Campaign Events


The Thunderclap service is no longer is operational so we cannot use the tool this year. Instead of completing the Thunderclap campaign event, ambassadors must RT the kick off a spring break (March 20, 2019) and summer (June 21, 2019) messages that will be posted by @YourVibeVA. Ambassadors are asked to encourage their friends to RT too.

#VibeVAChat Twitter Chats

Twitter chats happen when a group of people all tweet about a topic using a specific hashtag.  Five Twitter chats were held during the campaign using the hashtag #VibeVAChat. Three ambassadors will be selected as chat leaders to post preapproved questions to the group.

Two Twitter chats are planned:

April 4, 2019, 8 p.m. – prom theme (during session 2)
  • Q1: What are you looking forward to most about prom? 🌜✨🕺💃🎼 #VibeVAChat
