After a little time with TEC Twitter I wanted to make some comments and request input. Clearly a single person can not easily represent the opinions of a group. I would like to nurture our community’s connection to the TEC Twitter account. We as a community must consider this question: What tone should our Twitter strive for? What pace and style shall we broadcast from our twitter, and where to we draw the line with fringe conversation. In the blink of an eye the topic can switch from Xbox to Covid to politics.
The only true cleanest Twitter is an Announcements channel that prohibits public comments. As we grow we may need to splinter into 2 accounts We get all kinds of flavours of comments! I would hate to taint the TEC reputation by engaging with a troll or spam. Right now 1 channel suits us nicely imo.
I want to find ways for community members to share their voices so that our Twitter account more accurately represents the community. Not just my voice! Most of the time I can maintain a professional sterile tone alas the human-ness in me sneaks out occasionally. Like at 1am when sleep is overtaking me. Let me apologize in advance for those ones. Sorry folks!
In 1hive there is a discord channel ‘Social Curation’ in which anyone can post suggestions for social media posts for the community. They vote by emoji. After 24 hours the up/down emojis are counted and a win causes a human to publish the potential post.
I’d love to open a conversation about helping the TEC twitter reflect YOU, or maybe strictly Token Engineering, or maybe your cat. Please comment
