Best Practices

  • Personalize your tweets by adding details about yourself to the sample; your social media is most powerful when it reflects your own, unique voice.
  • Always include #GVSurvivorsWeek in your tweets to add it to the online conversation.
  • Tag @Everytown in all of your tweets and @MomsDemand when possible.
  • Mention your CITY & STATE — this helps to show the geographic diversity of the movement!
