Three topics drove much of social media engagement in this quarter:

  • The announcement of WMDC board member Emily Temple-Wood's inclusion in the anthology The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2017.
  • The Women's Economic Empowerment Edit-a-thon in collaboration with the Embassy of Sweden. Engagement was driven by real-time tweets from the event, prominently featuring Ambassador Karin Olofsdotter, from WMDC and the Embassy, and a retweet from the Foundation's official account. A second burst of traffic was driven by a story about the event in The Lily, a female-oriented online publication of The Washington Post.
  • Wikidata, including the Wikidata Clinic at the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the publication of an episode of a Wikipedia Weekly podcast and a Foundation blog post featuring two WMDC members discussing the October WikidataCon in Berlin.
