Here in the states, it’s election day today. And in case you missed it, there are two very different candidates waiting for your votes today (there’s more, but sadly only two of the parties get any consideration). After you’ve got your vote in, we have some great news for those of you holding election day parties and events—templates!
We’ve noticed a huge uptick in people creating election day Tweetwalls, and we thought, “hey, what a great idea!” To make things better, and your election day events event more awesome, we’ve created 3 different templates you can use for your election day event. They are completely free for any Tweetwall (The Tweetwall is still paid, sorry).
The three templates are for Democrat-leaning events, Republican-leaning events, and neutral events. And here they are:
Democrat Party Focused
Republican Party Focused
Party Neutral Focused
As we said above, these templates are free! Here’s how to use them:
- Create your Tweetwall at tweetwall.com, like you normally would. You can use any hashtag you’d like, but keep in mind some of them are going to be really flying… we highly recommend you block retweets, and enable a follower count filter of at least 5,000 if you plan on following any of the worldwide trending hashtags.
- After you’ve built your Tweetwall, click the button to open the Tweetwall from your dashboard. You’re going to modify the URL to have
?template=dems16if you want the Democrat design,
?template=gops16if you want the Republican design, or
?template=vote16if you want the party neutral design.
- That’s it! Your Tweetwall will look like one of the above and the hashtag will change to be whatever your primary hashtag is.
We hope you use these templates to make your election day event a success, but most of all, if you live in the United States, we hope you’ll get out and vote and bring along anyone you know that still hasn’t voted!
