Social media can be a powerful tool to inform many people at once of an event or issue. Adding a personal note to a shared article, event, or topic can help make posts more relate-able and understandable. There are some important things to remember when using Twitter or other social media.
When you tweet:
- Your audience is the broad public (anyone can see it).
- Advertise commitments and outcomes received during your visits with elected officials.
- Tweet to mobilize and energize your followers, and share time sensitive information.
