Curate more #ILoveWP posts on WP.org testimonials webpage

Description

Currently, there is only one curated post on the WordPress.org testimonials webpage (https://wordpress.org/about/testimonials/) and the links on that page to view tweets with the #ILoveWP hashtag show quite a few unrelated and otherwise not salient posts.

Possible solution: Use a Twitter collection to curate specific #ILoveWP posts and embed it on the testimonials webpage (https://developer.twitter.com/en/docs/twitter-api/v1/tweets/curate-a-collection/overview). If some curated testimonials are not tweets, perhaps a couple of curation mechanisms could be combined on the page to bring in multiple testimonials.

I made an example collection with just a couple of curated tweets to show how one might be made. The code to embed that collection follows:

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="https://twitter.com/xolotl/timelines/1465721910910537731?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ILoveWP - Curated tweets by xolotl</a> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

Thanks for sharing this ticket on the marketing slack @Nate Angell.

There was a folder and a card on this in marketing. I will see if I can find it later in the week to see what the discussion was on this.

From memory and the documentation/ notes I can find quickly, there was some work done on:

  • identifying audiences/ stories/ campaigns and creating little stories for this hashtag
  • the work on it was to go on hold until the completion of the more detailed personas and the showcase update, so that it could all work together. The first priority was to update the Showcase
  • some discussion on a similar campaign and whether this would clash or could co-operate / cross-promote with it
  • some work had been done on identifying what would be a Contributor Story, Showcase, or LoveWP, and how this would be different from these series/ campaigns and from People of WordPress
  • discussion on how it could be done/ recorded at WordCamps and Contributor Events, and work alongside the interview series

UPDATE: Marketing GitHub [card]https://github.com/wpmarketingteam/Marcomms-Series/issues/39 to bring all the different items together and to check-in with Collieth's team on any campaigns they may be working on involving this. Card will be allocated to the relevant board once this has been completed.
