Conversation on Twitter recently turned to the fact that Twitter might be seen as exclusive and that many local gov (Here at LGC we keep a keen eye on the number of council chiefs, and though the number is growing it is still very small). This is rather sad because Twitter is a platform for stimulating discussion and ideas…
In one such stimulating discussion, myself and some helpful local gov bods hit upon the idea of creating a crowd sourced guide to demystify and inspire more local gov people to Tweet.
I have set up a Google Docs page to do just that. I have added some provisional heading ideas. I think we need to include benefits, examples of what has been achieved through Twitter, and a section that helps to explain some of the potentially scary jargon - hashtags, #ff, RT etc - that may well stop people from taking part. I’ll find a home for our finished masterpiece on LGCplus.com.
I would be most grateful if you could join in and add your thoughts. You can take part without needing to sign up and if you wish to comment rather than make a change, just use the “comment” option in the “Insert” menu above.
