#Philly311NLP Tweet Chat Highlight Reel

If you didn’t hear, Philly311 sponsored another tweet chat last night with guest hosts Managing Director Rich Negrin and Deputy Managing Director Rosetta Carrington Lue. The chat’s 6 discussion questions focused on the Philly311 Neighborhood Liaison Program and how city government can help empower community heroes. We’re proud to say that the tweet chat was a success. Throughout the night, the #Philly311NLP hashtag was tweeted 244 times by 67 users. By question 5, #Philly311NLP was trending on Twitter in Philadelphia.

More impressive than the stats, however, was the meaningful conversations the chat produced. The tweet chat was designed to facilitate a brainstorm of sorts between city officials and constituents– and it did. Through the course of the hour we heard innovative ideas on the city’s youth can become more engaged in their community, about how neighborhoods can stay safe, and what city government can do about it.

Last night’s tweet chat was an exercise in government accessibility and citizen engagement. It was an important excise as every Philadelphian deserves to share their ideas on how to improve our city. Please enjoy a highlight reel from the chat last night via Storify. We hope to see you at the next one.
