A 250-year-old collection of Wedgewood pottery will remain in a British town thanks to a newspaper’s Twitter campaign, Nick Hudson reported Monday for HoldTheFrontPage.
The Sentinel in Stoke-on-Trent, England, launched a Twitter campaign last month after a judge ruled the town’s Wedgewood Museum had to sell assets.
The Stoke paper played its part in the historic fundraising exercise – initiating a social media campaign on Twitter which encouraged its readers to tweet, posing with their own favourite pieces of Wedgwood, using the hashtag #savewedgwoodcollection while nominating three friends.
A spokeswoman at the Wedgwood Museum thanked “our friends at the Stoke Sentinel for taking the campaign up a notch.”
