Chat apps and text messages are wonderful tools for starting a back-and-forth conversation with your audience. But as your audience grows into the thousands, how do you maintain the conversational back-and-forth that makes it valuable in the first place? We’ll use projects from Quartz, the Knight Lab and WNYC to share best practices for getting and keeping audiences engaged with human-powered chatbots.
