We have no idea how a press conference on Twitter is going to pan out, of course. But it sounds like fun, so we'll try it anyway. Everyone is welcome join in and help. It's super-easy. Here is how it works:
posted it on lanyrd just incase
I know, lanyrd is for online and offline confs, but why not posting a twitter conf too. Please, attend/track etc
do we have a standard procedure to request a micro-twitterstorm
For the event: create the event and call everyone on twitter?
ideally you would have a post announcing it: purpose, day, time + hashtag. but i think even for a micro twitterstorm as you call it you'd need to prepare days ahead, otherwise it's not a storm
so the magic starter of twitter storm is
a post&an event.
May be list of tweets, or a link to a text/texts from which the tweets are taken?
Yes, 2 days in advance is not a storm. And a little swirl can be made on the spot, so no need to plan.
You can't pre-determine the size of a Twitterstorm. You push it out as best as you can, and hope it go get really big. The excitement of being part of a large swarm in action is the only reward you can give to participants: if you decide beforehands you are going to stay small most people are not going to be interested. You might as well not bother!
Yes, storms are huge and unpredictable. I think I was thinking about another species. It is smaller. I know they exist. May be tey should not be classified at all.
