What Should We Do With Our Twitter?
The BBC's website has increasingly been using Twitter to help readers and viewers get involved in what we do.
It seems to be working -- so many people commented on the US election coverage last night that "BBC" registered as one Twitter's hot topics, alongside the likes of "Obama", "McCain" and "Palin".
The frequency of 'tweets' about the BBC far surpasses feedback on the Internet Blog. Using the pageflakes page, we try to keep on top of these discussions as best we can and sometimes showcase them on the blog.
A couple of days ago I reactivated our own Twitter account (@bbccouk). Hopefully the 105 of you that already follow it will have noticed updates giving notification of a new blog post.
However, we don't want to just use our Twitter feed as a means of telling you when there is a new post -- that's what our RSS feed is for.
We'd much rather use it for more useful purposes. Problem is, we're not entirely sure what those purposes should be.
How would you like the @bbccouk Twitter feed to operate? What would be useful to you? What would you absolutely not want us to do? Should we call it something else?
Any answers gratefully recieved.
