About @LothianLoop

Twitter is where @LothianLoop is liveliest.

@LothianLoop is a twitter account which aims to share positive, uplifting news and photographs about the county of East Lothian for the benefit of residents, local businesses and visitors alike. The emphasis is on sustainable living, kindness, and activism.

However, things that simply won’t fit in 280 characters or, for whatever reason, are best suited to a blog post can be found here.

If you have news to share, either tweet @LothianLoop or send press releases and photos to admin@lothianloop.com. I’m very happy to share relevant East Lothian information for free but if you’re looking for more substantial marketing help, I’m happy to discuss this.
