Best Practices

1. Tag us! #GWLaw

The easiest way for us to boost your content is if we know it’s posted. Please tag @gwlaw in your updates that pertain to the law school. When possible please utilize #GWLaw when discussing law updates for our community. 

2. Consistency is key 

Maintaining an active account is crucial for the best results. Even if you just retweet the main account, we recommend you are active on Twitter at least once a week. 

3. Use your network 

If you are participating in an event, conference, co-authored op-ed, or any other type of content that involves other colleagues or organizations, tag them! Before you post to see if your colleague or the conference sponsor has a Twitter account. When you tag them you immediately give your post a boost.

Social Media Requests

All published events and news items have been made available to the main social media accounts. If your event requires social media promotion please fill out the Event Request form and a communications team member will relay the information for our social media channels.
