Break the Cycle’s Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month Chat with

Mon Feb 5 2018, All Day

Break the Cycle is excited to invite you to our second annual Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month chat with! We will talking about our 2018 theme – Healthy Me, Healthy We: a journey of self-love, strength, and positivity.

    1. Example of an answer to Question 1: A1 Being a healthy me means that I take care of my body and mind with yoga, quality time with friends, and date night with my partner #sayftychat @sayftycom @breakthecycldv
  2. You can reply directly to the question by pressing the arrow button under the tweet. This is a good method for quick answers or to share pictures or videos.
  3. You can Quote Tweet by pressing the Retweet button and adding your response before to the original tweet. If you do this, it is unnecessary to tag whoever posted the original tweet.
  4. Write a new tweet in the format seen in bullet 1. Be sure to tag the host’s handles and include the hashtag #sayftychat or they may not see it.

** Remember, tweets can now be 280 characters long, but it is still better to keep responses on the shorter side **
