Whilst off school recovering from a headache-y, nausea bug, I noticed a tweet from Tom Barrett about an event with northantsblt.
This event was hashtagged (meaning it was easy to find all the tweets in one place) #northantsblt. I used hootsuite to open up a stream for that hashtag and then dipped into the tweets from under my blanket during the day.
I found it a really good read and wanted to keep some of the tweets for further reading and reference.
I remembered storify. I’ve only really dabbled with that piece of software, but I have selected many of the tweets from the day and published them in a storify document, which I have then embedded below.
A simple and good use of blanket time I felt…and even better than Jeremy Kyle Under the Hammer!
