Call to Action! 50 Tweets for Migraine Awareness Month

This tweet list was created for YOU to copy and use on Twitter, Facebook or other status updates during the month of June. Schedule your post-dated tweets to go live each day of the month by using the tool of your choice (I am used to Hootsuite, but there are several others available after a quick google search for “Schedule Tweets”).

For maximum awareness, please mix them up.

Use some or use all, but don’t forget to include hash tags (#) #Migraine #NMAM (this hashtag is for National Migraine Awareness Month) and #NMAMTC (National Migraine Awareness Month Tweet Challenge) so we can find and retweet your efforts!

This list is a CHALLENGE to all those who use Twitter or who want to start to use Twitter. Here’s your call to action — your chance to make a difference in Migraine and headache disorder awareness.

Feeling funny about using Twitter? Throw them up on your Facebook page, or group pages or other communities then.

June is National Migraine Awareness Month!

How many times have you run into someone who doesn’t understand Migraine? What do you tell them? What do you do to create awareness of Migraine Disease? How much do you really know about Migraine yourself?

We have Migraine, and that puts us all on the same team. There’s work to be done in the next 30 days, so COME ON — Let’s Roll!!!
