I’ve just learned a valuable social media lesson. Don’t retweet a tweet until you’ve checked the link associated with it … thankfully for a very positive reason!
When Big Finish tweeted the winner of their recent Vortex art competition, I had already received a very nice email stating that I hadn’t won, but that the standard had been extremely high. So, when I saw the image from the winner, Sophie Cowdrey, I thought nothing more of retweeting said piece with a small congratulatory message and continued with my day…until my friend Mark Clapham made a point of congratulating me for being runner up!
I quickly took a look at the Big Finish website to see that I had indeed been name checked as runner-up. To say that I’m shocked is an understatement…
