Contact details and Admin for @we_love_aural

@We_Are_Aural is proud to announce a bit of growth in the short time it has existed. Creator of the account Nick (@destroy_robots) has found that interest in the account has been better than expected, at time of writing this, we currently have curators lined up until March. 

However, Nick has also been finding with work, and study, it’s not always possible to keep track of the account, when it is sometimes operating at a peak time.  Also interest has been expressed in keeping a record of the songs users have tweeted, which is why expansion is needed.  

We Are Aural is proud to announce the addition of two new administrators to help keep the account up and running! There will be three users to keep track of the account, answer your questions about curation, and be there to help.

 

CURRENT ADMIN: 

Danie (@DanieTreg)

Please get in touch with one of us, regarding queries about the account.

Rules for curating @We_Love_Aural

Volunteered/roped in to curate?  We’re very lucky to have you 🙂

Rules:
1. All posts that aren’t conversations should be music related, eg, mentioning someone is fine, but tweeting your shopping list isn’t.

2. All music is perfectly accetable to post. You may post whatever musical related items you like, whether it’s filmclips, your own

music, or simply talking about how a certain artist makes you feel, it’s upto you!
3. There is no limit on how often to tweet, but please do not volunteer unless you use twitter regularly, as you may take up a week where someone could have lots of fun with the account.

4. Be prepared for the possibility of dealing with trolls and negativity – if someone annoys you because of your posts, either be civil about it, or just block the account, or if you choose to take the matter further, use your own account to do it. Not everyone will get the concept of rotation curation, so forget about them, and move on with the people who do.
5. The account will be yours for exactly 7 days. In this time, you are free to follow, star, RT anyone you like. The more people the merrier.  It is upto you however to upload a picture to identify you as a user, (either you, or something musical) and to update the bio with your details.

What @We_Love_Aural is all about.

I’m Nick. I want to say I’m a typical music lover, but really, are there any typical music lovers? You love what you love, because the tune is catchy, or you relate to the lyrics. Perhaps a particular song or band makes you emotional or nostalgic?  You love the music you love, and it’s your opportunity to share music with the world!

@We_Love_Aural is a rotation curation account on twitter. A different twitter user runs the account each week, taking over on a Monday, the time of which can vary depending on your location in the world – for example, in Australia it’s on a Monday night, in the UK it’s on a Monday morning, the times can be provided to you based on knowledge of your local time zone. A new user each week, a new perspective on music, a chance to revisit or be reminded of classics. It can be a very universal thing, and not only that, musicians are free to share their own music if they so wish. Loving music is not just about listening to it. 

I commonly hear people say “I like this song/band, but don’t judge me”, and this is what prompted me to go ahead and make the account, as I’ve always felt that music can mean alot to some people, and they shouldn’t be ashamed to like a particular artist.

Follow, and enjoy. 🙂
