If former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had any thoughts that the September 11, 2012 terrorist slaying of American diplomats stationed in Benghazi, Libya would fade away, a new Twitter campaign is showing her that it still makes a difference a year later.

The fastest trending issue on the advocacy site Twibbon is "Remember the Benghazi 4," a reference to those killed that day including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

"Remember the Benghazi 4" urges users to add a "Twibbon" to their Twitter profile picture and Facebook account showing their support for those killed by terrorists.

"We must never forget the deaths of four brave Americans - Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods - who died defending American Interest in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Please help pay tribute to their sacrifice by adding this ribbon to your Twitter and Facebook profile pictures, and sharing it with your friends," says the site.
