  • 1. A Twitter phenomenon@theashes
    It all started with a tweet
    @theashes is a real life, tangible example of the power of social media
  • 2. @theashes
    It began for @theashes when she received thousands of tweets from cricket fans during the Brisbane Ashes Test.
    Off the back of her response of “I’m not a freaking cricket match”, an online conversation #gettheashestotheashes was started
    One Small Planet’s tweet centre pushed this conversation along
    She has now a following of around 14,000
    We brought in @LJLoch of Republic PR who channelled the tsunami of global media interest across Australia, the UK, the US, India and South Africa, co-ordinating live cross after live cross
    Now, for example, from one tweet @theashes can generate nearly 20,000 impressions

    Vodafone @Vodafone_au to provide a phone
    Ford @FordCastleHill to provide local transport in a Ford Fiesta
