Twitter is very popular as a ‘social media’ platform. It can be tremendously informative, when it comes to current news and developments, especially involving key policies and concerns. In 2018 over twenty Kittiwakes were injured or killed as a direct result of anti-bird deterrents, down on Newcastle Quayside. Largely because the story of the Kittiwakes was shared on social media, a variety of agencies were encouraged into action and many birds were rescued and saved. Social media, helps “Kittiwakes upon the Tyne’ share news and developments across the internet.
If you are on twitter yourself, please follow us, and help us raise awareness and act as a voice. It also helps us with ‘Search Engine Optimisation’, as the more followers we have, increases our chances of appearing further up the list in users searches. This is particularly important at this time, with this website being so very new and a domain only registered in April 2018. Please follow @KittiwakesTyne and help ‘Raise Awareness’ for our well loved Tyne Kittiwakes.
“Have you found any wildlife which has become trapped in anti-bird netting on Newcastle or Gateshead Quayside? Should anyone find a trapped or injured Kittiwake this season, please contact the RSPCA’s 24-hour cruelty and advice helpline on 0300 1234 999. To help officers locate birds in trouble explaining where they can be viewed from is very useful.”
