Live Tweeting no more…

Well maybe no more…I guess it depends on what you plan for your client strategy and implementation and your social media blitz. But you are done with your “official” Live Tweeting for the semester.

So now, provide a few observations you have about your own live-tweeting and the live-tweeting of your classmates. Who was the best Tweeter (other than you)? Why?

What do you wish you would have known before you started this process? What did you learn? What one piece of advice would you give to someone who was assigned to live Tweet and event?

Embed your best Tweet in your response and explain why it is your best.

  1. I love live tweeting. I learned something new everytime I covered an event. What I saw from others that I wish I did myself was give an overview of the event before it starts. I also wish I did more of a conclusion but to my defense the midnight madness event just ended randomly. I enjoyed Gracie’s coverage it was organized and quick. I learned so much and continue to learn everytime I cover an event. I learned what kind of post got people’s attention and what turned them away. I learned many tricks with Twitter and how you’re able to use the site to do so much more. I learned how to make a poll very quickly and was able to share that with a classmate. I also learned and was introduced to periscope which is my new fav. And I have not stopped raving about it. My advice to someone who is live tweeting would be to get there early, use hashtags, and let your personality show through your tweets. This won’t be the last time I cover an event. I LOVE LIVE TWEETING! Ps. If you are using your phone to tweet etc. MAKE SURE IT IS CHARGED!!!

  2. Well I have not completed the 2nd live tweeting but will be done today. To me Oni had the best live tweets. The work she did for News Engagement Day was great. One thing I wish I would’ve known before starting this process was to tweet that you were going to be live tweeting 30 minutes before you actually start live tweeting. I learned to always use hash tags and tag people that you are talking about so that you are able to start a conversation. One piece of advice I would give someone who is assigned to live tweet is to give a variety of tweets. Have pictures, quotes, videos and even live video. Be creative.


    My best live tweet was on News Engagement Day. To me, it is my best because I used hash tags, put a picture that shows us having a good time.

  3. From what I could see, I think we all had some great posts, and some that could use some improvements. I like Oni’s use of Periscope and videos to get the vibe of Midnight Madness. Akeel did great by implementing a survey into his coverage of the Wesleyan commercials. I think by double checking before we post and making sure the grammar and spelling is correct, that would improve our posts. I also think that tweeting about the event coming up in a day or two could increase followers and make the tweeting more successful.

  4. I believe that Oni was the best live tweeter. She tweeted a lot of videos as well as pictures. One thing that I absolutely loved about her tweeting that was different than the rest of ours is that she used Periscope, and I think that this made her live tweeting stronger than the rest of ours was.
    I live tweeted a game both times and so I wish that I had known about “@ramsports” so that I would have tagged them in both of my introductory tweets. One thing I learned (from my first live tweeting experience) is that if I don’t have all of the information that I need (such as a roster) I can find someone who has it. One piece of advice that I would give to someone who is going to live tweet would be, make sure to take advantage of hashtags as well as “@”ing people.

    This was my best tweet because I used live footage of the game winning goal.
