Twitter will help you prepare for election day
As the US heads closer to November's midterm elections, a number of social platforms are making an effort to encourage their users to vote. The latest to join in is Twitter, which launched its #BeAVoter campaign today. Through the campaign, Twitter will connect users to TurboVote, a nonprofit that can help them register to vote, sign up for election reminders and apply for absentee ballots. The #BeAVoter effort will be featured in Twitter's top US trends and in a prompt in users' timelines.
Facebook expanded its US election reminders to include local elections last year. And Instagram launched its voter registration campaign -- also in partnership with TurboVote -- earlier this month.
"Twitter is where people go to for news and information about elections," the company said in a blog post, "and it is our obligation to ensure that we meet this expectation and provide a platform that promotes healthy, public conversation and surfaces reliable information for voters."
