@tCntweets interviews @PeerIndex about the #tCnTop100 and #AJtCn100

With so much activity surrounding our tCnTop100 series we thought we’d give people the chance to find out a bit more about our partners behind the initiative – Peerindex (@PeerIndex)

We’ve received plenty of positive feedback from people who think it’s a great idea and invaluable to help promote the use of twitter, as-well as social media in general, to the UK Built Environment.

Other feedback has been mixed with users querying why perhaps they do not feature as highly in specific lists as they’d like.

Some still just don’t get it while others have taken a little longer to see what the point is and indeed what our objectives actually are.

We appreciate all feedback, good or bad because our objective is very simple.

“tCn – the Construction network, was created by people within the UK Built Environment to help individuals and organisations understand, embrace and utilise new media for their own good and that of the industry.”

We do this via our social media support services (a collective team of thought leaders specialising in PR/Marketing and Digital Media) and the networking and information sharing website we have built.

The #tCnTop100 is a initiative to help identify and promote existing users of Twitter within specific categories and disciplines whist raising awareness of the benefits to those not yet involved.

For this reason it was essential that we not only spread the word to as many tweeters as possible but also reach non-tweeters too.  We’ve managed to do that with the support of leading publications who have featured content through both their print and online channels.  Some have even featured our ideas and content without us even knowing!

Our next project is the #AJtCn100 to provide a definitive list of registered UK Architects establishing who has already embraced social media and how effectively they are using it.  Su Butcher (@SuButcher) and the rest of the tCn Team are busy collecting the nominations and we’re looking forward to seeing the results published in the Architects Journal in July.

We will continue to do this and will constantly think of other ways we can collaborate with leading organisations to achieve our objectives and add value.

What you might not know…

In an effort to ensure the tCnTop100 initiatives reach as many people as possible we insist that all information and results are available in-front of pay-walls as with articles so far on our site in Construction News (registration required) and Architects Journal.

The PeerIndex Interview

Having met the team at Peerindex our tCn Founder, (@RyanBriggstCn) thought it would be a good idea to interview the PeerIndex Founder – Azeem Azhar (@Azeem).

This will give you the chance to find out a bit more about the #tCnTop100 series, how peerindex actually works and how you can ultimately improve your ranking.

How can you get involved?

In true social media style we want to get our members and followers involved as much as possible.

So we’re giving you the chance to ask the questions by simply tweeting “Can @tCntweets ask @Peerindex {question}” in under 140 characters before noon this Wednesday, 15th June.

What would you like to know about Peerindex? Is there anything that concerns you about the system, or something you don’t understand? Ask your questions and we’ll put them to Azeem.

Interview questions will also feature the twitter handles of those who submitted them.

Ryan will be taking his trusted iPhone4 along to video the interview which will be posted on the video section of our site – www.tcn.uk.com – together with a full article soon.

p.s – The word on the grapevine is that Azeem is a West Ham fan so we’re sure he and Ryan will get on fine!
