Tell Me More: Crowdsourcing Questions for 'Day in the Life' Twitter Series

Play associated audio

What does a typical, or not so typical day consist of in the tech world? From December 2-20, African-American entrepreneurs and techies from across the country will use #NPRBlacksinTech on Twitter while participating in "A Day in the Life," a special social media series that follows tech heavyweights and rising stars through the course of one day.

We are asking you to help us identify the 5 questions we'll pose to them on Twitter as part of "A Day in the Life." This is a chance to help shape the conversations and answer any burning questions you may have about working in the tech and entrepreneur sectors.

"'A Day in the Life' allows us to experience, in real time, the imprint that African-Americans are making on our country's STEM engine," says Tell Me More host Michel Martin. "The series throws open the door to the worlds of these highly important, but largely invisible, individuals. And the engagement we're already generating with #NPRBlacksinTech demonstrates this incredible appetite for knowledge about the lives of African-Americans who are on the cutting edge of innovation."

Share your questions on Twitter @TellMeMoreNPR using the hashtag #NPRBlacksinTech or email them to tellmemore@npr.org.

Tell Me More is an innovator in creating compelling cross-platform segments with a dynamic digital footprint, featured in live Twitter chats that brought together thousands of participants across the country.
