Tweeting FTC Workshops

FTC staff live-tweets workshops, roundtables, and seminars hosted by the Commission. The FTC will announce a hashtag when it plans to live-tweet a workshop on Twitter, and through a press release or other FTC outreach.

Participants can watch live webcasts and follow the FTC’s Twitter account to submit questions to moderators and panelists online. The FTC will tweet highlights of the workshop, and occasionally retweet other comments about the event. Retweets do not equal endorsements. The goal is to share general information from the event as it happens. Comments are attributed to the individual panelists, moderators, and submitted questions. These tweets do not reflect the views of the Commission.
