“Twitter is already a raging stream of STEM content…”
This statement makes me happy. Also, it’s so true. :-)
A standardized hashtag across the network would be a good idea, and we can still use Twitter or Facebook. If anything, that shows our activity to users of social media who aren’t teens (educators, parents, potential funders, etc.)
And I agree, beyond the brand social media, it will be up to the youth leaders to use social media as effectively as possible to recruit other teens! But if there is a local Cafe account for them to follow and retweet (reblog, repost, etc.) that helps us help them share the word.
