The Tweet That Netted Two Pounds

Well Done  – Leicestershire Museums and Libraries

I’m a great fan of the work that Leicestershire Museums and Libraries (2 different services I think) are doing with social media.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, there was an announcement on Friday from a government bod that he was going to tear down various public sector websites because of the cost.

Leicestershire Libraries and Museums (notice I changed the order there – just in case :)) have also started to work twitter pretty well.  Today I followed the tweet above out of curiosity and it was exactly the subject I have a real interest in.

There was a nominal admission charge of £2 – so that tweet clearly worked.

Please don’t read this as a flippant comment – it does show that there are real opportunities for public sector bodies to make systematic, regular use of social media.
