Hashtag #DELETEUBER took off this weekend.
Twitter might have issues knowing what, exactly, its service is for.
But its users know Twitter can be a tool for drawing attention to certain topics.
Over the weekend, the hashtag, #DELETEUBER, trended.
Why was that?
It is related to President Trump's executive order banning immigration to the US from seven predominantly Muslim countries.
There were protest at New York John F Kennedy Airport against the executive order.
The New York taxi workers alliance backed the union of New York city drivers wrote NO PICKUPS @ JFK Airport 6 PM to 7 PM today.
Drivers stand in solidarity with thousands protesting inhumane and unconstitutional #MuslimBan With no taxi service at JFK, Uber dropped surge pricing around the airport.
Twitter users responded saying Uber was a strike breaker.
The backlash against Uber led people to post on Twitter they were deleting the app with the #DeleteUber Uber issued a statement saying we are sorry for any confusion about our earlier tweet.
It was not meant to break up any strike.
Uber CEO, Travis Kalanick, is on President strategic and policy forum.
Kalanick issued a statement saying the immigrant ban was unjust and pledged to create a $3 million legal defense fund.
