Participating in OST Social Media Monday is important and this is what you can do:
- Share your testimony: If you are testifying, tweet/Facebook a link to your testimony.
- Tweet/Facebook important quotes: Did a CM say something important? Did a witness? Share that with your followers and friends.
And how do you share? First, post or tweet with the hashtags, in order of preference of use, #savecyitc and #dcfy13. Second, if you are tweeting, mention CMs using their Twitter handle. If using Facebook, post comments to a CM's wall. Not sure where the CMs are online? Refer to this Google Docs list.
- RT and share: If you find something to share, retweet it or like, comment, or share on Facebook.
