My top tweets since Feb… and more!

Earlier in the year, I put together a compilation of what I’d been up to on social media as I’d had a pretty good start to 2015. I’d racked up mentions in The Scottish Sun (for starting a UK top trend on Twitter), in The Metro and in The Daily Star.

How have things gone since then?

Pretty well I’d say. It’s one thing to babble on but it’s probably easier just to show you what I’ve been up to since February:

I published my most popular tweet so far:

I devised this entry for The Drum magazine’s Chip Shop Awards, for my employers, Caliber. It earned a place in the magazine:

This comment (borne out genuine frustration at having called this outcome) became Scotland on Sunday’s ‘Tweet of the Week’:

Andrew Charlton of Exposure Events was familiar with the Scottish Comedy FC podcast and my own social media background. As a result, I was invited to speak at the company’s Social Media Expo at Hampden (and we got to record the podcast in one of the suites!). Incredibly, my talk became the most subscribed talk at any of the events they’ve put on across the UK!

As you’d expect, I was up on election night and monitoring what was happening…

That gym tweet was picked up by The Herald’s diary column

Football still got a look in on election night though:

The next day also provided fertile ground:

This reaction to Ed Balls losing his seat earned me a welcome retweet from The Poke:

But life can’t all be politics:

Of course, there’s no reason why just being out and about can’t lead to Twitter content. Heading out during my lunch break yielded this result. (And the council refuse dept getting in touch via Twitter to arrange for the couch to be removed!)

Everybody loves Eurovision, don’t they? Well, not everyone, obviously.

Another thought that crossed my mind while being out at lunchtime and caught in the Scottish weather. This was another tweet picked up by The Herald’s Diary column.

I noticed the #makeamoviepregnant hashtag and decided to join in:

It earned me the favour of U.S. website, The Chive

Sooo… I’ve been fairly busy.

But I’ve also managed to fit in appearances on 3 BBC Radio Scotland shows:

MacAulay & Co

Call Kaye

The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected

As well as writing on 3 BBC Radio Scotland shows…

The Good, The Bad and The Unexpected

The Fame Game

Breaking The News

My friend Richard Melvin recently joked that I was “Scotland’s most in-demand comedy writer”… I’m hoping to remove the levity from that statement 😉
