Royal British Legion calls for two-minute Twitter silence 11am 11/11

Observing a two-minute silence at 11am on Armistice Day, 11th November, is generally well accepted, at least in countries that were directly affected by the two World Wars, but now the Royal British Legion is calling for a similar observance on Twitter.

The #2minutesilence hashtag is gaining traction since it was introduced by @PoppySupport.

The Royal British Legion is hoping to appeal to the “Afghanistan generation” who use Facebook and Twitter.

The UK’s Ministry of Defence has said that it will actively sponsor soldiers who are willing to tweet or blog about life in the military. Twitter is a good way for troops to stay in touch with loved ones back home.
