[Update, May 1st, 2014 at 11:59pm SGT: The 100th curator has been found! Curators are still needed for future weeks, sign up now!]
This is Jinhua (@kuekj), and I am taking over the admin role of @hellofrmsg from Farhan (@frhn). He has done a great job managing this #RotationCuration (#RoCur) account since March 2013.
Rotation curation projects began with Sweden’s official Twitter account (@sweden) and similar accounts have been opened by other countries, states, communities and companies. Singapore’s account, @hellofrmsg, was started in July 2012 by Kirsten (@kixes) and June (@MizHalle), and more than 75,400 tweets have been sent out as I write this post.
Since taking over, I have created the list of former curators (credits to @PeopleofNZ for the inspiration), separated by years. A sample of their tweets are also found next to their handles. I have also relocated the defunct @hellofrmsg Tumblr here, as Tumblr does not play well with tables.
We will soon welcome our 100th curator during the week of June 1–June 7 this year, but we are still looking for someone based in Singapore to be the one.
You don’t have to be a celebrity or personality—just be willing to share your thoughts, communicate with followers and be able to defend your opinion. As we say in Singlish, mai pai seh!
If you are interested, or if you know someone who fits the bill, head over to the sign up form!
(P.S. Curators are also wanted beyond June 7, 2014!)
