, #ProtestoBH , # BelémLivre,  #ProtestoDF and, besides many others of course.
