    Lightbulb ZDAY 2015 - Twitter Awareness

    Hello,

    I'm new to the movement and still learning about TZM. I've been reaching out to some of my friends to spread awareness, but have yet to create a local group/chapter. I believe my chapter in Northern CA is not active anymore.

    As all of you know, social media is a huge tool to spread awareness. I was thinking we could all infiltrate Twitter on ZDay with a hashtag to spread global awareness (#zday, #tzm). Many people cannot afford the travel expenses to get to Germany... or other countries where Zday has been located. Has this been attempted in the past? I don't know if this is a silly idea or not, but I am eager to keep spreading the awareness. If I'm just learning about TZM, I have hope others will catch on - given that the movement has been around for years now. The global "trends" on Twitter have sparked awareness for so many things.. why not TZM?

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    Haley

    Hi Haley
    Thats a fine idea. I also like many am without the funds to travel to Germany this Zday. There are many other things you can do, too. Lead by example, in your human interactions, aiming to inspire those around you to be genuine, compassionate and scientific. This in whatever way best suits your temperment. I think that is a meaningful way to do justice by your conviction. The word 'zeitgeist' is German for 'spirit of the times' and 'movement' implies motion; by being a force of nonviolence and passion in ones community one is interacting functionally and inspirationally with the spirit of the time, and in many ways this is the most important thing we can contribute to its movement.

    Be lucky

    whats your twitter handle? I'm @8lak3y. Anna Maria is @annabrodskaya1. Ive live tweeted a bunch of tzm events, doing searches to find anyone else tweeting about it. No one ever uses hashtags, no one ever picks up the ones i use. Its totally lame. Anna Maria who responded to your post below, is my partner, and as i was reading her response i hadnt realised it was her post. I was thinking, wow, this trash is so typical of condescending love and light blatherers who just want to vent thier jumped up over optimistic breeze at people who already know what zeitgeist means and yata yata. I was thinking i cant say that because whoever posted it will totally take offense.
    Anna Is very enthusiastic and eager. She is very loving and that deep need to share and be social can lead someone to talk too much, or when its inappropriate. Anna will be the first to admit that she is prone to that. One day she'll learn to stay on topic..
    She completely fails to address the topic of your post and just blathers. I thought, huh, Be Lucky.. i say that, i wonder if this person has had some interaction with me before, its kind of an essex thing to say, not many people posting here from essex. Anyway, to get back to your original point..
    Lets use the Obvious hashtag #ZDAY2015 tweet it before zday to as many zeitgeist advocates as you can on twitter so they can hopefully decide to use it and share it. I will do the same.
    I have a venus project zeitgeist movement list with 100 or so accounts who are pro tzm. Add me up

    I am sorry. I know how frustrating it can be to feel like one doesn't have the resources to express oneself so sought to offer some reassurance but looking back at my previous it is very blather-y. :S

    I think Haley has a great idea! I've been meaning to get TZM people together to do coordinated actions online. I just followed you guys and girls (I think I have already been following you Haley?) so let's keep in touch. Let's try to get more people doing this. The 4 of us won't have a huge impact

    Mine is @haleyywalters (It's my full name, with an extra "y" at the end of my first name). Yes, we should use #ZDAY2015 primarily and also #TZM ...I've noticed people using #TZM when I look it up. I will do my best to spread awareness so that other people will tweet with the hashtag.

    Yes, I am following you! Should we have a designated time to start tweeting? I will try to spread awareness so that people will use the hashtag

    well I basically already started tweeting but I'm using #ZDay vs #ZDay2015 just alone to save room because of the whole 140 character thing... I usually have problems keeping my tweets within that limit I guess we should decide on one #
    the day of, i'll probably start tweeting about a couple of hours before it starts, getting a link out there to the stream.
