CLICKS&TWEETS 4 DOLPHINS - Twitter Media Outreach

CLICKS&TWEETS 4 DOLPHINS
TWITTER PROGRAM FOR TAIJI DOLPHINS DIRECTED TO GLOBAL MEDIA
FOR EXPERIENCED AND NEW TWEETERS

Welcome to the Taiji Dolphin Action Group Twitter program.  This is not a traditional tweet deck, but a real time drive hunt Tweetstorm and the messages are directed exclusively to media, with little exception.  It’s fast-paced and very satisfying for the passionate activist. 

This program is aimed at global media outlets based on Cove Guardian tweets which occur in real time over the course of a hunt The real-time nature of the tweets will bring greater awareness of the inhumanity of the entire drive hunt process, from the cruel and physically damaging drive, to the separation of the pod, holding in the cove, the captives that are taken, the bloodshed of the elders dragged to the butcher house, the babies chased out to sea.  This is our chance to tell the world and to tell it as it happens.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A TWITTER ACCOUNT, set one up and create a little profile.  Using a dolphin photo as your profile image quickly identifies you, along with a brief bio.  Here is a helpful link: https://support.twitter.com/articles/215585-getting-started-with-twitter

A number of TDAG members are already twitter users and would be happy to answer any questions you have along the way.  @bolloyoga, @rattusaustralis

Once you’re set up on Twitter, if you prefer to use a tweet aid until you get the hang of things, the TDAG TWITTER STARTER KIT  is at the end of the media address list section.

OBJECTIVE:  Contact and educate using the TDAG global media list using real time Taiji Cove Guardian tweets during dolphin hunts.  In this way, each user would tweet 10-20 times over the course of a hunt to each outlet, for the purpose of TRENDING.  Trending is created by lots of tweets using the same words/hashtags in a relatively short period of time. 

Why trend?  Media is a world of fast-paced action, always looking for relevant news, and Twitter helps news outlets see real time what people are communicating.  From TDAG founder, Steven Thompson:

"A series of significant conversations with mass media insiders took place yesterday. The topic was how to get dolphin hunt real time information into reporters hands and get it approved by editors. The answer was surprisingly simple: TWEET IT. Twitter is now the gold standard for how editors can prioritize the 100's of stories that cross their in-boxes every day.”

PROCESS: 
1.  FOLLOW COVE GUARDIANS ON TWITTER, THEN TURN ON NOTIFICATIONS.  By clicking/tapping the little wheel to the left of the "following" box, you will see the option menu.  This will deliver sound and text when CG tweets to whatever device you are using, desktop, pad, smartphone.  On your device, go to SETTINGS, SOUNDS, TWEET and choose your sound when a new tweet comes through.

2.  Starting with the first tweet of the hunt "boats out",
--Double click/tap the tweet and copy
--Click/tap the little feather in the right hand corner of the screen,
--Delete "@coveguardians" and paste
--Add #taiji_dag at the end and recopy
--Your new tweet now will look like this: 
        Boats leave harbor to hunt dolphins/whales #tweet4taiji #taiji_dag

--Now add as many media addresses as you can on the front end until you come as close to 140 characters as possible.  The auto-counter will tell you when you've gone over, or still have space. 

--Here is an example of your finished tweet:
      .@cnn .@cnni .@cnnbrk .@brisbanetimes .@CarolineKennedy .@latimes  Boats leave harbor to hunt dolphins/whales #tweet4taiji #taiji_DAG

--Tap or click the tweet button to send.

3,  Click/tap the feather again, paste and add the next 2-5 addresses in the list as space permits, and paste the same message as the first.  Repeat as fast as possible down the list of addresses until the next tweet from Cove Guardian and start all over again with the second tweet. 

NOW STAY WITH US! 
It's very simple, and you can get into a rhythm pretty fast.  The goal is to run thru as many of the media addresses as possible with each tweet.  You are encouraged to run top to bottom, bottom to top, concentrate on a region, mix it up. 

NOTE:  A brief message is ideal.  That allows you to add more addresses on the front end of a tweet, and streamline the process, which aids trending.     Sometimes it is helpful to paraphrase the original tweet from CG.  For instance:

ORIGINAL COVE GUARDIAN TWEET:
Watch the video on our Facebook page for the update on the captured pilot whales and their declining health. https://t.co/58T4Dv501t  #tweet4taiji


PARAPHRASED TWEET:
Watch video Cove Guardian FB Pg Captive pilot whales declining health https://t.co/58T4Dv501t #tweet4taiji #taiji_dag

Paraphrasing allows you to add 2 or more additional address to front of the paraphrased message, so you can work trough the addresses more quickly.  SPACES count towards the maximum 140 characters. 

RULE OF THUMB:  Remove unnecessary words spaces little/no punctuation use CAPS new sentence. 

WHY NOT JUST RETWEET? It sure would be easier, but not effective for this campaign.  When you retweet, you message your followers, but it will lack the media addresses and  IT DOES NOT COUNT TOWARDS TRENDING.  We can trend and trend regularly with a little teamwork.  We can get the word out to the world in a whole new way.
