Running an interactive Twitter-style phase

Drafting, publishing and managing tweets in an Interactive Twitter phase.

  • While a facilitator can write a Tweet using the main compose box, this will publish the tweet as the logged in user which is not normally desirable.
  • Instead, click on the Control button to access the facilitators interface.
  • Choose the Author you want to create the tweet as. Authors are split into groups based on their assigned type.
  • Compose the tweet, and choose whether to publish it immediately, or save it as a draft for later.
  • A large number of drafts can be stored for quick publishing during the phase.
  • If a tweet is accidentally published / incorrect, it can be deleted.
