Dragons and social media

The use of social media for any person, club or business is now a must, the chances are that you have arrived at this little blog of ours via one of our links. It is through websites such as Twitter and Facebook that the Dragons name continues to grow.

On the 28th of July the Dragons set about making one last rallying call to raise awareness about Breast Cancer ( Their chosen Charity for 2012 ) before the end of the Olympics on August 12th. Turning our Twitter page pink we encouraged many people to do the same in our #Olympink promotion, we thank everyone who did this. While this was ongoing, Co – Founder Chris Roberts set himself a task of trying to get retweets off celebrity and sports personalities to get the Dragons message across 10 million twitter users.
