Announcing @weMelbourne, a Twitter account sharing a new Melburnian each week

Hi Melbourne friends and tweeters, I wanted to let you know I’ve hopped on the city and country-curating bandwagon and started @weMelbourne,  a Twitter account sharing tweets from a different Melburnian each week.

Inspired by @sweden, @newzealand, and of course local accounts @WeAreAustralia and @IndigenousX, I really wanted to see a local version. Melbourne is a town so in love with itself, how could we not take this opportunity to share the things we love (and hate) about our city? 🙂

I’ll be selecting people with an eye for diversity – and once you have the keys to the account, it’s all yours for the week. If you want to come out as an instant coffee drinker or Collingwood supporter, you won’t be censored. I just ask that you make sure you tweet at least once a day to make sure the account keeps ticking over.

If you’d like to volunteer for @WeMelbourne, please send a tweet to that account, or leave a comment here with your Twitter name. I would also really love it if you’d make a suggestion of the Melbourne people you’d like to see tweeting from @WeMelbourne. Thanks!

    @firstdogonmoon would seem an obvious candidate for a bit of weird.

    Hi Nic,
    Thanks for volunteering, and sorry I’ve taken a while to reply! I’ve added you to my list of volunteers. I’m trying to make sure there’s a good diverse mix of people/interests/etc but will get in touch with you when I can offer you a slot.
