Please spill your tea via the form we have on our Spill page. You will find it below the guidelines for submissions. We prefer that all confessions be submitted via this form because it auto-fills into a spreadsheet that we use to log everything in an organized manner. The form is completely anonymous, and your contact information is not stored upon submission. You don't even need to be logged into a Google account to fill out the form. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tea is served in the order that it's spilled to us. It will appear on our Instagram first, then our Twitter a few weeks later, and finally our Facebook page a few weeks after Twitter. We receive anywhere between 3–10 submissions a day, so we appreciate everyone's patience as we make sure that everyone's tea gets served!
Absolutely! We just ask that you try to send each submission separately. It's easier for us to keep track of submissions that way. Thank you!
No, we do not. New tea is served Monday through Friday. The SMT team takes the weekend off in solidarity with our overworked peers and no tea is served on Saturdays or Sundays. Yes, we know we can schedule ahead (duh), but we'd rather not think about content management at all on Saturday and Sunday. We all deserve to routinely unplug and log off.
Kind of. New tea is served on our Instagram first. That tea will then appear on our Twitter a few weeks later and then again on our Facebook page a couple of weeks after Twitter. We try to keep our content staggered so different tea appears across our channels on a daily basis.
If a holiday happens to fall during the week, yes, we post on it. If it's on a Saturday or Sunday, we do not. In an effort to include all cultures and walks of life, we have chosen to remain neutral when it comes to holidays.
No, but only because we get asked to post job openings quite frequently and that's not the purpose of Social Media Tea. If you'd like to post a job opening or look for open positions, feel free to do so in our Facebook group, The Parlor.
Yes! We have an online shop where you can order colorful Social Media Tea merch that will help you show off your very online sense of humor.
The Tea team is made up of Alexa Heinrich and Austin Braun, both social media managers. You can learn more about them on our About page.
