Live tweeting protests, panels, elections days, conferences (like the one we’re at today!) and even TV shows are some of the most effective ways to grow an engaged Twitter following for yourself and/or your organization. We’ll share strategies for live tweeting that you can use right away so that your being at #NN18 will grow your Twitter account. We’ll show the value of leveraging personal and organizational Twitter accounts together. Learn how popular culture moments like award shows and TV twitter present opportunities for Twitter engagement beyond your existing base. Skill level: If you or your organization has a Twitter account and use it, even occasionally and poorly, you’ll be good to go. If you’ve never seen Twitter before, this may not be a fit.
