  28. 28. Morgan Johnston#NHCrisisComm“With the growth of social, the need to respond comes as fast as the initial Tweets are seen”“SM allows us to own our message, talking directly to our customers rather than through the filterof more established media channels. To a company like JetBlue that values transparency anddirect relationships with our customers, this is an incredible opportunity”"A social community is likely to quickly start drawing their own conclusions on any story. Thisearly misinformation can often overpower late-but-accurate statements""The value of a sustained direct and honest dialog with customers through social media can beinvaluable in times of crisis. Our focus on those individual connections with our customers, andthe humanity we inspire with open conversations generates a lot of good will. That good willreturns to us as trust in our desire to confront a crisis when they hit"#NHCrisisComm@MHJohnston

What you can do is address themquickly and efficiently.Advice to a brand dealing with a communications crisis for the first time:Have a crisis plan in place, whether you expect one or not.
