How Twitter can help
January 24, 2016
Twitter is a social media site where the good, the bad, and the ugly come out, and where people can say virtually whatever they want to. Although tweets aren’t always the nicest, there are definitely some great people who use the service to send positive messages on it.
Bullying has been brought up on Twitter on a large scale, with anti-bully movements providing support and encouragement for people who are dealing with this issue. Popular anti-bully hashtags like: #stopbullying, #antibullying, #makeanoise, #bullying, and #antibullyingweek contribute to the waves of people posting their experiences, advice, and motivation for the fight against bullying.
You can search these hashtags by making a Twitter account, and then going to the search bar at the top right corner of the page. Just type in one of the hashtags, and you’ll find a list of tweets that use it.
Tweetdeck is another great way to search by hashtag.
Here are some celebrity tweets that came up:
Tweets like these show victims that there are people out there who’ve been there and who care. If you’re dealing with bullying, the Twitter community can show you that you’re not alone.
