On any given day that ends in a 5 you can find one, or more, of our members participating in SNAP Roundtable’s “Archives on the Fives.” You can typically find them nestled at home, taking break from homework, or even somewhere else in the country. Our chapter had a thought: if enough of our members are participating, why not host a place for everyone to do so together. That’s how Tweets and Eats was born!
On March 25, 2015, members of the chapter gathered to participate in SNAP Roundtable’s Twitter chat. The event was opened to members of the UMSI community, whether or not they had a Twitter account. Using the chapter’s Twitter account everyone’s answers were curated together and shared using #snaprt. Some members followed along with their own accounts in the room.
Overall the event was a success. The chapter garnered a few favorites and retweets. We were even able to chat with a UMSI alum! Follow us at @mich_archives to see us in action at a future Tweets and Eats!
