WWF Earth Hour 2011: Virtually Switch Off Lights

Earlier today we reminded you that today (Saturday, March 26) WWF Earth Hour 2011 takes place, for those of you who have never heard of Earth Hour it is an event which takes place at 8.30PM annually where people turn off lights and unnecessary electrical equipment, this has been set up to remind us of climate change.

Some stores have confirmed that they will be taking part in Earth Hour 2011, now we have found a way for you to do your bit and spread the word via social networking thanks to the “Lights Out” Twitter application.

If you head over to you can use the application, simply choose your time zone and then click the “Sign in with Twitter” button, once done you have to allow the app access to your Twitter account and it will modify your Twitter image by adding the Earth Hour logo to it, also it will tweet this message “Prepare yourself for Earth Hour 2011 with the “Lights Off” Twitter-application. #earthhour“.

At 8.30PM the “lights will be switched out” on my Twitter image, meaning that all you will see is a black box with the Earth Hour logo showing, it will be interesting to see how many people’s Twitter pictures have their lights turned out at 8.30PM tonight, once the hour is up you can “turn the light back on” here.

Will you “turned the lights out” on your Twitter account?
