Tweet this!

Pre-written, factual tweets to share with the national media. If you’d like to add one for others to share, please use the “comments” box and we’ll update the page. 

So how does this Twitter Bomb thing work? On Monday, December 5, at any time between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 p.m.:

1) Select the #JaguarsFacts tweet (from below) you’d like to share.

2) Choose the national sports media member(s) you’d like to send the tweet to (see list of Twitter handles on next page).

3) Copy and paste the Twitter handle, then the tweet, into your Twitter client. Be sure the tag #JaguarsFacts, isn’t cut off from the tweet.

4) Share as many or as few of the facts as you’d like, with as many media as you’d like. Be respectful though, please. Don’t spam by tweeting hundreds of times to the same account (we don’t want your account to be shut down for spam). Don’t name-call, trash talk or engage in otherwise inappropriate behavior. Let’s keep it classy.

5) Encourage your followers to participate too. The more noise we can make, the better. Let’s show the rest of the country how much we love this team!

6) Attend the Monday night game and cheer our boys on to a big win for the Weaver’s final Monday night game.
