Twitter outreach

Postby rosten » Fri Mar 21, 2014 10:47 am

So is there an "official" hashtag to use for this? #VLASS perhaps?

Good question - I would think #VLASS would be reasonable, or maybe something more prosaic like #VLASky (#JanSkyVLA is probably too punnish)

We probably should start issuing some tweets from @TheNRAO on the VLASS soon.

I think #VLASS makes the most sense. If @theNRAO was to make the first tweet with that hashtag, it would be a good introduction.

There have been suggestions we give the survey a better name than VLASS when we actually write the proposal. In fact, these working groups might suggest better names. But it would be useful to get something out on twitter in time for some input.

Casey Law ‏@caseyjlaw started tweeting #VLASS from the #AASTCS2 #exascaleradio meeting for my talk. But it does look like #VLASS does get other unrelated use. Does that matter? #TheVLASS or #TheVLASky look pristine.

Hi, everyone! I think #VLASS is just fine. When searching for previous use, it only comes up in a few junky-looking tweets, and that only once every few months. So it is perfectly reasonable to take it over, as Casey already has!

I would discourage hashtags that require case sensitivity to look good... it's just not conducive to fast thumb-typing or swyping on mobile devices. Hashtags are not case sensitive by default, so I tend to stick to ones that look good in all upper or lower case.

How many users are really involved into VLASS hashtag?

Seems not to be very popular. I have a group of students really interested about following it, so please give me a light to orientate them.

Cheers

Hello. Nan from EPO in Charlottesville. What about using #VLAskysurvey? It may be helpful to spell out what we're doing. Let me know what you think!
