Every few days I get a notification on Twitter that one of my tweets has featured in a fellow member’s newspaper. When I say “newspaper” although it’s not something you can hold in your hands but read on the screen, it is in effect a newspaper in every way. It has headlines, different sections and more; embedded videos with a few adverts flashing away vying for your attention.
You can choose any title you like, and you can create more than one, but the default chose ‘The Morgen Bailey Daily‘ for me which had a nice ring to it so I kept it.
I linked it to my Facebook and Twitter accounts so my profile was automatically created, all I needed to do was add a background (if I didn’t want to choose their default one – I added a British blue sky) and Bob’s my father’s brother (well, not in my case – Frank, Fred and Arthur) but it was done and sent out in the ether.
So every day, every mid-afternoon UK time there’ll be a new edition and as it’s automated, all I have to do is sit and read it – it’ll even tell all my Twitter buddies that it’s hot off the presses – and given that it picks the articles out of what my fellow Twitters have to say, based on writing-related keywords, it’ll be a surprise to us all, but hopefully a pleasant one. 🙂
If you create your own and have any queries, feel free to email me. I’m new to it but I’ll try and help.
