Do you tweet? I began using Twitter right around the time my good friend Lily Aramburo disappeared, over two years ago. I knew I had to do something. As a Social Media Strategist, I used my know-how to start a blog, created a MySpace for Lily and Facebook Cause, and turned to Twitter to create awareness and to try to get media attention for Lily. I update my network daily, sharing news, Amber Alerts and all types of information related to missing person cases, not just Lily's case. My content comes from all over the web. My twitter handle is @yogini
Social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook and MySpace can be very effective in the search for missing children and adults. But Twitter is not a broadcast-only medium. It is a community. Sharing, retweeting and commenting is very important.
Help support the families of those missing one tweet at a time. One Follow or Retweet may help bring a missing person home!
Here's a list of missing persons and support organizations for families of the missing that tweet:
If you're using Twitter to raise awareness for a missing person or if you Tweet for a nonprofit organization supporting missing persons; please leave a comment with your Twitter handle.
You have the power to get people involved and ultimately generate new leads and public interest for a missing loved one.
