One of the reasons I love museum twitter is that it's the slightly more relaxed, dare I say, sillier, side of social media interaction. And there's a LOT of interaction.
When Merchant Adventurers' Hall got a unicorn stuck in the roof, they recieved advice and jokes from plenty of people, including Mary Rose Museum, the US National Archives, Aston Hall Museum (who offered to train a squirrel), King John's House (who suggested a traditional Lion), the Royal Engineers Museum (terifying helicopter thing), Fountains Abbey just being smug that they don't have a roof...
It's a very organic, human feeling, approachable, relatable place on this part of twitter, and well worth spending a little time in.
