With this powerful media footprint across digital, print, video, and live events, Ben Shapiro has established himself as a leading voice for millennial conservatives. He commands a massive, engaged audience across platforms. So how can you actually contact someone of his stature? Here are the most effective approaches:

All of Shapiro‘s official social media profiles have open messaging enabled, allowing followers to send him a direct message anytime. He‘s most active on Twitter, but also has official Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Twitter – With over 4 million followers, this the best social platform to reach Shapiro. You can tweet at his handle @benshapiro to try getting attention publicly, or use Twitter‘s direct messaging feature.

Facebook – Shapiro has over 3 million Facebook followers. You can send private messages to his verified profile @officialbenshapiro.

Instagram – Shapiro‘s Instagram (@officialbenshapiro) has 1.4 million followers. Use Instagram Direct to send him private messages.

When trying to contact Shapiro via social media, here are some proven tips:

  • Craft thoughtful, respectful messages – Don‘t rant or troll. Thought-provoking questions or insightful political points get the most attention.

  • Keep it concise – Short, compelling messages around 100-200 characters have the best odds of being read amongst his high volume of mentions.

  • Respond to his posts – Commenting your question on his posts with notifications on helps increase visibility vs. isolated DMs.

  • Follow and turn notifications on – This makes you more visible as a follower.

  • Persist respectfully – It may take multiple attempts over weeks/months to get a response.

While Shapiro surely gets a tidal wave of tweets/messages, social media still provides your best shot at contacting him directly. With smart messaging and persistence, you can break through the noise.

Ben Shapiro‘s official business email for The Daily Wire is [email protected]. He‘s shared this publicly on Twitter before, inviting people to reach out.

Though he must receive endless emails daily, a compelling message has a chance of getting through if you follow some best practices:

  • Keep it concise and catchy – Get to your main point within the first 1-2 sentences. Avoid long-winded pitches.

  • Put the key question/idea in the subject line – This helps your email stand out among the masses.

  • Avoid overly familiar language – Use a polite tone as you would with any major public figure.

  • Send from a professional email address – This signals you are serious. Avoid informal addresses.

I once connected with Shapiro by emailing a thoughtful critique of an article he had written. It took a couple tries over several weeks, but he did respond thoughtfully. With persistence and compelling content, his direct email access provides another potential avenue.
