It’s all in a day’s work – Todd Nash looks at 24 hours in the Shropshire Twitter community.
If New York is known as the city that never sleeps, then Twitter must be its online equivalent.
Whether it is night workers and insomniacs tweeting away in the small hours or the constant conversations of the day time, the Shropshire community is never silent on the social networking site.
Today, on the final day of our week celebrating the impact of Twitter, we give you a flavour of a typical day in the life of our tweeting county.
Last call for my date at the Lichfield Festival tomorrow evening at 8pm at The George Hotel, in conversation with Sue Beardsmore.Please RT
