Who said that?

Match the tweet with the tweeter
How well do you know the people and museums you follow on Twitter? Judging from the results of last night’s pre-conference tweetup quiz, it’s a mixed picture.

A few entries achieved a top score of 16 out of 16, correctly matching the twitter account with the tweet. Others failed to make the grade, their judgement possibly affected by the wine previously served at the earlier networking reception at the Senedd (surely only one museum would ever tweet about a jar of moles?).

Following a prize draw, I’m happy to announce the winner of the quiz (and recipient of a bag of Welsh cakes) as @zapactive.

There are no more prizes to win, but if you want to see how well you know Twitter’s museums, then simply match the numbered tweets with the tweeters:

1. Can you learn to love a bright blue slug whose bum drops off when it’s scared? Tickets available for just £2.50!

2. Book now for a day of folklore and magic Saturday October 4 at the Museum

3. New #Staffshoard gallery opens Oct 17th
