When Social Media Gets Political

Crossing Party Lines

Location: Online

Anyone who has encountered political tweets and posts has faced the dilemma of how to respond to them. Options run the gamut from simply ignoring them to “educating” or unfriending the poster. Have you ever wondered how others have handled it? Has anyone found a response that works well for them?

Join us as we share our stories! For those that are willing, come prepared to share an example of an online exchange where emotions were flying and how it ended.

Think about that event and ask:

  • Were you the target or the perpetrator of the event?
  • What started it?
  • Would the reaction have been the same if it was in person?

Join the Crossing Party Lines discussion and have a voice in our Nation’s Conversation! People of all views are welcomed, appreciated, and heard.
