Andrea Learned writes that corporate #leaders and other influencers in the #climateaction space need to build #Twitter social capital for #mediarelations with major impact.
Get over your press release addiction and aim for building industry leadership social capital for the longterm. Andrea presents a call to action to disrupt your earned media approach today.
Andrea Learned educates #sustainability and #climateaction leaders on strategies for speaking or conference preparation. Leverage your presence for impact.

With that in mind, the data mapping team at Onalytica and I chose to study the power and potential of Twitter influencer engagement around the #Cities4Climate tag, specifically. Our goal: to discover the opportunities [...]
