Activism: please use words instead of pictures

Thanks to everyone who help raise awareness.
Just a thought. I’ve noticed a number of Twitter users who help raise awareness are using links as well as pictures of quoted text. (Not sure if it is the same case on other social media)
I know our energy is always limited but if you can, try to add text as well (like a quote from the artice) so that there are more facts available to the public on search engines. People are often too lazy to click on links.
