THE Coleraine Times continues to grow its online audience with the launch of an official Twitter account.
The paper has always been committed to delivering the latest news and sport from the borough as it happens and they see the addition of a dedicated Twitter page as another vital tool.
“As a newspaper it is important to embrace new technologies which will help you reach as wide an audience as possible,” explained editor David Rankin.
“News is instantaneous now and social media has a massive role to play in the industry.
“We attract over 10,000 unique users to our website, colerainetimes.co.uk, every month and that coupled with our increasingly popular Facebook page means we already have a very strong internet presence.
“The addition of a dedicated Twitter account will only add to that.
“We look forward to continuing as the Borough’s number one paper both online and in print.”
The Coleraine Times has an audience of just under 3,000 on Facebook, and in the space of one week on Twitter it increased its followers by 50%.
