How-To Guide for Social Media
Social media (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogging) can be an effective way to raise
awareness and provide education and resources to constituents. Twitter in particular is a quick
and easy way to push information and engage with constituents. Twitter is an online social
networking service and microblogging service that allows users to send and read text-based
messages of up to 140 characters, known as “tweets”, and “follow” or “be followed” by other
members. Users can also group or link posts together to a specific topic, by using the hashtag (#)
symbol, or interact and connect with other users using the at sign (@). Tweets can keep your
constituents informed and up-to-date on a variety of topics or issues and can be used to generate
or show support for particular issues.
According to Twitter, the following tips will help generate the most visible tweets:
Posts between 1 PM and 3 PM generally see the most user engagement.
Twitter typically sees higher volumes of users earlier in the week, tapering off by Friday.
Use of hashtags can generate increased user interaction, as other users who are interested
in the specific topic will also see your tweet.
By following individuals or organizations that are either like you or interested in similar
topics, you can generate increased user interaction.
