Experiment in social media

I’m trying a new experiment in social media – tweeting a ‘real-time-crime’ story live as it happens. 

The story starts with a murder tonight at 9.30 (UK time) and ends with a real event on a real date early in September. 

It’s a challenge to get the characters and tell the whole story in 140 character bites.  Do let me know what you think! 

You can read the story at You don’t need a Twitter account to follow the story!

Countdown to Twitter crime

Not long now until Inspector Nash gets his first case.

If you know anyone in Swindon or Wootton Bassett (now there’s a hint as to where the first action will take place!) please let them know about this project so that they can take a look at Nash’s first entries either here or on the Inspectors Twitter account

Criminal investigation updates on Twitter

I will be Tweeting an exciting new story live ‘as it happens’ starting 28th August! 

This is ‘real time crime’ where Inspector Nash of the Swindon Police will be making his case notes on Twitter rather than in his usual notebook.

As an introduction to the project please take a look here or at the Inspectors Twitter account

Please follow Inspector Nash as he makes his investigations.
