#WeStandTogether: Londoners’ rally call trends online in wake of terrorist attack
London’s Metropolitan Police asked the public to use the hashtag when tweeting about the attack, which has left four people dead and 40 injured.
One of the city’s most iconic landmarks, the Royal Albert Hall used the hashtag, tweeting it joined the nation in mourning for the victims of the attack.
Numerous sports teams, including London football clubs Tottenham Hotspur and QPR, used the hashtag to express their condolences to those affected.
The thoughts of everyone at the Club are with all those affected by yesterday's incident in Westminster. #WeStandTogether— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) March 23, 2017
Boxer David Haye said his thoughts were with “the families of those who did not return home yesterday” using the hashtag.

They will never win because #WeStandTogether and the Met does a brilliant job every day not just today— Peter Fahy (@peter1fahy) March 22, 2017
Some Londoners disagreed with the hashtag, claiming the city does not stand together and instead is “full of separate groups that hardly interact.”
This hashtag is b/s.#WeStandTogether— Lee Hurst (@2010LeeHurst) March 23, 2017
We don't. London is full of separate groups that hardly interact.
