The First World War Day-by-Day / La Premiere Guerre Mondial de Jour en Jour
Description: The First World War Day-by-Day/La Première Guerre mondiale de Jour en Jour project provides daily postings via a twitter account, @fcwm_amcg, hashtag: #daybyday1914_1918 and #jourenjour1914_1918 that provide an interesting fact or happening for each day of the First World War. The posts flow from Jean Morin’s meticulous research and provide day by day insights complete with references for further research. The account is steadily gaining followers and seems to appeal to our younger generation of new and prospective members. Recognizing that not all of us are in the twitter generation, the Team has created a website link that allows access to the “Day-by-Day” posts. To date the Day-by-Day account has over 566 tweets and acquired 507 Twitter followers as well as many more followers via the Friends’ website.
Cost (Annual/ Total): No identified financial costs
Volunteer Opportunities: Researchers and writers to scan Jean’s research to identify the right facts for daily posts, create the tweet and develop imagery links are required
