#ProjV: How it works
This is how #ProjV works:
- We are asking for your 1-Tweet Twitter Stories. You must adhere to the 140-character Twitter limit.Tweet @BrokenOfBritain
- Tweets must be relevant to Disability, Mental illness, Invisible Illness or Carers.
- One Tweet per person please, to start: if you have already participated in #TalkingTuesday and/or #ThinkingThursday, then your existing tweet already posted to our Facebook Page, will be used.
- The Twitter hashtags to use are: #ProjV and #TBofB
- We have a TBofB Twitter Stories Blog where all tweets will be posted
- Tweets will be accepted every day from 7February until 11pm, 13th February.
- On Valentine’s Day – the only tweets from @BrokenOfBritain will be the 1-Tweet Twitter Stories.
- I am also donating the feed of my personal account, @IconicImagery, to this project.
We are also asking for Supporters to donate their Twitter feed for Valentine’s Day and only tweet these stories.
Post-Launch Update 8 February: Facebook & E-mail
Our good friend Rosemary of sister organisation Carer Watch reminded us today that there are not many family carers who use Twitter, but do use Facebook. We do not want anyone to be left out.
- For those who do not use Twitter, your 1-Tweet (140 character) stories can also be posted via the “Twitter Stories” discussion board thread on our Facebook Page.
- We also have a Facebook Project V Event Notice which can be shared with your network.
- For those that prefer e-mail, I can contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org (my personal projects account rather than the main TBofB email, which gets inundated).
As Benjamin Franklin said, “Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are”. Help non-Spoonies get insight into disability, mental health, invisible illness or chronic illness and the stigma that comes with these conditions.
