Charlotte is indeed a social media savvy town and with the Democratic National Convention coming next week  — social media will be the front row seat to what is happening at the convention. The Historic South End placed together a wonderful, but not exhaustive, great, but subjective list of DNC Hashtag Resources for the thousands of people that will descend on Charlotte, in addition to the millions who will be watching around the world via social media.

Subjective definitely…lol So, I decided to place together a list of resources for Black Charlotte. But please also check out Historic South End’s list because they did a great job placing these resources together. If I missed or need to add something, let me know! This is not exhaustive of Black Charlotte.

Tweetup Participants Get a Behind-the-Scenes Look at Convention Planning [VIDEO]

I remember this interview! 🙂 I got interviewed by the DNCC…and at first I was reluctant to watch, because I like to be BEHIND-THE-SCENES…lol However, one of my new twitter friends @JoyCookPR pointed out that I should watch the video and I did. And guess what, Joy was right, I didn’t do too bad… I actually did pretty well.

On Monday, July 16th, the Democratic National Convention Committee hosted its first ever official convention Tweetup.  Eighteen grassroots individuals from across the region were selected from hundreds of applicants to receive a behind-the-scenes look at our convention planning. Tweetup participants attended a press conference where Convention CEO Steve Kerrigan received the keys to the Time Warner Cable Arena to begin construction to transform the facility into a world class convention hall.
