Next Week's Twitter Bomb to Promote the Petition to End Racial Violence

As I explained in yesterday's after action report, we learned a lot from Sunday's Twitter Bomb to promote the Petition to End Racial Violence. We're going to put that knowledge to work on this week's bomb. Here's the new plan.

Using the scheduling function of a third party app, like Tweetdeck or Hootsuite, each of us will schedule as many tweets as possible, that include the hashtag "#EndRacialViolence". The beauty of using a scheduling agent is that you can schedule the tweets at any time. I'm going to schedule mine tonight, even thought the "bomb" won't happen until the early hours of next Monday.

We want to concentrate the tweets into as small a time period as possible, to maximize the effects, so, we've decided to schedule it for Monday, February 10, between 4:00-5:00 AM EST. This time slot was selected because it is the least busiest hour on Twitter, giving us a better chance of reaching critical mass. And even though the selected time period is the least busy, the time period just after it is the busiest. Monday is the most active day on Twitter. Things start to pick-up around 6am and activity increases right through to 3pm before beginning to tail-off.

If we are able to get our hashtag to trend in the morning, the maximum number of users will see it, and hopefully begin tweeting it themselves, keeping it in the "Trends" sidebar for as long as possible.

As an example of how you might do it, I'll share my plan. I'm going to schedule 13 simple messages for the assigned time slot (4-5:00 AM EST, next Monday). They will be scheduled to post every 5 minutes beginning at 4AM. The last will go-out at 5AM. It's that easy. Here's the list of my messages (feel free to use these, or you can craft your own):
  • We can't solve a problem that no one will acknowledge. Use the hashtag to spread the word: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/formally-address-issue-black-white-interracial-violent-crime-calling-press-conference-march-3-2014/vTmvLh2Z
