Last month, Twitter demonstrated again that it could mobilize the masses to support a good cause – tweeters worldwide helped the US-based #beatcancer campaign raise $70,000 for four cancer charities AND set a new Guinness World Record for the distribution of the largest mass message through social media.

The Royal British Legion is the latest example of a charity tapping into the goodwill spirit of the Twitter community. Through a Twitter profile set up to support this year’s Poppy Appeal, the organisation has asked the Twittersphere to honor the servicemen and civilians killed in Britain’s wars by extending Remembrance Day’s annual two minutes of silence to the online space.

If you’re on Twitter, why not show your support for this honorable movement by retweeting this message from the Royal British Legion:

RT @poppysupport ►►► 2 minute silence on Twitter, 11:00am GMT on Wed 11 November ►►► RT please! #2minutesilence

Taking that extra step and contributing to the Poppy Appeal allows the Royal British Legion to continue their charity work with servicewomen/servicemen and their families.

We hope to see #2minutesilence in the trending topics leading up to the two minute of silence on Wednesday.
