As the stage is set for this moment in American history, there’s much work being done to tap into the passion of the country via social media –to make it a ‘for the people, by the people’ event.
Here are a few ways to join the conversation:
- The New York Times is accepting photos that get published here. Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
- National Public Radio has Twitter two tags if you feel inclined to tweet. Send them to #inaug09 or #dctrip09.
- Flickr: NPR is also using the same tags, inaug09 or dctrip09, for those wishing to upload pictures to Flickr
- Text in news to NPR: Send it to short code 66937 (begin your message with #inaug09 or #dctrip09)
- CurrentTV will blend Twitter comments with the telecast. When you tweet, add #current to your comments and it might get featured.
- Citizen’s Briefing Book: This is a neat project I wrote about earlier
- Live Blog by Sam Teller
- You could be an iReporter on CNN-iReport and send in a reports during the day
PBS is asking for people to call a toll-free number via Gabcast and record an audio segment.
