The Local has launched a new concept on Twitter — The Newsblip, or as we like to call it #NEWSBLIP.
Here, our Twitter followers (Tweeps? Twollowers?) can enjoy even more Swedish news with some of those smaller nuggets making their way to your Twitter feed in 140 characters or less.
Here was our first ever blip, from Thursday July 12th:
- #NEWSBLIP: Östersund man found 6 billion SEK in his bank account on Wednesday: “I almost fainted!” Cash vanished 2 hrs later. Bank baffled.
The idea is also for additional reader interaction so we can what YOU want to read more about.
This Blip from Friday prompted a buzzing Twitter interaction (Twinteraction?) and a flurry of reader photos, resulting in a full story with more information shortly after, including a gallery of photos:
- #NEWSBLIP: An enormous swarm of bees terrorized central Stockholm this afternoon. Who said Friday 13th was nothing to worry about?
So, be sure to follow us on Twitter @thelocalsweden for more Twitter Blips!
Keeping you in the loop,
The Local team.
