How To's With Twitter Activism: The Basics

Tweets come in different forms.


  • Original tweet:   You post your own tweet with information you want to share.
    • Include detailed information, full thought.
    • Use @ for those folks you mention. If you use a person's @ at the beginning of your tweet, be sure to put a "." before the @. As an example: 
      • .@realerincruz is running for US Senate in 2022. Go to voteerincruz.com to find out more information.
    • Include links last as "content text" in your tweet so they populate.
    • Photos/MEMEs should be added last after your links, should you choose to add this element to your tweet.


  • Reply tweet:   Should be a complete thought, responding to the person you are responding to.


  • Quote Tweet:   It is a tweet is when you want to go one step further and share another person's tweet / information with your unique thoughts and information. It is customary and polite to then RT (Retweet) the tweet you quote after quoting it. 

Don't forget to add your desired Member of Congress: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/members


Method:


  • Retweet:
    •  #TeamErinCruz members are to RETWEET @realerincruz, @teamerincruz, @theerincruzshow tweets
    • #TeamErinCruz members are to REPLY to the above tweet you retweeted. Preferably a full thought.
    • #TeamErinCruz members are to INTERACT with people on the thread, where applicable.
      • The goal is to connect and share information and thoughts productive and constructive.
      • While conflict happens, we must display appropriate interactions relevant to the issues. Bullying and combative behavior is a zero tolerance issue

Happy tweeting, #TeamErinCruz!
