Twitter Chase: Taking Social Media to the streets!
4 teams, 3 hours, 22 people, 51640 steps and over a 100 services visited.
Students from Liverpool John Moores, Hope and Edge Hill University came together in teams to see who could visit the most number of activities and services from the LiveWell Liverpool health directory over a 4 hour period, tweeting s they went along.
The event was organised in with Healthwatch Liverpool and aimed to find out more about community activities available in the city. Everyone taking part in the event was promoting LiveWell Liverpool – a health directory with information about activities and services in Liverpool and services provided by Mi. The staff, students and service users used Twitter to shout about activities they came across in the different areas of Liverpool. The four teams covered either Toxteth, Norris Green, Dovecot and Speke- and it was a great opportunity for these students to discover a new part of the city they might not be familiar with/
The Twitter Chase was a big success and has caught an attention of other organisations who would like to get involved in future events. The next Twitter Chase will happen at some point in June so get in touch if you’re interested in being involved!’ Karol, The Mi Team
