Each Tuesday on Twitter
Each week on Tuesday at 19:30 we hold an hour on Twitter dedicated to all things SE16. It is an informal way to make and keep friends in the area and to find out what’s going on locally. We encourage as many people as can to drop in during the hour. We get offers from local businesses, news of forthcoming events, updates on news stories and local hints and tips. We often run a photo competition inviting guesses as to where the SE16 photo was taken.
Making a Start
Joining in takes three steps:
- Get an account on Twitter, either for yourself or your organisation / firm; get up and running and learn how to be profound in 140 characters!
- Search at any time for [hashtag] #SE16Hour and the whole conversation will be shown in the order tweets were sent; you can take a look at what was said last time
- During the SE16 Hour itself, join in by asking a question or responding to another tweet but always include the [hashtag] #SE16Hour.
The key thing to always to include the hashtag #SE16Hour so that your message can be found amongst the millions that are sent each minute. Remember that’s hashtag SE16Hour NOT @SE16Hour which is our handle on Twitter. You can always send the tweet again with the hashtag so that everyone in the Hour can see what you have written.
We normally offer a host for the Hour and all they do is to open and close the Hour, encourage participation, keep time and support newcomers to feel at home. If you would like to have a go at hosting a SE16Hour, please let us know – during the Hour or by Twitter to @SE16Hour.
Hoping you enjoy the Hour this week!
