TweetPerth_BLOG.jpgTweetPerth - the popular Perth Twitter account that aggregates local Twitter activity, news and events - has fast became a hub for the Perth Twitter Community.

Now Tweet Perth has launched a new content platform with 40 well-known Perth bloggers.

The new Tweet Perth website will be an extension of the popular Twitter account to become home to Perth's most engaging and interested long-form blog content, news, event information and more.

Adam Barrell, founder of Tweet Perth, said the new platform will be a game changer for how Perth's most popular independent content producers engage with local audiences.
"After building Tweet Perth into this highly engaged, active and fun local community, it seemed a natural progression to revamp the website and re-launch with a new edge - allowing us to also give a voice to Perth bloggers, allowing them to further share their content to new audiences across the web and social media," said Barrell.

"Using our strong Twitter, Instagram and Facebook community, we put the word out for bloggers who might be interested in sharing their content on our platforms. Now we have about 40 local bloggers, and just as I am passionate about Perth, all bloggers have their specialities and passions, like local food, fashion, health and fitness, movies, travel, hidden gems across Perth, music, events, lifestyle pieces and much more."

Contributors include Emma Payne, Ryan Northover, Natalie Tombides, Mark Williamson, Marin Eade, Kristy Leigh, Glennys Marsdon, Emma Williams, Hannah Bailey-Churcher, Holly Walton, Myra Peggy Rose Glanford and Michelle Xa Rechichi - plus many more.

"While bloggers can create unique content for Tweet Perth they're also sharing content that would already be on their own website - and by posting on the Tweet Perth website we're now helping these bloggers amplify their content."

Barrell said as the audience builds, there will be opportunities for brands interested in engaging the Perth community in more authentic ways, becoming part of the conversation rather than broadcasting their message.

"If you're a Perth marketer or PR professional, there's going to be opportunity to get involved as well. Brands heavily involved in content marketing might like to use the new website to re-share their interesting blog posts to our audience, PR agencies are approaching us saying, our client has a really cool event coming up in Perth and we want to help get the word out."

TweetPerth.com.au re-launched three weeks ago, and there are also long-term plans to build similar social media communities in other major Australian cities.
