Try Twitter at Lib Dem Spring Conference!

Lib Dem Twitterers unite #ldconf on

You can get your Spring Conference news here on this site, but did you know that Lib Dem Voice has its own boutique version for the time-pressed delegate, on microblogging site Twitter?

As well as tweeting when we’ve published a new post, there’ll also be exclusive photos and videos from Harrogate!

The first video on our new channel is a reminder of the conference hashtag – that’s a way of labelling tweets, blog posts, Flickr photos, etc, to make it easier to search for them.

#ldconf is the hashtag we’ve adopted for this, and all Liberal Democrat Federal conferences. All tweets with this tag can be viewed together at sites like Twitter Search. It’s handy to bookmark the address and refer back to it to see the story developing, through the contributions of many people.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can still check our feed occasionally at but even better, sign up and make sure you “follow” us on your PC or handheld device.

And because social media isn’t just for luvvies, we’d like to encourage all Lib Dem twitterers (whether from Harrogate or home) to join in. You too can report live from the Conference Hall, critique the Leader’s speech or give your opinion on the debates.

Share your photos through Twitpic and your video snippets through Link those to your Twitter account and you’ve got a multimedia extravaganza on your hands!

Both sites even issue you with your own unique email address so you can put the title (including hashtag!) in the subject line, leave the body of the message blank and send it straight to your own account. It will be posted in moments.

As Alex and Alix have said, we welcome contributions to Lib Dem Voice on [email protected].

Looking forward to hearing lots of other Lib Dem Voices this Conference!
