140elect helps Democrats win through Twitter
Twitter is everywhere. You can’t turn on cable news or read a story online anymore without seeing Tweets. That’s because the conversation begins on Twitter. Its the platform of choice for digital journalists, news junkies and political activists. These users comprise a politically hyper-engaged audience who mold the conversation nationally. Building an engaged and influential community of supporters on Twitter that work together activates the grassroots, influences the media and educates the public, making this platform a crucial tool to leverage for the 2014 midterm elections and beyond.
Twitter is difficult, especially when you’re getting started. There is no explanation and many give up in frustration. Most importantly, nobody sees your messages until you have followers. Twitter’s unique structure sometimes makes it feel as though you’re shouting into a void. The truth is building an audience who cares about your campaign is challenging and time consuming. Twitter is a marathon, not a sprint.
