WASHINGTON - What's the snow like where you are? We'd like to include what you're experiencing in WTOP's snow coverage.
Here's what to do:
- Download the free WTOP Glass-Enclosed Nerve App:
- Download the free Twitter mobile app and, if necessary, set-up an account. Make sure to follow @WTOP and your favorite WTOP reporters and anchors.
- Download the free Facebook mobile app. Make sure to Like WTOP Radio.
Here's how to help on Twitter:
Look out your window, and describe what you're seeing. Tweet it, including your general location and #WTOP in your under-140 character Twitter message.
That way, anyone using Twitter who searches #WTOP will find your helpful heads-up, and know what to expect if they'll be heading your way.
The WTOP newsroom also will be monitoring #WTOP, so your tweet can be integrated into WTOP's on-air and online coverage.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, snap one and include it in your tweet. Once you download your mobile Twitter app, you'll see how to easily attach a photo. And don't forget to use #WTOP in your tweet.
Here's how to be a part of our coverage on Facebook:
Launch the Facebook app on your phone, and search for the WTOP Radio page.
Under each story is a Comment option, click on that, and type in your observation or thoughts.
Take photos and upload them to your Instagram account. Put #WTOP in your caption.
You'll be able to upload your snow photos to WTOP's snow photo gallery.
If email is your only option:
You can send your information and pictures to email@example.com. The downside of that is it could take some time for us to post your photo to our website unlike with Twitter and Facebook, in which you're helping others real-time.
Thanks in advance for being part of WTOP's coverage.
