In support of World AIDS Day, Twitter and Facebook have gone (RED) for the day.

Facebook is running a campaign at facebook.com/joinred, where you can share the (RED) video, change your profile pic to a (RED) photo to support AIDS awareness, or shop (RED) products.

Twitter’s support is much more pervasive across the site, which is respectable. They replaced their usual homepage design with (RED) galore, including a red ribbon of text that implores users to “turn Twitter (RED)”. But how do we do that? Well, it says we can “follow @JoinRED to find out”! After visiting @JoinRED, I realized that there are three main ways to “turn Twitter red”:

1.) Use the hashtag #red
2.) Use the hashtag #laceupsavelives
3.) Turn tweets the color red

Above: If you use the hastags #red or #laceupsavelives, or tweet the word “red” your tweets turn red

Well, well, well! Get on it tweeters!
