How To Go To A Twitter Party

Come one come all to the BornFree Twitter Party! To celebrate the FDA officially expressing concern over BPA, we are throwing a party to educate, inform, and inspire parents to be BPA-Free & Proud! It’s this Wednesday, January 20th. All day!

We’ll be giving away prizes, holding contests, answering your most pressing BPA questions and more.

What is a Twitter Party? A gathering of individuals on Twitter who follow a single conversation or subject using what are called hashtags.

What is a hashtag? A hashtag is the “#” sign. Perhaps because it looks like a hashbrown? No one can be sure. The hashtag for the BornFree Twitter Party is #BPAFreeWeek. Whenever you tweet to BornFree tomorrow to answer a contest question, ask a question, or make a comment, put #BPAFreeWeek at the beginning or end of your tweet.

Why do we use hashtags? If you login to Twitter and press the “Home” button, you will notice a search box in the right sidebar. If you enter #BPAFreeWeek in the box and press enter you will see all of the people participating in the BornFree Twitter party tomorrow and will be able to converse with them!

How do I enter contests? Login to Twitter and make sure you are following BornFree at http://www.twitter.com/newbornfree. Then watch both the BornFree Twitter tweets and when we post a contest, tweet back to us by putting @newbornfree in your tweet.

Example Tweet: “@newbornfree The answer to your question is yes, I do think you are the best company in the world!”

Putting the “@” sign in front of a Twitter user’s name sends the tweet to them.

What is a Retweet? Also abbreviated like this: RT, a Retweet is a copy of a tweet.

Tweet: @newbornfree The answer to your question is yes, I do think you are the best company in the world!

tweet.

Retweet: RT @newbornfree The answer to your question is yes, I do think you are the best company in the world!

Twitter lets you automatically Retweet posts. Be careful though, you only have 140 characters to use! Make it short and sweet.

Play with Twitter tonight so that you feel comfortable using it at the party tomorrow. Tweet you tomorrow!

BornFree Holding Briefing On BPA This Morning!

From Anne at BornFree UK:

The BPA debate is hotting up! Yesterday I blogged about the  campaign that was launched by  Breast Cancer UK calling on the Government to take action to end the use of the controversial chemical BPA in baby bottles. This call is backed by NCT, UNISON, The Women’s Environmental Network, The Cancer Prevention and Education Society and CHEM Trust.

BornFree has always opposed the use of BPA and other harmful chemicals in baby feeding products and has never ever used them, ever.

Today BornFree is hosting a breakfast media briefing at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.

The conference will cover:

  • The effect of endocrine disruptors which have been used in plastics for many years on babies and small children
  • Current Environment Protection Agency orders for testing on endocrine disruptors, and the effect of these chemicals on human development
  • Consumer reports on testing for BPA levels in canned food
  • Recent research results linking BPA levels to erectile dysfunction and decreased fertility in men

Speaking at the conference will be U.S. scientist Dr. Alan Greene and Ron Vigdor, President of BornFree USA .

We are so excited by the increased media and public awareness that is happening in the UK at the moment and we support all campaigns to ban the use of these harmful chemicals in products intended for use by children.
