Are you following me on Twitter?
Essentially, I use three key channels to reach my police and public sector audience.
The blog, for those longer pieces that require a view or a bit more thought. This is emailed to those people, like you, who subscribe.
The ‘interesting things’ section of the www.openeyecommunications.com website. This is regularly updated with things that catch my eye, but that I don’t want to write a longer blog piece about. This is not emailed out. It’s regularly updated, but you have to visit the site to see the items (go and bookmark the page now!).
Twitter, for those shorter, more immediate items, that I think will add value to the people who ‘follow’ me and want to stay in touch with what’s happening in policing and the public sector.
Increasingly I am also using twitter to replace texting. As more and more friends and colleagues sign up to twitter, it’s becoming easier to direct message them on twitter than to email or text. This allows me to arrange meetups, offer advice and stay in touch easily and for free!
If you had been following me on twitter (twitter.com/openeyecomms) you would have seen these (and many more) items over the last week:
