Twitter Guidelines

Girl Scouts can communicate with each other through Twitter by using specific guidelines to make sure the Girl Scout values are upheld.

Twitter is the ultimate meet and greet place, and is quickly becoming THE place to meet and network and share info. For this reason it is vital that you come across as a nice and respectful person. How you act and behave is extremely important in people deciding to follow and befriend you. Too many people are only concerned with the amount of followers they have and forget to be nice. This is counter productive. Here are a few ways that a person can come across as pleasant on Twitter and be liked by fellow tweeters.

  • A good way to get exposure is to re-tweet inspiring tweets. Re-tweeting keeps the source of the information intact.
  • Twitter is not for chatting. Remember that everything is public and visible.
  • Tweet within your affiliated groups along with branching outside to make people aware of Girl Scout Activities.
  • Make sure you tag sources correctly if you are presenting information for the first time.

What is a hashtag?

A Twitter hashtag is simply a keyword phrase, spelled out without spaces, with a pound sign (#) in front of it. For example, #inboundchat and #ILoveChocolate are both hashtags.

What does a hashtag do?

A Twitter hashtag ties the conversations of different users into one stream, which you can find by searching the hashtag in Twitter Search.

Examples:

”Right is right, even if no one else does it” #JulietteLow

”Scouting rises within you and inspires you to put forth your best” #JulietteLow

“Make new friends, but keep the old”

“Girl scout green is the new black”

#GirlsWill “understand themselves and their values”

#GirlsWill “care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally”

“Become a member of a larger community in”  #GirlScouts
