I will not make a habit of this, but given the number of you who wrote about #1000Speak in coffee posts over the last month, I think it is appropriate. This tweet is pinned to the top of my Twitter profile.
One of the things I am doing is compiling a library of Tweets that @1000Speak admins can copy and paste to send from that account and from their personal accounts. I don’t have the time right now to go through four weeks’ worth of linkies and find your posts. If you wrote a coffee post that talked primarily about 1000 Speak OR a compassion post on Feb. 20 and you would like me to include a link in the 1000 Speak tweet library, drop links on this thread and I will snag the tweets at my convenience and add them to the library.
This is my way of saying thanks to all of you for your support, which has been quite overwhelming. And of leaving 1000 Speak a permanent resource when it is time for me to say “my work here is done” and wander on to the next hamlet, as it is my wont to do. Some bullet points about this effort and my involvement with it.
- If you drop more than one link in a single comment, you need to comment again and let me know because comments with multiple links go to spam.
- I am not running @1000Speak long-term. I am building it to the point that it can grow organically and other people can run it without triggering Twitter’s spam controls and getting the account suspended.
- For the moment, when you see that account Tweeting, that is me. But I am doing my best to put things in place and to give 1000 Speak the resources to run a multi-user Twitter account and play for organic Twitter growth. This will take time.
- Obviously, there is more coming from 1000 Speak. You don’t set up a Twitter account for a one-time thing. Discussions are being had. This will also take time.
Since the next Feminist Friday discussion is at Part Time Monster this week and I am posting a mid-week reminder, I am unpinning the Feminist Friday schedule and pinning this instead. If you are a collaborator or supporter, and you want a link included in the library, it is yours for the asking, whether it’s a coffee post or not. But you must share the link with me on this thread. Building a tweet library is fairly laborious work, and there are a damn lot of you at this point. It would take me weeks to track down all your posts on my own time.
