UPDATE! Tweetstorm and @ShortyAwards 2015!   Leave a comment

Thank You Trend

THANK YOU for making Tony’s Tweetstorm a ROARING Success!

We “officially” held our Tweetstorm from 1pmEST – 2pmEST on Monday April 20th because of an engagement we were attending that evening in New York City ~ The Shorty Awards.

Yesterday we posted that the hashtag we used, #Shorty4Tony, didn’t trend.

UPDATE! Thanks to friends who kept tweeting and watching the top trends, #Shorty4Tony trended in the U.S. and U.K.!

The Shorty Awards recognize the best in social media and for the second year in a row, Tony ( @TonyTiger2000 ) was a finalist in the Non-Human Category.

If you follow Tony on Twitter you’ll be familiar with his tweets to raise awareness for captive tigers and big cats, his support of numerous animal issues, and his endearing friendships with @LucyLiberte, @IamSmittyKitty and countless other friends.

Tony’s Shorty Awards Campaign focused on the plight of captive tigers in the United States, and although he didn’t win, he raised tremendous awareness for tigers…and of course Tony is always a winner in our hearts.

Our advocacy on behalf of Tony continues in a positive and focused direction as does our support of The Animal Legal Defense Fund’s procurement of Tony’s release to a reputable big cat sanctuary. Social media is an important part of keeping Tony, updates on his case and the issue of captive tigers networked and retaining people’s support and interest.

So as @TonyTiger2000 as tweeted:

So if you tweet, join us on Twitter ~ Monday April 20th, 2015 ~ and GET LOUD for TONY! We’d like to demonstrate the awesome support and love he has worldwide and that he deserves a Shorty Award as recognition for his strong social media presence on this important issue.
