New segment on Andrew Hawkins Racing – Must Follow On Twitter

June 2, 2011

Okay, new segment from me which will consist of shorter posts so hopefully the blog gets updated more often!

For those who have been living under a rock the last few years (even the last few months), social media has emerged as an important factor in the racing industry.

You only need to look at the drama with Lee Freedman last Saturday, when he tweeted his disgust at the vet’s decision to remove Our Smoking Rock.

Even major events like the controversial Grand Annual at Warrnambool have been influenced by the immediate Twitter response in the aftermath.

Therefore, I’m hoping to build a list of all the racing tweeps I follow on Twitter – those people who are informative, active and engaging.

The average punter can now interact with trainers, jockeys, journalists, racecallers from right across the world.

It is truly mindblowing.

Once you get started on Twitter, your perceptions of racing will change – I guarantee it.

And so it is in that spirit that I will

My first Must Follow On Twitter tweep will be posted later today.
