Thanks @DetentionWatch for the shoutout!

February 1, 2012

From Detention Watch Network’s January 31, 2012 e-newsletter:

On behalf of DWN members and staff, I cannot begin to find the words to express our thanks and gratitude for all the hours, energy and creativity that our own DWN member Will Coley has graciously contributed to get DWN online and out into the social media world.
Will singlehandedly launched DWN into the 20th century by setting up our My Space page (remember My Space?) and after that he introduced us to the 21st century with a Facebook page, Twitter account (yes, DWN tweets #DWN) and the DWN blog.  We even have a YouTube channel for all the great videos our members (and Will) have created.
Through Will’s persistence and media savvy, DWN now has over 4,000 on Twitter, 2704 active fans on Facebook, and DWN’s blog is viewed on average 112 times per day or roughly 3,000 times per month.
While continuing on as a DWN member, Will is stepping down from his uber-volunteer role to devote more time to his thriving media consulting business.  I am sure we have not heard the last from Will or his late night emails about the next “new thing” in social media.
Will, thank you for keeping us connected and expanding our outreach to members and supporters in our collective efforts to fundamentally transform the immigration detention and deportation system.
Andrea Black
Executive Director, DWN
