What is Army of Awesome?
It is a way to reach Firefox users on social media and guide them to the right places on the Mozilla support platform. Basically, we are responding to users’ questions on Twitter – then we guide them towards SUMO or Mozilla support page. As there already are predefined answers, it is easier.
How to be efficient?
1. Focus on people who need help or have questions
2. Customize each answer, make sure each tweet is unique
3. Delete tweets that are not related to Firefox or that do not need an answer
4. Follow up the answers. The user might still need some help.
A tweet can brighten up a day, so don’t hesitate to join our Army of Awesome!
