How to Participate

Use Twitter to spread the word about Dark Patterns. It's the most effective way to put pressure onto companies to stop using Dark Patterns.                 

  • Retweet, quote and favorite other people's tweets about Dark Patterns.
  • @mention the offending brands and tell them what you think about their practices.

  • When you see a Dark Pattern, take screenshots and tweet it. Mention @darkpatterns or use the hashtag #darkpattern.

  • If you've got an example that doesn't fit into a tweet, you can use a platform like medium or imgur, then tweet it.

  • If you're a journalist, you can contact us press@darkpatterns.org. We aren't great at responding to email — Twitter is best.
