The Women’s Sports Network has launched a Twitter account offering real-time news, links, reports and results from women’s sport.
And @TWING_IT means that results, match commentary, transfer news, and anything else sporty and female will be given a national platform.
Around 30 volunteer researchers and journalists will tweet – or re-tweet – in a bid to provide a stream of information about women’s sports.
The WSN already publishes a weekly schedule of women’s sport on TV at www.wsnet.co.uk.
Jo Cotgrove from WSN said: “I’m a mum and keeping up to date on events, sport and sportswomen is so hard – @TWING_IT is a use of social media technology that at last may have a positive effect on young girls and help raise the profile of some of our great sporting role models.”
