TWITTER’S top man in Europe will give students at a Barnsley school an insight into the social media giant today.

Organised by the charity Speakers for Schools, the event at Barnsley Academy will see Bruce Daisley, Vice President for Twitter’s operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, give students the ‘lowdown’ on what makes Twitter tick, as well as answering their questions.

Barnsley Academy Principal Mr Stephen Dixon said: “It’s a real coup for the Academy to have someone of Bruce’s calibre speaking to our students, particularly as social media plays such an important part in modern society.”
