#IheartFoggy - Foggy wants to trend!!

So here is the plan.
The trending idea is to raise awareness of both Foggy AND ME/CFS. Foggy wants to get as many people as possible talking about these two things in a short period of time.
Foggy would like you to tweet about him and ME/CFS between 0730 and 0830 GMT on Tuesday 25th August.
That time has been chosen because it is an off peak time for Twitter in the UK (more chance of trending) but also late enough in the morning for most people to be awake! It is a global social media mission though so, if you are awake/able to, please take part and help make Foggy's trending plan be a success! Both UK and worldwide trends will be monitored to see if the mission is a success!
There are lots of foible's related to Twitter usage. If Twitter thinks it is a robotic, automated campaign they will block it. With that in mind, mass scheduling on sites such as Hootsuite may not be appropriate. As trending will be a mixture of numbers of people AND number of tweets, one person sending hundred's of tweets will
not be of any benefit. Lots of identical tweets are also a no-no, guidance is given below as to what to write. Variety will be key.
Could you please send any/all of the following tweets. Below are the actions/questions - you simply have to answer the questions and tweet a selfie photo. No essays required, just 140 characters including the #IheartFoggy hashtag. If you have enough characters left please also include #mecfs so it is flagged up to other sufferers who aren't aware of Foggy's existence (*Foggy* sob hic).
1. I Heart Foggy selfie photo of yourself - see the attached YouTube clip from the World Tour campaign.

2. My relationship to M.E. is...(sufferer, parent, carer, friend, campaign supporter, non sufferer etc)
3. What I love most about Foggy is....
4. My worst 3 M.E. symptoms are....
5. (M.E-wise) In the future I hope that......
Obviously retweeting and commenting on #IheartFoggy tweets will be fantastic and will help Foggy's mission to succeed!!

Please don't use the hashtag before the 'special' hour....trending only works with hashtags that have not been commonly used previously.

Important small print

The hashtag #IheartFoggy is the intellectual property of the ME Foggy Dog campaign/Sally Callow. It cannot be used for any purpose other than promoting Foggy.

This should be a fun experiment; positivity helps to spread awareness!


Sally (and Foggy)
