An Engaged #Twtmoot Audience
On November 20th at 10am PST (1pm EST), please join us in watching the world’s second ever Twitter Moot – and learning about what the law says about your right to a healthy global atmosphere.
Following the #Twtmoot
You don't need to be on Twitter to follow the event. On the actual day of the event you can follow along:
West Coast has a “Twitter List” at @WCELaw/twtmoot which follows each of the moot Team Members and Judges. You can view that list even if you’re not logged into Twitter, but if you are, then you can “follow it” as well. Please note that Twitter Lists are not available using most mobile-based Twitter apps.
2. Using our “twitter feed”
By following this link you’ll find a “twitter feed” which, during the Twitter Moot, will display the content of the Twitter List (ie. all the participants) (until then we’ll display who’s saying what using the #twtmoot hashtag). If you want to watch the moot through a normal, non-Twitter related page, simply go to the twitter feed at the start of the Twitter Moot, and catch the action without leaving the West Coast website.
Participating in the #twtmoot discussion
People on Twitter may want to follow the #twtmoot hashtag, both before and during the Twitter Moot (Click here to find out what a hashtag is). Last year there was active discussion about the moot in the weeks leading up to it, as well as during the event itself. Feel free to tweet your:
- Opinion of the legal arguments being discussed and their real-world implications;
- Support for one or more of the teams;
- Thoughts on the event, what’s awesome about it and what’s not;
- Any other #twtmoot related thoughts.
Obviously following the hashtag won’t guarantee that you’ll see everything that the participants tweet during the event (since they won’t always use the hashtag). For that, use one of the above methods. However, you can see what other Tweeps are saying about the moot, including comments, heckling, discussion, etc., and join in with your own comments.
Feel free to give words of advice or encouragement to each team on a team’s twittermoot web page (coming soon), as well as over Twitter.
In addition, please support this kind of innovative social media event, with its potential to raise public awareness about environmental law and the need to protect our environment, by making a donation.
