Twitter campaign #Every15Minutes was trending worldwide with help of supporter retweets

The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) posted tweets every 15 minutes during World Elephant Day yesterday across all its Twitter channels.

The rally around the message was overwhelming. It even reached “trending” status.

 
 

 

 

Our nearly thousand tweets—many of which included a unique portrait of an elephant (seen above)—reverberated throughout the Twitterverse with the help of thousands of concerned supporters. We also benefited greatly from a host of celebrity ambassadors, including Matt Sorum, Slash, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Myles Kennedy, and Heather Morris and honorary board member Jane Goodall who all helped spread the word.

 

Thank you all for caring for elephants and having the passion to make a difference.

Even though World Elephant day has passed you can still help elephants here.
