Join us on Monday August 19th 2013 at 4pmest on Twitter for a Tweetstorm and help us trend #Justice4Sammy.

Sammy was a severely abused and neglected cocker spaniel whose “owners” (Keith and Shauna Morgan) put him in a trash bag and left him on the side of the road. They then fabricated the story of “finding” Sammy in the trash bag and “rescuing” him. Authorities did not believe their story and arrested them on charges of animal cruelty. http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2013/03/brick_man_who_claims_he_found.html
Thanks to the tremendous care of Red Bank Veterinary Hospital, Sammy miraculously recovered and now has a wonderful home with his new family. See updates from RBVH here: http://www.rbvh.net/news.php?Update-on-Sammy-Cocker-Spaniel-Abuse-Case-25

What Is A Tweetstorm?
A tweetstorm is a twitter event where many people post on a topic using a designated hashtag which represents a specific topic at the same time in order to make the hashtag trend.
WHAT IS A HASHTAG?
A hashtag is a word that has this character in front of a word: #
WHAT IS THE FUNCTION OF A HASHTAG?
This is basically a way to quickly index a tweet and allows the tweeter to find all the tweets that use this hashtag. Upon clicking on the hashtag either in the list of trending hashtags or in any tweet you see, will make the tweet display column load all the tweets using this hashtag. At the top of the column of tweets there are three choices. Top Tweets, All Tweets and Follower’s tweets.
WHAT DOES TRENDING MEAN?
A trending hashtag appears on the list of trending hashtags that appears on the left side of the screen. When a hashtag trends it means that very many people are tweeting the same hashtag. It does NOT include any retweets!
