Twitter Has Gone to the Dogs
By Michele Forto
It seems that almost everyone is using social media these days and some pet owners are even having their pets “speak” to the masses through blogs, dog books, websites and books. Heck, one dog owner here in Denver, CO has her dog running for Mayor!
One popular comedian’s dog has more followers that she does. See: Chunk’ Twitter Page
Pet owners on one social media website, Twitter, has created a following using the title /search term WoofWednesday. If you are on Twitter I am sure you have heard my now about FollowFriday. FollowFriday is what users use to invite others to check out their “friends” profile. they do this by placing a hashtag (the # symbol) at the end of their post.
The same goes for the WoofWednesday posts on, of course, Wednesdays. What is special about WoofWednesday? Unity and a place to find like minded pet owners that are talking about their furry friends.
An example of a tweet on WoofWednesday would look like this:

The hashtag in twitter is used for what is called a “tending topic” as well as a way to search topics on a particular topic (ie. pets or dogs using #woofwednesday)
If you are on Twitter I encourage you to join the conversation, not only on #WoofWednesday, but every day.
