5. Responsibilities, working of the board

6. Social media

I now successfully claimed both Twitter accounts (wohoo!) and have two things:

1) I discussed with the media dept. of the Czech Pirates and social media gurus on how to deal with them, because https://twitter.com/EuropeanPirates has been more used in tha past year, but has only 2 911 followers, whereas https://twitter.com/EUpirates has been quieter, but is followed by more than 10 400 people. They advised me to close the one with fewer followers with notifications month prior to it happening (writing on the smaller one several Tweets for example like “From 1st April” this account will be deleted and only XY will be used. Please follow us there, thank you.“) and I agree this seems like a logical solution.

2) I also thought of renaming the @EUpirates to @EuropeanPirates, once that is free, because of course we are not “EU” Pirates only :)), or to something completely new, like @EuropeanPirateParty.

https://twitter.com/PiratePartyEU
https://www.facebook.com/europeanpirateparty
https://www.facebook.com/EuropeanPirates/ - what to do? Ask the page who runs it or ignore it as it is not active since 2014?

Task: Markéta will contact the pages both on FB and Twitter.

Ernst: The renaming to EuropeanPirateParty would be the best name.
Okta: Why to have only one?
Discussion (recorded, will insert later).
Result: EUpirates will be the main one on which we focus now. Nothing will be closed. EUpirates shall be renamed to EuropeanPirateParty.

7. Any other business (AOB)

a) Declaration about future cooperation within the EP on the PPEU website.

Task: Could the board get clarity on who will make the first step and what are the details about the situation in the PPDE?

4. NEXT MEETING

Next meeting: Will be decided by Doodle.

Meeting closed at 21:47 CET by Markéta.
