I am @thisisvt
My life has become very strange, very quickly.
Last week, I heard about the Vermont Department of Tourism‘s new marketing campaign. Following Sweden’s example, Vermont will have a different Vermonter at the helm of its Twitter handle @ThisisVT each week.
They hope to show the State’s flavor through the eyes of those who live there. You can read more about it in this VPR article.
So I had one of my “I wanna do that” moments and filled out the nomination form.
I got a call the next day. They wanted me to do it.
What else was I going to do but say yes?
I just survived my first day. I can’t say it was smooth sailing, but it was lots of fun – people in Vermont are nice! Some of my tweets made it on to today’s broadcast of The :30. Check out the show (and my embarrassing tweet) below.
Why couldn’t they have shared my tweet about my dog barfing instead?
