Seven years and 13,000 tweets on from joining Twitter, the Welsh Blood Service are celebrating reaching 10,000 followers. The service opened its @givebloodwales account with a message that still stands today, ‘Give Blood, Save Lives. We can’t do it without you!’
Twitter was the first social media platform launched by our service as a way to make it easier for donors to interact with us, learning about the importance of donating and sharing stories about how the blood has been used to save lives in Wales. We have continued to increase our social media presence by adding Facebook and Instagram.
To celebrate reaching 10,000 followers, here’s some of our favourite tweets:
If every single one of our Twitter followers signed up to give blood, we would save up to 30,000 lives! To book an appointment visit bit.ly/wbs01.
