Friday, 29th June 2012, 10:07 am

This week sees the launch of Tweet Reviews, an exciting new project that gives you the chance to have your say in 140 characters or less.

Whether you have watched a film that you loved, read a book that you hated, or saw a piece of theatre that inspired you, we want to hear from you.

Maybe you’ve got an opinion on a new TV show or album, or are dying to let people know about an impressive local restaurant or club. Let us know, and you will have the chance to be appear in the Burnley Express, the Clitheroe Advertiser and The Nelson Leader.

All the best reviews will be published in the paper, and all reviews, so long as they are appropriate, will be retweeted to our followers. Our Express account currently has over 2,600 followers, our Nelson account has nearly 800 followers, and our Clitheroe account has over 1,500 followers.

This will be an ongoing project, so there is no limit to how many reviews you can send us.

The format is straight forward - all we need to know is who you are tweeting to, what it is you are tweeting about, where you saw it, and what your opinion of it was. And, of course, don’t forget to use the hashtag #tweetreview.

For example: @BurnleyExpress Theatre/Blood Brothers/Manchester Opera House/A rollercoaster of a musical that is truly one of Willy Russell’s finest works #tweetreview

@pendlenews Book/Birdsong/Sebastian Faulks/Couldn’t put it down. A highly recommended read that gives a heartbreaking insight into the war. #tweetreview

@clithadvertiser TV/The Exclusives/ITV 2/A bit of a guilty pleasure. Ellie definitely deserved to win #tweetreview

If you don’t have Twitter, but would still like to #tweetreview, then send an e-mail to [email protected], putting #tweetreview in the subject line.
