    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C HSocial media will save us! Or not?• Social media: important component of modern advocacy plan — but you need to consider strategy & staffing• We were seduced by its grassroots vibe and got burnt — so we refocused on traditional targets: policy-makers & journalists just in time for the Arab Spring• Devise a SM strategy you can apply to different platforms• Rather than enlist our followers, we trained our staff @HRW on Twitter
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C HSocial media platforms Arabic Facebook 30,000 fans – Primary outlet in Libya @hrw 100,000 new followers since January YouTube 2 million views Tumblr 1,000 followers StumbleUpon Content partnership Pinterest Trying to wrest ‘hrw’ from a 17-year-old
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C HSocial media advocacy• Twitter emerged as seamless fit to our traditional advocacy tools• Noticed journalists were using Twitter to aggregate content, source stories (and promote selves)• Easy to identify journalists• Policy makers engage – Durbin’s office requested @hrw to RT• Effective way to cross promote with partner NGOs
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C HSome successes• Arab Spring: In addition to mainstream coverage, Twitter & a general shift to short-form writing fed into live blogs (NY Times, Guardian, Al Jazeera)• Following big enough to influence most popular algorithms on other websites• @KenRoth listed in Foreign Policy’s 2012 Top 100 Twitterati list – Shape the story as it breaks
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C H Foreign Policy’s Twitterati 100Whos who of the foreign-policy Twitterverse in 2011—Pundits: • Jackson Diehl (@JacksonDiehl): Deputy editorial page editor at Washington Post. • David Frum (@davidfrum): Canadian pundit and former speechwriter for George W. Bush; sort of coined the phrase “Axis of Evil.” • Nicholas Kristof (@NickKristof): Crusading columnist for NY Times; has traveled to every member of the Axis of Evil at least twice. • Kenneth Roth (@KenRoth): Outspoken executive director of Human Rights Watch.
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C H Twitter tips • Encourage staff, decentralize, social flow • Messaging: Interesting stats, hand crafted, Q&A style, active audiences • Most clicked: • Which country tried more than 12,000 civilians, includingo children, by military tribunal in 2011? • #Bahrain: Doctor sentenced to 15 years in prison. Her "crime," setting up a medical tent to treat protesters • Most retweeted: • Heres how Charles Taylors conviction on war crimes charges changes the world • Mississippi, 50% testing positive for #HIV not receiving treatment, rate comparable to Botswana, Ethiopia, Rwanda
    • H U M A N R I G H T S WAT C HChallenges• Social media often lack official channels to report human rights concerns• Getting advice from Twitter – best practices, search engine optimization, other?• Training staff and defending the time investment• Internally some are still nervous as tweets are not vetted
