Where can I post tweets

Outside of GD, LBN or Editorial. I thought multimedia meant I can post them there?

1. did you have a post locked?

I would think that forum would be fine, but why not GD? I think more people would see in there.

2. The only posts I have locked are self deletes

I have LBN trashed because of a lot of rules so I go to Twitter for news. I also have GD trashed because of too many assholes so I like quieter forums. I just want to make sure Tweets are appropriate for V&M.

4. I think they're perfectly appropriate for Video and Multimedia

Sometimes Tweets include video and they're definitely media.

6. Here's the SoP for the Video & Multimedia Forum:

Post videos, images, or any other multimedia content about politics, issues, and current events. No posts about Israel/Palestine, religion, guns, showbiz, or sports unless there is really big news. No conspiracy theories. No whining about DU.

When we first moved to DU.3 we had separate hosts for each forum and V&M was one of the first I signed up for, it's a favorite of mine. Anything that's mostly photos or videos belongs in V&M - the main stipulation is that it's political. If it's an editorial or news item, it belongs in one of the other forums and if it's a non-political video - like a music video - that's better suited for The Lounge. That's my take on it anyway.

8. We see lots of Tweets in V&M

As long as they're political, I don't see a problem...
