MODULE: Promote Yourselves
Twitter is a great way of engaging with students in fast time, you can share updates and messages with your following and reach out to new followers through hashtags and trending topics.
As a society, you are representing BSU when posting online. We must ask that you refrain from posting anything inappropriate or offensive. Failure to do so will lead to your account being taken down and in extreme circumstances, further consequences.
Important to Note: What goes on Twitter will always be there (even when deleted) and will be accessible by the authority. Do NOT post/share inappropriate content that could harm the reputation of the Society, the Brighton Students Union or the University of Brighton.
Setting Up A Page
We highly recommend creating/maintaining a Society Twitter Page to communicate with prospective members and to promote all your events and activities.
The twitter page allows the logo to remain the consistent profile picture, with the cover photo being able to adapt to upcoming events.
This twitter page will allow you to update your channel accordingly with tweets, header photos and shared images. It’s a great way to share what you’re up to with your followers.
Setting up Access
As a member of the committee, everyone is entitled to have full access to the page.
This enables all members to post and edit the content that goes on the page – as well as replying to any messages you may receive.
Due to the nature of Twitter, there is no way of multiple people logging in as admins, so you will have to share the login information will all people that you believe should have access to the page.
The VP Social should be responsible for set up of any new committee positions during the handover process.
Please Note: No member should post/share anything that is not directly related to the running of the society.
When sending messages on behalf of the society, it’s important to be professional and polite. The reputation of the society and Brighton Students’ Union will be effected if poor conduct is used.
Upon receiving commercial requests, please direct people to the Sales and Contract Manager, Aaron. His email is email@example.com
It’s really important to remember your affiliation with Brighton Student’s Union when you post your Society photos on Twitter.
Make sure to remove any inappropriate images that could offend someone, and if you are contacted to remove a photo, you have an obligation to do so.
