Today the social network Twitter has launched a blog dedicated to all-things Twitter in the UK.
Twitter has been making way into the UK and Europe over the past six months, with its first Europe-based employee announced back in May, and UK-specific promoted trends, tweets and accounts .
“From chefs to designers, from museums to the Downing Street Cat, there are more than 100 million people around the world using Twitter to follow their interests and instantly share ideas and information. To kick off our UK blog, we want to highlight a few of our favourites here at home.”
It will be tying in Twitter with key events, and demonstrating how it can be used to follow people from across different disciplines. This is all part of Twitter’s drive to open up the microblog and make it relevant to everyone.
“All of the UK police forces are on Twitter, including @metpoliceUK in London, @GMpolice in Manchester, @HantsPolice in Hampshire and @WMpolice in the West Midlands.”
We’ll start to see a big push from Twitter in the coming months, as it attempts to open up to more users, and it’s compiling lists that focus on different interest areas, much in the same way as it has done on its main Twitter blog.
