Result The event was a huge success in terms of grassroots turnout, earned media and social media penetration. Campaign sparked awareness and led to grassroots mobilization around the smoke free legislation that is to be taken up this year in Parliament. The rally generated so much momentum that it was a trending topic on Twitter (one of the most popular topics nationwide on the social network). Was the number one hashtag trending in Uganda that day was #tobaccokillsUG. An analysis of the data shows that Twitter messages related to the event were reposted over 480 times and seen over 200,905 times overall Balance of Tactics: this is a great example of a nicely balanced tactical approach that combines online and offline activities that can feed off each other, the rally was amplified by the social media components and vice versa. Online Echo chamber: aggressively promoting the campaign activities on Twitter helped the launch messages to reach an audience of over 44,000 users, who heard about the campaign an average of 4-5 times each, all from someone in their social network Grasstops Access Online: a huge win for the launch is that the Prime Minister, who has an active Twitter account, has started following the campaign on Twitter. This is a great example of how Twitter can provide direct access and interaction with grasstops and key decision-makers Measurement: one area were excited to further develop is goal setting and tracking of key metrics. While the exposure of the campaign was great, we dont have a benchmark of success or any preset goals to compare performance to objectively.
