Today begins my week at the helm of @thisisvt, what some are calling a social media experiment, modeled after Sweden: the State of Vermont Travel and Tourism Department created a twitter account that they hand over to Vermont citizens each week.
I’m week 7.
Before me has gone:
- Ken Millman of Spike Advertising
- Elissa Campbell of Blue Roof Designs
- Edward Shepard of Fablab
- Dana Freeman of Find and Go Seek
- Larry Olmsted, writer
- Raven Mardirosian of Shivaya Wellness
This week I hope to bring those of you who choose to follow @thisisvt a glimpse of Vermont that includes our colleges (we have a great deal of awesome opportunities for higher education), our businesses (wait, what, there’s more than farms and cows here?) our chambers of commerce (great sources of information) and of course our vistas, landscapes, food, fun, and the quirky that is this most awesome state that I now call home.
I do hope you’ll join me and enjoy this week as I introduce you to my Vermont.
