Network Tweets launch in Sheffield

Have your say

A NEW online networking event for Sheffield businesses and organisations starts tonight.

Sheffield Hour will help city firms and services to mix or promote one another using social networking site Twitter.

It will take place on the first Tuesday of each month from 8pm to 9pm with businesses and organisations including the Twitter hash tag #SheffieldHour in their tweets.

Rob Duffin, of Social Business Sheffield, set up the event to promote the city.

He said it would enable firms to help others.

He said: “They can use this hour a month to network to let fellow Sheffielders know who they are and what they do.

“In the current economic climate, it’s tough enough to promote your business or organisation. Hopefully, this can help and will be a great chance to promote the city of Sheffield itself.”
