We recently received this email from ACS (see below). ACS will be using Twitter heavily at the Spring ACS meeting but it only works if ACS members are following the feed. To encourage us to sign up they are holding a contest - the Division with the most Twitter followers who send the designated tweet will win refreshments at one of their sessions. So follow the instructions below - and help CINF be the winner! Best, --Carmen
Tweet Your Division to Coffee!
Twitter will be the primary tool for disseminating late-breaking news and announcements during the spring 2012 national meeting. To maximize the effectiveness of this communication tool, we need maximum participation and your support. ACS is hosting a pre-meeting contest on Twitter and will reward Divisions that have successfully encouraged their members to be social media savvy. The Divisions with the most followers added between February 1 & March 9 will win a free coffee break for one day during a technical session (AM or PM) of their choosing during the national meeting in San Diego!
To participate in the competition, each division must encourage their members to follow ACS @ACSNatlMtg and Tweet the Acronym of Division & exciting chemistry at #acssandiego.
Followers will receive up-to-the-minute national meeting information such as:
Special bonus: All tweets posted during the national meeting using the hashtag #ACSSanDiego will be featured on-site on our twitter wall!
A running tally will be distributed to chairs. Divisions will be awarded in three categories: 1) Less than 2000 members; 2) 2000-3499 members and 3) 3500 members and larger. All members are encouraged to participate even if they are not registered for the meeting.
