Gloucestershire goes Twitter crazy

While
the SoGlos.com team first delved into the world of Twitter in 2008, we too were
left wondering ‘what exactly is the point?’ and ‘doesn’t Facebook already do
this?’ before being tempted to close the door on the Twittersphere forever.

The last few weeks, however, have seen the social networking cum micro-blogging
platform take Gloucestershire, the UK and indeed the world by storm – as
everyone clambers aboard to answer just ‘what are you doing?’.

You’ll usually find SoGlos.com’s journos glued to their desks writing
about glorious Gloucestershire, and the online magazine has already been
gathering some followers via http://twitter.com/soglos.
But it’s also great to see other early adopters from across the county –
including Gloucester City Council, Gloucestershire Tourism and The Cotswold Chef, for
example – joining in on the action.

We’re
waiting with anticipation to see which Gloucestershire individual, organisation
or business is going to start Twittering next.
