Meaning: using words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning; containing or exemplifying irony.
Example: It’s both fitting and ironical that there is no better way to describe what’s happening now, other than to say sexual harassment is ‘trending’. The details of the high profile indictments that have happened so far, mostly in the U.S., have helped blow the lid off the silence and complicity that allowed powerful men to be impudent sexual predators.

Synonyms: spread, circulate, distribute, disperse, diffuse, proclaim, promulgate, propagate, publicize, communicate, pass on, make known, put about.
