#NHTD TWITTER CHAT AND THUNDERCLAP: ARE YOU #DOINGIT?
June 21, 2016 • By CDC NPIN
In support of National HIV Testing Day (NHTD), CDC’sNational Prevention Information Network (NPIN) will host a Twitter chat and Thunderclap, which are available to all partners.
The Twitter chat will be held on June 23 from 3 to 4 p.m. EDT, and it is moderated by @CDCNPIN and Dr. Jonathan Mermin (@DrMerminCDC) , director of CDC’s National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP).
Featuring federal and community partners, the #NHTDChat aims to:
- Raise awareness about NHTD events across the country,
- Promote CDC’s national Doing It campaign, and
- Share best practices for motivating all adults to get tested.
Participation in the Twitter chat is easy: Follow along with the questions when the moderators start posting at 3 p.m., and then chime in to share your thoughts on HIV testing, NHTD, and local events.
Leading up to the Twitter chat, partners are encouraged to join NPIN in a five-day social media countdown to raise awareness and build momentum for the #NHTDChat. All anyone has to do is follow @CDCNPIN and retweet the countdown messages.
Everyone can also raise awareness and support testing by joining NPIN’s #NHTDThunderclap —an easy way to share and amplify the #DoingIt message across social media. The NHTD Thunderclap will occur on June 27 at 1 p.m. EDT. Sign up now!
