Twitter lists: Hyperlocal sites and people who run them or are involved in hyperlocal stuff in the UK in some roundabout way

Finally getting round to finishing some Twitter lists I started a while ago (although, can you ever finish a Twitter list?), they languished with not many members and at the Trinity Mirror editorial conference over the last two days in Manchester it reminded me I needed to sort them.

She’s been using Twitter to help grow UsvsTh3m, which has rocketed to 7m unique users in November. They made that Northerner game you’ve probably played.

Not sure what all this hyperlocal stuff is? I co-wrote an ebook called Connected which has a chapter all about hyperlocal sites in the UK.
