Blogging about Twitter, tweeting about our blog

LHSA has joined Twitter!

We’ve been talking about setting up an account for a while, and have been seeing how other archives use Twitter to let us know about their collections and services. There are also some great twitter feeds based on archival records, from the life of a West Lothian poor inspector (@PoorInspector) to the 1942 manoeuvring of the War Cabinet (@ukwarcabinet).

We’ve been inspired by these, and the recent successes of our blog, Facebook page and Flickr albums, to start tweeting too. We’ll be letting you know about our work, the material we hold and when there are new LHSA blog posts and Flickr albums to have a look at. We’ll be highlighting events we’re involved with and the work of our colleagues at the Centre for Research Collections, as well as re-tweeting anything of interest.

Please follow us at LothianHealthArchive, search for lhsaeul.
