Purley 2.0 – @socialpurley is launched!

On 8th July 2010, after an hour long chat with my friend and business partner @james_brooks – the @socialpurley twitter account was launched.

The aim of the group is nothing more complicated than what it says in the bio:

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.

So far Purley 2.0 and @socialpurley have received considerable interest from various individuals. Special thanks go out to @maudealleyne, @stephenhendry, @johnnylaird, @neilspellings.

Our first tweet was the classic digital mating-call of the internet start-up:

The question all 2.0 start-ups ask! LOL

Needless to say, we are VERY excited about where this could go…
