We invite your organization to tweet using some of the following hashtags and include @WIISCanada so we can favourite and retweet:
In addition to live-tweeting, your organization can host a Twitter teach-in. A teach-in involves a continuous stream of tweets from one account which contain pieces of information on gender based violence. Focus can be given to this year’s theme of education. Allow members of your organization to retweet the original tweets and also allow people to ask questions related to your tweets.
