Tips for Tweeting the Meeting

Include the meeting hashtag (#SGIM18) on all tweets. Tweets with this hashtag will be displayed on Tweetwalls at the meeting. Include the speaker's Twitter handle in your tweets whenever possible.


Tips for Presenters

Highlight the annual meeting hashtag (#SGIM18) on your slides-either on the title slide or on the footer of every slide. If you have an account, include your Twitter handle (i.e. @SocietyGIM) on your slides. Encourage attendees to tweet you with questions or comments. Follow up after your talk to keep the conversations going.
