Time for a Little Chat: Using Twitter to Support Walkability Initiatives

This presentation is part of the Walking into the Future: Technology and the Walking Movement session.

Many organizations have yet to take the first step of hosting or participating in a Twitter chat. They are missing out on a great opportunity! Chats provide the opportunity to inform, advocate, and enhance your peer network. This presentation provides an overview of recent walkability-related Twitter chats organized by or supported by the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center. Topics covered include the basics of conducting Tweet chats, developing engaging questions for a chat, setting up the logistics, drawing potential participants to your chat, and using the results of a chat to continue the conversation on walkability and accessibility issues.

Presenter: Rachel Beyerle, Communications Director, National Aging and Disability Transportation Center
