#SAVETHEHOUR TWITTER PARTY - HELP US GET A SERIES THREEWHAT:  A get together on Twitter to get #savethehour trending! 
It’s official: BEN WHISHAW himself has heard about the campaign, and not only seemed quite genuinely pleased with it, but he also sincerely expressed how he was very shocked and saddened for the BBC to decline letting the series be completed.  So, it is now more than ever that we need to get #savethehour trending! WHY:  The Hour was canceled before it’s third and final series on a major cliffhanger, without closure for the characters or the fans. Many recent fan campaigns such as the one for Community have used Twitter to show “the powers that be” viewer dedication to their favorite show. As a widely used social media platform by “people of influence” and fans alike it’s a perfect way to show in great numbers how much we care about The Hour getting a final series to come to its intended conclusion.
Oona Chaplin (Marnie Madden), Lisa Greenwood (Sissy Cooper), and Ben Whishaw (Freddie Lyon) have all in some way mentioned the campaign, and Abi Morgan (Head Writer and Creator) and Romola Garai (Bel Rowley) have expressed the desire to finish the series. WHEN: THURSDAY, MARCH 14TH @ 9 PM GMT  MARK YOUR CALENDARS! (TIME ZONE CONVERTER) WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Join us on Twitter this Thursday.
Tweet @BBC, @BBCTWOUK, and @KudosTV (the show’s producers) your desire to see a third and final series.
Make sure to use the hashtag: #savethehour in your tweets so we can get it trending! Secondly:
Feel free to tweet any news outlets and “celebrity” fans as well telling them about #savethehour and a need for a third series. Some great candidates are:
Ian Wylie (reported on Ben’s interview about the campaign)
Digital Spy
Radio Times
Andrew Romano of Newsweek (wrote a glowing review of Series Two in the U.S.)
TV Guide’s Matt Roush (wrote a glowing review of Series Two in the U.S.)This is far from limited to these folks, however.  Also, please remember to be respectful no matter who you are tweeting.I DON’T HAVE A TWITTER: It’s completely free and easy to make one! I hardly used Twitter before this campaign. Now I’m using it often.  To trend we need absolutely everyone who is a fan of this show or who knows how it feels to lose your favorites before their time. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never campaigned, are a casual fan, a hardcore fan, or a friend of a fan; are new or old to the fandom, or have thought about watching but have not gotten to it yet. It doesn’t matter if you don’t Tumblr, or haven’t been a part of the campaign yet. Don’t be shy!   This group and the television community is a family. WE NEED EVERY ONE OF YOU.

By all means continue to tweet daily as well.  Keep the #savethehour tag active. 
Lets show the BBC this show has an amazing, dedicated following that wants a series three. Lets give the series the chance to close as it was intended.  Fans can change things.  
Whether you are in this fandom or not, please help us realize the reality of seeing our show finish as we had all hoped desperately for.  Please promote this.  Reblog it.  Tweet it.  Facebook it. Livejournal it (no, really).  Tell your friends.  We need as many people to know about this as possible.  Thank you!
