Twitter through Brussels Trip
Posted on October 26, 2010 (De Standaard)
“On wednesday october 27, 2010Saskia Videler brings a visit to Brussels. Nothing special really, were it not guided by Videler tips they get from users of the social networking site Twitter.
Videler will visit the city on Wednesday only visiting sites recommended by its users from Twitter. […]
Throughout the day Videler will tweet about her location and the things she visits. Twitter users can send her some extra tips about restaurants, museums and shops in the area.
Who wants to follow the adventures of Videler, can visit the Twitter account of Saskia Videler. Who wants to send in tips, the # hashtag twussel use.”
Today (November 6, 2010) the Twussel of Brussels was published in De Standaard. Interesting to read how she got a realy personel visit of Brussels, visited sites new to her (and me), found athenticity, … and figured out that the Brussels is a realy warm Twitter community.
It’s a different way of traveling or visiting a place, city or country! A beautiful way on how the network and social media society (web 2.0 – web 3.0) are forming a world 2.0 – 3.0. I believe this is an example on how the new social interaction takes place in the new 2.0 era. Although we don’t know each other, we interconnect with one another through different social media.
If you are a ducth native speaker you can read the blog of Sakia at http://www.saskiablogt.be/ and discover the Twussel visit.
