1 How You Can Participate | West Coast Environmental Law


How You Can Participate

During Twitter Moot 2014 on February 28th at 10am PST (1pm EST) there will be multiple ways to follow the moot.  You didn't need to be on Twitter to follow the event.  

1.      By following the Twitter Moot List

West Coast has a “Twitter List” at @WCELaw/twtmoot which follows each of the moot Team Members and Judges.  If you’re on Twitter, you can follow this list, and, on the day of the event, open it up to watch the action.  Because this list follows the participants directly, it is closest to a “real time” version of the Twitter Moot.  Not on Twitter?  No problem.  You can view the above list without logging into a Twitter account.  Please note that this Twitter List is not available using most mobile-based Twitter apps. 

2.    Using our “twitter feed

Follow this link to get to our “twitter feed” which, during the Twitter Moot, will display the content of the Twitter List (ie. all the participants).  Until then you can sign up for an email reminder.  If you want to watch the moot through a normal, non-Twitter related page, simply come to this page at the start of the Twitter Moot, and catch the action without leaving the West Coast website.  In addition to our moot feed, the page currently has a feed of what people on Twitter are saying about the upcoming Twitter Moot. 

3.    On Facebook
We have a Twitter Feed that you can watch from Facebook (and you can sign up to receive an email reminder).  And you can invite your friends to participate in the fun from the Twitter Moot 2014 event page
4.    Using the #twtmoot hashtag

Another option for those on Twitter is to follow the #twtmoot hashtag (Click here to find out what a hashtag is).  This will capture many (although not necessarily all, if the participants miss using the hashtag) of the tweets sent by the participants, but will also catch what other Tweeps are saying about the moot, including comments, heckling, discussion, etc.  Should be a happy, but possibly confusing, mess, but it may be simpler to use one of the methods above to follow the action. 

In addition, please support this kind of innovative social media event, with its potential to raise public awareness about environmental law and the need to protect our environment, by making a donation.
