A year in the life of @TwitterAU

In July 2013, I was part of the start up team @TwitterAU. Just a year later I am heading @TwitterNY as the lead for international development for Twitter Amplify.

Here are the tweets of of the year @TwitterAU

Day one felt just like going back to school.
At the time, I had no idea that Twitter was going to come up with @dronie, the ultimate selfie machine

We kicked off with a week of intense training (anyone in my group at NHO would agree), followed by the Twitter global sales conference.

Although, I would have staid in San Francisco fro ever, we head back to Australia and set ourselves up in the first hone of @TwitterAU.
Apparently, the Aus team was the only team globally to not complain about being in corporate center… must have been the view…

Later, we had to trade the view over Sydney harbor for some awesome new team members

Plus, we do work from anywhere, so the view always changes
@Dannykeens probably remembers me doing IOs in his car between meetings.
With that in mind, I decided to take WFH one step further

Working through time zones, we had a few late nights throughout the year

And there was even some stressful times (private joke for those in the sales team)

Thankfully, the team (and the cat) was always been there!

 

Of course, all this we lead to some great work

And even some swooning with our clients

 

We felt the success,

Then @Maria started and life got a lot sweeter, with cupcakes and double birthdays !

 

Later that year, the opportunity of a trip to New York came up and one tweet changed everything…

Goodbye @TwitterAU

Thanks for an epic year
