Housing association records day on Twitter

A housing association is posting an overview of every contact it has with tenants today on social media website Twitter.

Freebridge Community Housing is tweeting about every call, email, letter or visit it receives from tenants for a day, to give an insight into its work.

The association said the idea is to show the diversity of contact it has with tenants to the wider community, and tenants themselves.
