    More publicity thanks to the Party's Twitter account.  Now 22.1k followers!  Food for thought on resources? Perhaps some support from the EC? http://www.nationalreview.com/g-file/452410/new-york-times-communism-series-red-century-lies-about-socialism

    Tell the EC specifically what you have in mind.  I know I've asked this before but we've been snowed under recently with having to deal with more pressing and mundane matters.  Yesterday's meeting being a case in point.

    Do I really need to?         As the EC pointed out in September, It is not within the  remit of the Audio Visual Committee: It would come under remit of  the Internet Committee. Once again shooting itself in the foot IMHO. So there is little point in me asking the EC about IC business. Digital communications reach more workers- a lot more – than other methods of communication and I have not been reticent on this matter:  It's not my fault no one listens. Oh forgot to mention: I suggested the @officialSPGB Twitter account be 'promoted' which will require a grant to those running the account

    That ruling related to the uploading of material to various sites.  Anyone is free to come forward with constructive recommendations relating to the promotion of that material and any other content.

     “If the party’s terms of reference are referenced, the management of the social media accounts, including YouTube is the remit of the Internet Committee and that committee only.September ECI think the resolution is pretty clear.

    The management, yes, but the EC will sympathetically consider any concrete suggestions made which will promote our presence on social media sites and elsewhere.

    Hello all!January 1st seems like a good time to change the pinned tweet on the SPGB Twitter account to one which points out what socialism is, and asks people to ‘like’ the tweet if it is something they would prefer to have. It is hoped that, over time, a sizeable number of likes will be achieved, which can then result in some media interest, one way or another.This graphic will be accompanied by the following three tweets:We want to know how many people aware of our account, or who chance upon it, would like genuine socialism (see graphic for explanation). If you would prefer to live and work in this new society, rather than continue living under capitalism, please like (and RT) this pinned tweet. 1/3Socialism can’t be achieved until a clear majority of people know what it is, and want this alternative to capitalism. Although we are only a small political party in Britain, the number of people liking the pinned tweet will provide some useful data about socialism’s popularity. 2/3Due to decades of anti-socialist propaganda by newspapers etc, there’ll be the usual replies mentioning Venezuela, Cuba, Soviet Union, N. Korea etc; or insisting that socialism is impossible due to “human nature” etc. We ask these people to see our website http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/questions-and-answers-about-socialism 3/3

    Some of our tweets about Trump Jr were picked up by the Independent Journal Review, and a piece about them can be found here: https://ijr.com/the-declaration/2018/02/1065569-donald-trump-jr-tweeted-that-his-wife-and-family-are-safe-and-the-socialist-party-wasnt-having-it/This was on the Donald Trump 'News Now' feed, which collects news stories about him.

     "After Trump Jr. announced on Twitter that “Vanessa & my children are safe and unharmed after the incredibly scary situation that occurred this morning,” the Socialist Party of Great Britain also seemingly condoned the attack, posting, “Disgusting people attract disgusting behavior.” Not quite sure how calling such behaviour "disgusting" is "condoning" it.   This sounds like a cover up for a cocaine deal that had been rumbled as some commentators have suggested
