Railroad Day Social Media

Join the #RailDay2019 social conversation
One of our goals for Railroad Day on Capitol Hill is to raise awareness of our industry and spread the word about the public benefits of freight rail. In addition to meeting with congressional offices and educating Members and staff, we need to get the social conversation going to reach an even wider audience. 
Twitter is ‘Mainstream’ On Capitol Hill
Twitter is a platform for creating change. In a poll by the Congressional Management Foundation, 70% of congressional offices said that social media makes them more accountable to constituents.
71% of congressional offices said multiple messages by different constituents affiliated with a specific group or cause would have “some” or “a lot” of influence on an undecided lawmaker. A tweet from a constituent can have the same impact as an email, letter, fax or phone call. 

YOU CAN HELP, even if you are not here on Capitol Hill with us!
               

 

  • In 2018, more Members of Congress interacted than ever before. Eight sent their own tweets acknowledging meetings or #RailDay2018.
  • At least 10 more members liked or retweeted messages. #RailDay2018 hashtag trended briefly in DC. There were over 701 posts using the hashtag, with a potential reach of nearly 2 million!

We encourage you to sign up for Twitter and be prepared to join the social conversation on May 8, 2019.
