NIH Funding Social Media Toolkit

September 13, 2023

Members of Congress maintain social media accounts, particularly on X (formerly known as Twitter), to share information with their constituents, promote their issues, and follow trends. You can make a major impact with only a minute of your time by supporting our advocacy efforts on social media. If you are not already on X, follow these easy steps to set up an account. 

All of our messages are formatted for X, but you are also encouraged to share them on Facebook, Instagram, Threads, and LinkedIn. 

  • Copy our suggested messages and tag your representatives using their social media handles to take action. Make an impact by including images to enhance your posts. 
  • Retweet the @TheEndoSociety posts and tag your representatives using their social media handles to broaden our reach. 
  • Add context by sharing how your research needs support. Mention @TheEndoSociety for other participants to be notified about resharing your messages. 
  • Share our NIH Funding images (see below) with your representatives and tag us in your posts.
