Smoosier, Ron Gifford
, in his role as President of Indy Partnership
will be traveling with Gov Daniels to China this week.
Ron is a Twitter newbie, but he has agreed to attempt to Tweet and send photos throughout his tour. I suggested to him that the entire Indiana entourage (including the Gov who has a Twitter account) use a common hashtag (e.g. #inchina) so that we can follow along with all their Tweets in one place. (I will post Ron's @handle ASAP).
Meanwhile, does anyone have any suggestions to make this exercise more meaningful?
The group departs Indy on Saturday. I am open to suggestions around content, or Twitter tips, or whatever you think would make sense. Imagine...our Governor and a delegation of folks from Indiana are touring China...and we can interact with them in real time as they go...how can we make the most of this opportunity?
On a connected note, Ron posted a forum thread recently asking if any Smoosiers have contact in s China (Read the thread here
). That forum has produced fruit...Ron has a couple meetings lined up with Chinese contacts he made through Smaller Indiana!
