@WeAreBrisbane is alive! You all know I'm a huge Twitter fan, so don't be surprised to hear it from me :)

Rotation curation (AKA #rocur) Twitter accounts put the spotlight on a location or topic and rotate the curator/composer of Tweets every set period, most commonly weekly from what I've seen so far.

Managing one team Twitter account with many contributors used to be a highly-delicate process, often relying simply on goodwill or written contracts. Nowadays we have a stack of third-party clients available for Twitter users (including some with scheduling capabilities), so there's little concern over security and more time spent scheduling contributors in order of choice.

In addition to the new Brisbane account (started today by my Brisbane foodie mate @kellyyyllek) there's also @WeAreSydney, @WeMelbourne, @WeAreADL and @WeAreAustralia for Aussies, plus a host of others all around the world on topics such as science (@realscientists), music (@We_Love_Aural) and social issues (@BeCareAware).

That last one in particular is interesting, as it's run by Carers South Australia to increase awareness of the struggles unpaid carers have on a daily basis. Kudos for the on-trend thinking and clever use of Twitter to share experiences!

Facebook is the other clear choice for #rocur, and Instagram could be another candidate... if the API were opened up to allow more clients to schedule posts and add multiple users. Alas, I believe we're still some time off from that happening.

In the meantime, you'll see myself and a number of more notable Brisbane dwellers over at @WeAreBrisbane soon. I'm certainly not complaining!

Would you ever contribute to a #rocur social media account?
