#TWiC: Week of 2.7-2.11
#TWiC focuses on the content of the week across multiple platforms
Hello again! Welcome back to our weekly feature called #TWiC — This Week in Content.
Before we get down to brass tacks, we want to offer our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers to friend of the operation Mike Bates, who is going through something no parent should ever have to. We’re here for you, Mike and family.
Basically, we’ll use this space to share things not only created during the work week, but enjoyed as well. If you wish to submit something to the list — something you’ve created or simply enjoyed — please email brandon.r.warne-at-gmail-dot-com or find me on Twitter @Brandon_Warne or @AccessTwins.
Make sure to check back during the week as the list evolves!
