This is being organised by Moving Mountains Nature Network (@MMNN-ActionUK on Twitter), as a way to raise awareness about HS2 and the disastrous effects it will have on the environment if it goes ahead.
They say on their website
Take part in 2 tweet storms scheduled for 19:00-20:00 hrs on 24th April 2014 and 27th April 2014:
Nature is always accused of having no voice, when it comes to petitions. Let’s all work as a TEAM to raise awareness and help STOP HS2!
– the storm will use hashtag #StopHS2 and is aimed at raising awareness, prior to the crucial voting by MPs.
– create your own tweets and remember to include #StopHS2.
– your tweets should focus on raising awareness of the need to ask MPs to vote against HS2 using the above link and also asking followers to attend the demonstration outside parliament on 28th April 2014
– you can also send out tweets using links to your favourite articles and information on the following websites:
– create your tweets in advance, so that you can send them out quicker during the tweet storm and help #StopHS2 trend on Twitter. Again during the storm you can copy existing tweets that you see under hashtag #StopHS2.
– tell your followers about the tweet storm now so that others can plan and join in. You can take a HS2 selfie and add the image to your tweet as well!
They have a huge number of suggested links and tweets on their website.
In particular, it would be great if you could tweet links to the HS2 demo
