Twitter Is a Girl’s Best Friend

Monday October 21 2013, 7.30pm/House of St Barnabas, London

Are you a Facebook family show-off or a Twitter news narcissist? Do you Instagram your dinner? Snapchat your sex life? Has Linked In ever got anyone a job, ever? And what’s the point of Ask.fm?

Social media is now THE media, not only breaking stories but making stories, maintaining friendships and work associations alike. Women, in particular, have embraced it. But in an open-to-anyone arena, not everyone is pro-female… Come and listen as we unpick the dark and light sides of  social media and discuss where it’s going in the future.

 

Speakers: Suzanne Moore, writer; psychotherapist and author Philippa Perry; Poppy Dinsey, founder of What I Wore Today (wiwt.com). Chaired by Miranda Sawyer.

Twitter is a Girl’s Best Friend was the third in Bug’s 37 Things You Need to Know About Modern Britain, a series of talks curated for the House of St Barnabas, a charity supporting the homeless in London.

Media coverage of the talk included this piece in the Daily Telegraph.
