#FindYourStory: Creating a sudden urge to act!

A TweetSheet from #FindYourStory, the PRSA Southeast Conference in Greenville, SC

I’m so glad you’re tweeting from #FindYourStory!

I know I move fast and sometimes it’s hard to keep up. That’s why I’ve created this handy-dandy list of tweetable stuff from today’s presentation! Feel free to use it as you see fit. This is what I call a Tweet Sheet!

Here are a couple of tips:

  • Edit anything you’d like as you’re Tweeting. Cut, copy, paste – even add a picture if you think it’s worth it!
  • You don’t have to Tweet all of this – only the stuff you think is really worthwhile.
  • You may want to add the Hashtag for today’s event to each Tweet. (I didn’t have time to add them for you.)
  • Have fun. I am.
