Choose a #hashtag
Tweet an introduction, a conclusion and reminders
In your first message, introduce yourself,: “This is @yourname for @nccnews live-tweeting from John Smith’s talk on local elections at Memorial Hall. Stay tuned for updates #Smith”
In your last message, state that you’ve finished and thank our followers. If you’re going to follow up with news story on the event, tell readers to watch for it soon on nccnewsonline.
Not everyone will be with you from beginning to end. Part way through the event, tweet a reminder message.
For example: “If you’re just joining us, this is @yourname for @nccnews live-tweeting from John Smith’s talk at Memorial Hall #Smith”
