Is your multifamily organization on Twitter? You should be! Twitter is an excellent way to connect directly with other multifamily professionals. While it may seem overwhelming to find others in the multifamily industry at first, we encourage you to make full use of hashtags (“#” symbols) in your search for connections.
If your multifamily organization writes weekly blog posts or has an industry question you’d like feedback on, send out a tweet that includes “#multifamily” to ensure that other multifamily professionals see your story. You can also click directly on hashtag words to find out who else is tweeting about the same subject.
We also recommend that multifamily professionals check out Apartment Chat discussions on twitter. These discussions occur weekly on Fridays at 4pm EST and can be found by searching for the #aptchat hashtag. Including this hashtag in your tweets is all it takes for you to become a part of the conversation. Past Apartment Chat topics have ranged from resident retention to measuring marketing efforts to troubleshooting leasing issues.
