Big Bi Tweet? Make that the Biggest Bi Tweet Yet!
This year’s Big Bi Tweet for Bi Visibility Day, September 23rd, has got huge momentum. A week from launch – and six weeks from the big day – it has already attracted more than 200 participants and has a “social reach” of 1.8 million people – making it already bigger than last year’s campaign.
As we reported last week, by signing up a one-time message gets sent on September 23rd from your twitter account at the same time as from the accounts of all the other people who are taking part.
As well as tweeting you can share the message via Facebook and Tumblr. The aim is for hundreds of people to share a short message on the morning of Bi Visibility Day to help the #BiPride and #BiVisibilityDay hashtags start to trend on the day.
Jen Yockney MBE, who has run the international site BiVisibilityDay.com since 2001, commented, “It’s an easy way for people to take part and do something to mark September 23 as Bi Visibility Day – whether they are in an area with lots of bi organising and events or somewhere more isolated, or perhaps work or personal life commitments prevent them getting involved in activities locally. And if you’re sometimes forgetful or distracted, which a lot of us are, you know that even if you forget on the big day you’ll still have tweeted about it.
“If you’re out at work or college, you might ask your university, employer or trades union to join in with the tweet too.”
