The featured performance of tATu at the Winter Olympics opener had people globally talking about human rights on Friday. The opportunity to see the group had viewers impressed with Russia, but when the group held hands on stage it seemed to be an extraordinarily significant moment for social media. According to Mashable on Friday, the hand holding moment between Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova made Twitter trend as the world noticed the moment.
