Do you want to get involved with the People of Swindon project? We’re looking for all sorts of people to take over the Twitter account for a week and tell the world about life in Swindon.
There are some rules:
1. You must be willing to post at least twice a day, every day, for a week (running Mon-Sun). Obviously the more you tweet the better, as people will get to know you.
2. You must live, work or play in Swindon, and you must be in Swindon for the whole of the week you’re covering. We want to show the world Swindon, not the holiday you’re taking to Magaluf!
3. You must agree to play nice on the account. No spamming, fighting or being obscene. Strictly no being mean about groups of people, be that racism, sexism etc. Generally bear in mind that it’s a family friendly account, and we’re trying to engage people, not alienate them.
4. You must be an active Twitter user already, or be willing to take a (very short and informal) workshop on using Twitter. This is so that you’re good to go and can concentrate on what you’re tweeting, not how you’re tweeting, and we can check you don’t spend all your time trying to flog mcdonalds vouchers (i.e. you’re a real person, not a spambot!). If you don’t use Twitter now, don’t worry, it’s simple and we’ll happily show you.
If you’re interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, twitter ID, a brief reason why you want to be involved, and any dates you can’t do. We’ll then email you back!
