There’s one day a year that everyone joins in to celebrate a very special person: dad. In fact, last year there were over 37.8 million Tweets about #FathersDay.*

With a little planning, you can use the occasion to connect with a wider audience before, during, and after June 18h. By following and experimenting with these approaches, you won’t just be inserting yourself into the conversation for the sake of it — you’ll add value to your followers and express your personality in a genuine way.

Put your product in the spotlight with GIFs
