The Big Tweet 2019!

This year, the Missing People annual Big Tweet, was the big event at the end of our first ever Find Every Child Week. For the second year in a row, we hosted the event at Twitter HQ in London. An appeal for a missing child was tweeted every half an hour for 12 hours. Special guests came along to Twitter to join #TeamBigTweet and help us #FindEveryChild. Below is a photo account of the day... ENJOY!

Our 12-hour tweet-athon started bright and early at 
Twitter HQ with some of the comms/publicity team. 

This is Kate from the publicity team. 
She was on hand during the day to keep an eye on all the appeals to
ensure we were ready if a child was found.
