Social Media Tools: How do you use yours?

creme_3547027bI remember the creme egg advert do you? I’d always thought there was only one way, just one to eat a creme egg. Biting the top off and diving right into the contents, ending up in a gooey mess. The advert, if you remember, had vidoes of people attempting to eat their creme eggs in a variety of creative ways. There was more than one. Much more than one! One size really didn’t fit all.

Pretty much, as I’m discovering, like the social media tools we have around us. Many of these tools we are conditioned to use in a particular way. Maybe that’s done deliberately by the platform owners, maybe it’s just how it’s always been and the ‘way it’s done around here’.

The digital curation of #Tweepathon The Movie 2016

It’s a fairly long story. About 2-3 mins reading. Or you can skip straight to a pretty cool movie at the bottom of this page…..

Ok, so it’s not a real movie in the true sense of the word. But at around 4.30am Monday morning after a marathon of digital curation and video production it felt like that’s what we had all made. A piece of history. Something special and something certainly unique. Born out of the genius mind of Simon Heath, #tweepathon was a brilliant journey. Great people coming together to do great things for charity. You can read all about that here and make charitable donations as you wish.

Twitter Lists: A guided tour

It’s been a week since my new way of working with Twitter began. I’ve had a few questions here and there about how it all works. I’ve put together the video below that gives a sneak peak behind the scenes of what my new Twitter looks like.

I’m not for one minute suggesting everyone follows this exact same blueprint. The video does however give a useful introduction to get you thinking about how you could make Twitter lists work for you.
