#Pawties and Events are where anipals and humans get together for a Twitterin’ good time. In their tweets they use an introductory hashtag (#) so everyone who wants to join in the fun can easily find them by searching Twitter for #(fill in the blank) pawty or #(event name). #Pawties and Events is where you will find out about the #Pawties taking place on Twitter and where I will point you to the official The Anipal Times #Pawty & Events Calendar. Remember to check out the calendar so that you can find the dates and times to mix and mingle with anipals. Now, let’s read about some of the #pawties and events that happened by the deadline for this article (oh, and if you don’t know how to #pawty, don’t worry I got you covered—just read this):
#KollegeGame On Saturday 27 October 2012 anipals gathered at the world famous Anipal Stadium in NYC, New York, USA, to join #KollegeGame hosts @Whskr, @TweetingTruman, @PuppyNumber7, @NancyCakeFace and @MizzBassie in a knock-out football game to help raises spirits and funds for @SpookyShorty‘s cancer treatment. #KollegeGame proved to be a boisterous gathering of tons of online friends who wanted to play some football and celebrate @SpookyShorty’s state of being in remission from lymphoma. While @SpookyShorty is doing better, he still has some difficulties that he is working through—a biopsy to determine the cause of his intestinal wall’s thickening. #KollegeGame provided a reprieve from the worry of future testing and also gave @SpookyShorty’s mom an opportunity to thank all of the anipals who have supported their family.
#KollegeGame proved to be a hilarious pawty full of rowdy pals dressed up in their favorite college football uniform, or player, or cheerleader—at one point, it was hard to see all of the tossing of footballs and the resulting game score through all of the anipals on the field, in the stands, screaming and jumping, and at one point singing along with all of the wonderful DJs #KollegeGame-themed music! @DakotaBDog, @NewtTheCat, @Bea_Bells, @SamTheWatcher and @PuppyNumber7 rocked the stadium, and got all of the anipals on their feet to cheer for their favorite players. Everyone worked up a big appetite, and luckily some great tailgate food was served up by @DashKitten, @WallsEKatt, @TweetyPie54, @DoggyMolly and @DylCat1. Enthusiasm and a good time reigned at #KollegeGame—and, it’s not over. You can still donate and get entered for your chance at some great raffle prizes—like this beautiful, handmade bunny. @SpookyShorty thanks everyone—and we thank him for his great #KollegeGame and his wonderful friendship!
