Attention All Bloggers

VIVA has big plans for some interesting and entertaining events for bloggers, and would like to cover everyone by getting their contact details.

All you have to do is send your details to socialmedia@viva.com.kw

VIVA is serious about the new social medias, like Twitter, Facebook, and Blogs. They view the blogging world as an important element, just like regular press and traditional marketing.

And VIVA does throw some of the best events for bloggers out there. The attention and care and interest they pay to bloggers is overwhelming and nice. I’ve been to a few VIVA events myself, like the VIVA-iPhone launch (here and here) and the premier of X-Men First Class (hereherehere). You can expect to have a great time, be taken seriously, and meet some senior VIVA personnel on the way too.

Don’t forget to send your details to socialmedia@viva.com.kw

Social Media Club Is Now in Kuwait

I just came from my first ever event with the Kuwaiti branch of the international “Social Media Club”. They were nice enough to invite us for breakfast.

I got to meet a lot of exciting people there; like TV presenter Hessa Al-Mulla, Social Media Queen Hind Al-Naheth, and VIVA’s Head of Communications Ms. Sara.

It’s nice to see people take social media professionally like this. I’ll have a more detailed post later on inshalla.

Good luck guys, wishing you all the best inshalla.

The United Nations Development Program Is Now in Kuwait

UNITED NATIONS DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME KUWAIT
 LAUNCHES TWITTER ACCOUNT
KUWAIT CITY, 28 June (UNDP Kuwait) – The United Nations Development Programme in Kuwait (UNDP Kuwait) has registered and launched its Twitter account at @UNDPKuwait.
The account is set to make information about the organization’s on-going projects available and create a forum from which the public can have an understanding of UNDP Kuwait’s work, aspirations, initiatives and goals.
The Twitter account can be found at: http://www.twitter.com/UNDPKuwait
UNDP is the UN’s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners.
You can get in touch with UNDP-Kuwait online, via their twitter account, or by contacting their communications specialist, Mr. Nasser Al-Qatami.

The UNDP is an important, prestigious, and internationally respected organization. I feel so proud that Kuwait has now joined in on the program. All the best to the Kuwaiti team.
Thanks to Nasser Al-Qatami for the press release.

My First Ever Buddy on Twitter

I still remember it, like it was just last week. It was the lovely Basma from the yummy 13cups blog. She added me after I tweeted that I don’t have any followers yet, I thought that was very sweet of her.

Then Life and work got busy, and me and 13cups don’t seem to catch up a lot these days. 7asafa. But anyways, I just wanted to send Basma a big thank you for being friendly and nice.

Want to know who your first follower was? Then click here. Thx Kaifan5 for the lovely tip.
