On Friday, May 1st, everywhere around the world join others and tweet your Postal/Zip Code! Let's call it #LocalDay

Pledge Now

Take the #LocalDay Pledge Now to Spread the Word, by Tweeting:

Details

Hey, want to connect with your local neighbors online? Perhaps ...

  • Say hello to those in your community
  • Exchange a few notes on local issues
  • Organize a flash BBQ
  • Meet other parents and kids for playtime at a local park, etc.
  • Just don't meet anyone in a dark place or do anything stupid

How?

  • Simply, put #YOURPOSTALCODE (no spaces) in a Twitter post on Friday, May 1 to say hello
  • For example, #55406 is where I live.
  • Then by searching #55406 at http://search.twitter.com I can watch others say hello. Search for #YOURPOSTALCODE instead.
  • This is similar to the #Flood09 "hashtag" without the national emergency.
  • Also add #LOCALDAY to at least your first post to build momentum


This idea was inspired by the Minnesota Voices Online Unconference. If this interests you, so should also check out LocalTweeps.

Finally, while short form Tweets are fun, if you'd like to build local public life online, check out E-Democracy.Org's Community/Neighborhood Issues Forum efforts, our free webinar on local citizen media or our links on social media in local public life.
