Here’s the link you need. New #VisitNorwich #VisitNorfolk #PaperLi
Dear #NaNTwiNk members and other twitter followers
Not sure why it’s taken me so long (old, slow, busy – take your pick) but I have finally figured out a way to collate many of the wonderful tweets promoting events in Norfolk and Norwich: by setting up a PaperLi. You can see an example by following the link from this blog. The PaperLi system will automatically post updates each evening at 19:00 but you are free to share it with your followers at any time.
Hopefully, you will find it a useful way of keeping up with some of the many events taking place in your community. At the same time, I hope it will encourage more people to visit our fine county and city – which should help give the local economy a boost. But it will only work if you add the right hashtag to your tweets when you post a link to an event.
Here’s why: PaperLi (the free version – I don’t have a budget for Pro, or anything else for that matter) lets you select 25 search terms. So I have selected terms such as #VisitNorwich, #VisitNorfolk, #NorwichLanes, #Norwich + #Art, #Norwich + #Music, #Norwich + #Events. If you post a link on twitter and include one of those hashtag combinations, my PaperLi should pick it up for inclusion in the next edition.
Obviously such an automated system, based on hashtags, is open to hi-jacking. So I will be monitoring the stories it picks up and blocking spammers. However, since most of you are decent people, I doubt there will be many who try to take advantage of this free service.
Happy if you want to leave a comment.
