Online and on the ball
WESTERN Suburbs Weekly reporters are in serious danger of social media fatigue after all the tweeting, posting, liking, friending and following they got up to in 2014.
Our on-the-ground team kicked off the year posting live multimedia updates from the Jolimont bushfires and the action only heated up from there.
We were the very first to break State-wide news, including the imminent redevelopment of the Station Street Markets, infamous giant goon bag at Cottesloe, Subi Street Festival cancellation and abusive protests against Prime Minister Tony Abbott at the Harry Perkins Institute opening in Nedlands.
There was also plenty of time for fun, like engaging our sister paper Stirling Times in a passionate beach war, posting adorable quok- ka photos and launching our search for the lucky couple behind Eliza’s big proposal.
In just 12 months, we sent more than 2600 tweets, doubled our Facebook likes and connected with thousands of local readers in just the click of a mouse.
