The Great Border Terrier Posse Map

Hello my friends....today we bring you news of our latest project for the Border Terrier Posse: the Great Border Terrier Posse Map!




We have 500+ members of the posse on twitter now. You can meet them all HERE if you have not already done so....and there are new members joining daily....


...queuing politely to complete the paperwork…*whisper*…we iz grateful to Anne Gregory for da photo wot we showin ere,,,,

....but with so may furriends in so many different places it has become increasingly hard to keep track of everyone...so we had the idea to put all of the doggies onto one big map so we can keep in touch and organise tweet-ups....*drum roll*...so here it is....with assistance from @rohanthebt.....stage 1 of the Great Border Terrier Posse Map....


CLICK BUTTON TO SEE MAP


Things to know about the GBTPM.........

1. We have included most of the 500+ members of the border terrier posse....there are a few of you who we don't have any location details for...if you want me to add you then please just get in touch with @claptonterrier or peemail me at marleyterrier57 at googlemail dot com....sadly, in the four years of the posse we have lost touch with a few doggies who no longer tweet.....


...you have mail...


2. If you have told me which town you live in then you have been "dropped" onto your town....if we only have a county or country for you then we have "dropped" you into the middle of the map....(for example, a lot of the terriers in Yorkshire have been dropped onto Leeds). We can always move you if you have more accurate information about where you are....


...lat: 95 north, 97.907 east

....@zoetheborder..er, you are in the middle of nowhere...!!


3. We took your location from your twitter bio, unless you contacted me with other more up-to-date information.....if you've moved since you joined Twitter then we might have you in the wrong place..!!


4. You will see that there is a list of folk on the left hand side of the map. Roughly speaking, you are listed alphabetically by your name (your real name if your twitter name is a funny one)....but Google seems to like to mess around with the list so we hope you can find yourself and your pals...the listing runs onto at least pages.....if you click between the different pages then different flags show on the map so it's a good idea to do that if you are trying to find your neighbours.....THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT


...S before T right?....


5. If you don't want to be on the map, please let me know and we will remove you immediately.....we have used only information which is public on Twitter to identify you...


6. We will be doing more stages of the map....please circulate it far and wide and we will see how many of the non-posse border terriers we can include: remember, the posse is only really BTs who tweet from their own accounts and there are lots of pals out there who use their humans' accounts to get in touch. YOU ARE ALL WELCOME.....we just wanted to get stage 1 done to see if people liked it before taking on any more work...




7. There is a facility to rate the map and comment on it. You can also share the map...and we would love it if you would...and you can also embed the map into your own blogs and websites....that would be lovely too....

8. There will be errors! We know!.....all corrections gratefully received....


Happy travels my friends!!

..using the map....
