MY OWN HIGHLIGHTS

NHM and V&A Tweet OFF – Both Natural History Museum and the V&A had a late night during #MuseumWeek.  What happened was social media being used in a fun, sharing and semi-competitive way.  I LOVED IT.

#MuseumNomination also happened this week.  The idea was to video you completing the sentence ‘Museum Is ….’ and then nominate another museum.  I was nominated by @Palazzomadamato and after about 8 bloopers – C was filming, don’t ask – produced this.

There were thousands and thousands of Tweets throughout the week.  Many funny, some thought-provoking, others inspiring.
