On 8th July 2010, after an hour long chat with my friend and business partner @james_brooks – the @socialpurley twitter account was launched.
A community dedicated to the promotion and communication of businesses, brands and people in and around #Purley.
If you do not know already, the Purley 2.0 Project is a movement of local Twitter users to make Purley more social-media friendly. For more information, please go here.
@socialpurley will ideally become the handle through which everything Purley-related is broadcast on Twitter and should (in the fullness of time) help raise the profile of the #purley hashtag.
Our first tweet was the classic digital mating-call of the internet start-up:
Needless to say, we are VERY excited about where this could go…
