Using Witness Graphics to promote evidence sessions

We’re always looking for ways to spread the word about Committees’ evidence sessions. This is because they often contain the most interesting, important and dramatic moments of an inquiry.

Given that images can be processed 60,000 times faster than text, and that you can expect up to 4x as much engagement on a Tweet when it has an image attached, we have started using Witness Graphics to promote evidence sessions.

Holding the key players to account

When you see a recognisable face sat in the green committee chairs, you realise straight away that a key player is about to be scrutinised by a Select Committee. These graphics are there to help make it as easy as possible for people to spot the evidence sessions they're most interested in.

So far, they've been effective at getting the word out on Twitter.

Keep an eye out for these graphics in future - we'll be using them to make it even easier to keep track of key evidence sessions.

Update (09/06/2016):

One of our recent witness graphics was featured in the Guardian's live blog:
