During the past two weeks, you may have noticed a few different things about CropLife America’s Twitter. In addition to regular tweets featuring information and article links to modern agriculture issues, we now utilize a proactive schedule of tweets to provide our followers with consistent information with organized hashtags ranging from #ModernAgMonday to #FollowFriday. Below is a breakdown of our weekly Twitter schedule:
#ModernAgMonday: Using this hashtag, we are able to disseminate concise and timely facts about the benefits of modern agriculture. Example: The population may have doubled, but cropland hasn’t! Farmers provide 18% of the world’s food on 10% of the world’s farmland #ModernAgMonday
#TellMeMoreTuesday: Each Tuesday, we will highlight a specific Tell Me More resource such as posters, infographs and presentations. Example: Stand up for #ag! Check out our poster featuring @jashdillon & @caroKblack of @FarmersFight12 http://goo.gl/ey47Jn #TellMeMoreTuesday
#WithUsWednesday: Our With Us Wednesday hashtag helps to increase engagement with our followers by showing unity within the industry. Example: @ModFarm interviews Kalie Hall of @nationalffa http://goo.gl/8LNysw RT if you think orgs should support #youthinag #WithUsWednesday
#ThankaFarmer: On Thursday, we share article links or facts that highlight the important work of farmers. Example: DYK that one #farmer today is able to feed 145 more people than they were 80 years ago? It’s time to #ThankaFarmer!
#FF (or #FollowFriday): Each Friday, we highlight influential and unique voices on Twitter and ask that other Twitter users follow them. Example: Need some ideas of who to follow? Here are some great #modernag leaders: @jameswesley1 @IFDCTraining @VroomJayJohn @agleader #FF
