Potteries Pop Songs on Twitter

I happen to know that Twitter hides topics after a while, so the following has been saved as a service to remember a fun game with very simple rules… [as the conversation also illustrates some useful Twitter rules for beginners, I’ve appended geeky explanations in square brackets]

@stokey_oatcake: #potteriespopsongs: Gene Pitney ‘Twenty four hours from Tunstall’ [note the simplicity of this opening gambit from @stokey_oatcake. No introductions, no long and laborious rules. # creates a ‘hashtag’, which in some viewers lets you click on a link to see all the posts with that tag]

@FunkydoryStokie: @stokey_oatcake #potteriespopsongs Madonna – La Isla Bentilee

@stokey_oatcake: RT @FunkydoryStokie @stokey_oatcake #potteriespopsongs Madonna – La Isla Bentilee [Glossary: RT – retweet / repost / expression of admiration; ‘@’ – a public message to someone and will show up in the receipent’s feed]

@LeighPreece: @stokey_oatcake #potteriespopsongs I only have Wrights Pies for you. (?) [for those who are interested, hastags are a type of ‘metadata‘, in which users create meaning and context within their content, making it easily accessible to a much wider audience than just their own communities. OK, I’ll stop now]
