Today (Thursday, June 25, 2009) Twitters around the world started a grassroots campaign to push the issue of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit's captivity to the top of the Internet world using the social networking mini-blog site.
Twitters will use the hashtag #Gilad to remind the world that Shalit's condition and whereabouts remain unknown after three years in the hands of the Hamas terrorists who kidnapped him. A hashtag is a label that Tweeters add to their messages to categorize them and make them more accessible and popular.
If you have a Twiiter account (free), please send out a Tweet today about #Gilad Shalit.
If you want examples of how easy it is to do, you can look at my own tweets today at:
