Why? Twitter Twenty!

A great answer to “Why Cleveland?” is the fact that we have so many engaged, active, and excited residents…people who are passionate about CLE and want to share their thoughts and opinions.  Another great answer to “Why Cleveland?” is having media outlets like Cleveland.com and the Plain Dealer foster the conversation about CLE by using social media to give CLE-ers a voice in their community.

For the last month, I’ve been enjoying following Cleveland.com and The Plain Dealer’s Twitter Twenty.  This is a group of 20 CLE-ers with a presence on Twitter, who discuss a different CLE topic each week.  Last month’s Twitter Twenty even inspired a previous blog post.

So, when Alana from Cleveland.com asked if I’d be a part of this month’s Twitter Twenty, I jumped at the chance.  And who wouldn’t?  Check out the company I’m in (info taken from the Cleveland.com list and participants Twitter bios)…

If you’re on Twitter you can follow along with the Twitter Twenty all month with the #CLE20 hashtag in our tweets.  And of course, you can individually follow all the Twitter Twenty.

If you’re not on Twitter, you can still participate in the conversation by following our weekly topics on Cleveland.com.  There will also be a weekly promotional section with part of the #CLE20 conversation on Fridays on Page A2 of the Plain Dealer.

Join the conversation!
