Conflux Community Twitter

Funding Tier:
• Tier 1, 1.5k-2k

Project Overview:
• Name: Conflux Community Twitter

How will this project be integrated into Conflux?
• This project will be an integrated information source of Conflux facing towards community audience. The purpose of this Twitter is an aggregator of all news and updates of Conflux from a community standpoint and blockchain knowledge and news.

Why is your team interested in creating this project?
• As conflux community members, we realized there is not a channel to release Conflux-related news and updates in a community perspective, similar to the BSC.news and Solana news.
• Through the grants program, we aim to increase the number of followers of this account to over 5000 at least to expand Conflux’s name and awareness and empower the ecosystem.

Project Details:
High-level technical approach, product flow & architecture (along with a diagram)

  • Since it’ a Twitter account, we do not have a high-level approach, so under this section, we will provide the Twitter campaign plan that we want to apply for.

Ecosystem fit: How can the project benefit Conflux Network’s ecosystem?
• This project will help engage the Conflux community, providing an unofficial channel for Conflux to communicate directly with the community members, and deliver the messages that might not be appropriate to be delivered through the official channel
• Moreover, this channel could help spread conflux’s awareness from a community perspective, engage more people to discuss a variety of topics including but not limited to Conflux.
• Once the awareness increases, Conflux’s advantages could be spread more easily, and therefore we can attract not only more users but also more projects to deploy on Conflux and empower the ecosystem.

Conflux twitter is currently not popular and a campaign would be cool but I have my reservation in terms of running something like this.
eg
1, You could end up buying a bunch of fake/bot followers and not have that organic growth
2, How sure or what is the metric to know you will get the numbers of follows as you stated in the milestone.
3, “We’ve been running this Twitter account for over 2 months, with 45 followers and about a 2% engagement rate.”
But you will be able to get 1000 followers in one month.

It will be cool to also get more info about the people behind this than just names without a link to a social or github profile.

I have the same concerns as @flarcos .

Generally I’m not sure how you plan on attaining this level of growth based on your current amount of followers unless you buy them (bots or zombies) or use the money for a real marketing team (which I’m not sure would make this a valid use of grant money).
I don’t really see any team information it seems kind of anonymous.

How are you going to be able to track real organic growth?

I really see the grant process as a way to promote development but i dont see any of that in this grant.
