Last March my friend Lars Schmidt (@ThisisLars) chose a day and dedicated his timeline to “Random Tweets of Kindness.” He spent the day tweeting to people who had helped, supported, and inspired him over the years.
And we’re going to do it again! As Lars wrote at Amplify Talent the other day:
Random Tweets Of Kindness Returns
The original #RTOK was conceived as an experiment. I had no aspirations beyond that day for this day of recognition, but when friends began suggesting we make it an annual event it was a sell. I’m excited to announce Wednesday 3/11/15 will be the next Random Tweets Of Kindness day (#RTOK).
How To Participate
If you’d like to join us this year, here’s how:
- Help spread the word with your networks ahead of 3/11
- You can share this post, or even better write your own, and promote it using the #RTOK hashtag
- On 3/11, send tweets throughout the day to anyone you feel deserves recognition for their work – or just some kindness
- Keep an eye on #RTOK throughout the day on 3/11, RT any tweets you feel compelled to share
I’m in. Are you?
