If you’re seeing this page, then you have likely shown interest in joining your state’s digital amplification team or have adopted a #Focus14 state to help push the #BlueWave2020. We’re excited!
Team-based social media amplification is key to our collective success in the digital space – spreading & sharing factual information & actions that can steer our country back in the right direction.
In DemCast, we call ourselves “DemCasters”. WE are the ones who will help inform voters about the politicians, policies & opportunities for action that will affect their lives.
Some background about the DemCast model from our founder, Nick Knudsen:
How you can help:
- Visit your state’s DemCast Twitter room as often as makes sense for you. Help amplify posts you agree with that have been shared in the room by retweeting, liking and/or commenting. Drop your own posts in the room for others to retweet as well.
- Engage in dialogue in the room. There are diverse perspectives across your state, but we all have a goal of winning blue. Create some community and connect with others.
- We encourage you to use our hashtags on your posts. Flag posts relevant to your state using the #DemCast hashtag AND your DemCast state hashtag (#DemCastTX, #DemCastCA, etc.)!
- Every day, do a quick search on the #DemCast hashtag and your state’s hashtag, and amplify posts you agree with. (See the how-to video by Lori below!)
- Check the DemCast State page for your state (or adopted state) frequently and post content on social media, using the hashtag strategy.
- Recruit your friends and organizations to join us!
- Follow everyone in your state room. If you need help figuring out how to do that, don’t hesitate to ask! Many of our amplifiers are new to Twitter rooms when they start.
- Here are some short videos to help you get oriented. The first describes how to use and amplify from the #DemCast hashtags, and the second describes the purpose for our state Twitter groups/rooms and what you should be doing in them.
DemCast is a 501(c)4 nonprofit organization. Please read through our handbook to understand how our organization works.
