Ive had a thought and want bounce it of the forum for opinions.

Im going to open a twitter account and run it from the morning of the 21st January with updates through the day explaining what happened at a particular time. The intention is to run it right through the night of the 21st and pick up the early morning departure from camp, Then to increase the frequency of postings to run through the events of the morning of the 22nd building up the postings to show the time scale in real time of the battle, the fugitives and the return to camp.
Wherever possible it will be using proven timings and 'deduced' timings' but there will be a certain 'poetic licence' during the mid day period.

I thought it could commemorate the loss of those brave warriors and soldiers in a real time interactive way.

Do we have a lot of twitter followers that would be interested? Or are there any suggestions.

Salute

Don't get involved with this "twitter" thing. It seems to be nothing but trouble.

Not for me Springbok. Rather celebrate it on this forum, like we do every year. Good thought though,

Hi springy.

I have to agree with OH and Chard, I never get involved with anything like 'twitter' or other stuff like 'face book', sorry mate.

Why not do it like Chard says, 'live on this forum', (you may need to get approval from Pete), but at least you won't get 'gate crashers' and 'trollers' joining in and causing trouble.

Like Chard says, we commemorate these brave fellows on here every year, and it is also getting close to November 11th, and we always remember the fallen of two world wars and other conflicts, so it might be best to have a word with Pete and arrange for a 'vigil' to commemorate iSandlwana on here.

Just a thought mate.

Salute

Hi springbok9

Well I think it is a great idea and think it may go well but to a limited few.

I do understand that you could get a few issues with trolls and like, but I would go for it.

agree

Good idea, but I would get involved, I don't have a twitter or face book account, and never would. They just seem to cause problems. I like the forum it's well moderated and everyone get's on, most of the time. Do it on the forum. Dont waste your energy on Twitter.

Thanks for the feedback guys.
Reasoning:
Like a lot of people I am seeing a general decline in interest in the Zulu Wars. Theres a whole new generation out there that never heard of Zulu, or Stanley Baker or even Maurice Micklewhite. And that's pretty sad so Ive decided to try in my own small way to try and build up a bit more enthusiasm. My app is rated number 2 in South Africa and is in the top 500 internationally so hopefully its reaching and possibly inspiring new interest.
I have, in my other life a pretty big following, as does my son, on Twitter. We thought it could be a motivator to get people talking to run the count down on twitter in order to try and reach new 'blood'.
Im pretty sure that everyone in the forum knows the time line to the battle and so shouldn't really be interested in seeing it happen on the forum.
If there is that interest then sure it wouldn't be a problem to repeat it ( Don't worry Pete there will be no connection between the two). However it could be a forum to advertise this site, as Ive done on the app.

That is the thinking. But again thanks for everyones input.

Cheers

Why don't you let all your followers along with your sons know about this forum. There's nothing stopping them joining as individuals, outside Facebook.

Your quite right, that's why I will be doing the count down on twitter, and as I said earlier doing my best to promote the forum.
