110th Session of the International Labour Conference (2022)

General guidelines for participants using social media

During the 110th Session of the International Labour Conference, the ILO will tweet in English from @ILO, in French from @OITinfo, and in Spanish from @OITNoticias.

The official hashtag for this year's International Labour Conference is:
  • #ILC2022 (English)
  • #CIT2022 (French)
  • #CIT2022 (Spanish)
Delegates who wish to share their thoughts and experiences about the Conference on Twitter and other social media should do so using the hashtags hereabove in their respective language.

In some committees, the Chairperson may ask delegates to refrain from sharing updates about the discussions on social media or from quoting other delegates directly. Before sharing posts about committee meetings, delegates should ensure they understand any instructions regarding social media that committee chairpersons have provided.

A few suggestions

If you use your personal Twitter account
  • Ensure that the information you are about to share on social media can be made public.
  • Ensure all tweets contain hashtag for the language you are tweeting in and, when possible, direct tweets to @ILO, @OITInfo or @OITNoticias.
  • Focus on content that will contribute to a conversation and avoid general statements.
Getting ready
  • Before the event, it is helpful to announce your participation at the Conference – for example: “Getting ready for the start of the #ILC2022 with @ILO”. Alternatively, if you know which session you will be attending, you can provide the specific name.
  • If you know names of speakers/panellists, it is beneficial to check if they are on Twitter and keep their usernames handy. For instance: “Getting ready to hear ILO’s DG @GuyRyder speak at #ILC2022”.
  • You can search tweets including #ILC2022 to see what others are saying prior to the event, and to get a better idea of who is attending and to even engage in conversations.

Tweeting “live” from the Conference

Make sure the session is open to the public before tweeting on proceedings.
Be selective; don’t overload your followers with a commentary on the session.
If someone says something interesting, share with your followers, but quote accurately and cite your sources. Again, check the hashtag #ILC2022 at the event to see what others are saying. This is also a good way to connect in “real life”.

  • If you choose to tweet after the event, ensure tweets are in past tense.
  • Offer a reflection of your day, what you learned, and what you thought was most interesting.
