|LHSA on Twitter|
February 2012 saw the creation of a Twitter account to complement the three existing LHSA social media forums (a blog, Facebook and Flickr accounts). The format lends itself to quick updates, with a maximum of 140 characters, and has allowed us to open up our collections and services to an even wider online audience.
We’ve picked up over 180 followers in less than 10 months, and enjoyed making links with our users, other archives and libraries, history organisations and those who are just interested in what we have to say! Popular topics have included tweets about our volunteers and their work (also known as ‘Volunteerwatch’!), images of new accessions as they arrive , and of course the invalid fruit tart which trended on Twitter following its appearance on The Great British Bake Off!
