Toonami Faithful! I'm not sure if anyone else has done this or not, but I'm gonna do it anyway!
I thought I would pass along the official Twitter guidelines for tweeting about Toonami during the Midnight Run every Saturday. I've seen a few cases where people are using the wrong hashtags or their hashtags aren't being spelled out probably, so I thought this would help so that EVERYONE can have their tweets count!
First, any time you're tweeting about Toonami in general, use the hashtag: #Toonami
But remember, only use 1 hashtag in your tweets or else they'll be classified as spam and won't count towards the trends.
On Saturday from morning until night, the hashtag to use is: #WatchToonami
Once Toonami starts, go back to using #Toonami
as the hashtag for any general tweets.
Now, these are the "official" hashtags of all the shows currently airing. Make sure you spell them out as I have them here. Also, make sure you have the word "Toonami" in all your tweets as well, but not if you are using the hashtag for the shows. Use these hashtags when each specific show is on:
For Bleach: #Bleach
For Samurai 7: #Samurai7
For Casshern Sins: #CasshernSins
For Eureka Seven: #Eureka7
For Sym-Bionic Titan: #SymBionicTitan
For ThunderCats: #Thundercats
For Fullmetal Alchemist - Brotherhood: #FMABrotherhood
For Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex: #GhostInTheShell
For Cowboy Bebop: #CowboyBebop
And to help Toonami itself trend, add "on Toonami" after using any of these hashtags. So a sample tweet will look like this:
"Snarf is really cute!! XD #Thundercats
Make sure you don't use any punctuation marks or spaces in your hashtags or they won't accept them properly. Normally, you'd spell it "Sym-Bionic Titan" with a "-" between Sym and Bionic, and a space between Bionic and Titan. Don't add the space or the "-" for the hashtag because if you do this: "#Sym
-Bionic Titan", your hashtag will only be "#Sym
Also, make sure you don't use any foul language in your tweets. Twitter won't count them towards the trends either.
So, make sure that when you're watching Toonami every Saturday to tweet away anything you find interesting, funny, or just plain awesome about whatever show is on! Stay gold! : )
