Want to significantly expand your Twitter followers strategically to help win your campaigns? This training is for online organizers and activists at an intermediate to advanced level in their use of Twitter. We’ll discuss one of the most powerful and cost-effective tools for building and managing Twitter strategically, and how to use mass direct messaging as part of a campaign plan. We’ll also touch on other tools and what you need to spend money on versus what you can get for free. The training will integrate a wide range of best practices, including how to evaluate results. We’ll do live demos and there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
