Twitter POET (Public Outreach Evaluation Tool) workshop

As part of two Horizon Digital Economy Research projects (CaSMa & CREATe) we are developing a tool to help Twitter users measure and improve the impact of their social media activity.

This is a half-day workshop to get input from Twitter users regarding the features that you would look for in a tool to help you to optimise the effectiveness of your public engagement through Twitter. The outcomes of this workshop will feed directly into the design of a Twitter tool that is currently being developed at Horizon Digital Economy Research.
