On­line and on the ball

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.
