Not quite a NAIDOC footy match

The NAIDOC Twitter stream was infiltrated by a certain game of football last night with many people dubbing it the NAIDOC State of Origin. (lol)

Today on Deadly Bloggers, we have new posts
As we are now on the home-stretch for NAIDOC 2012, I'd like to reflect on the way in which so much of what is happening in social media for NAIDOC has been driven by local activities. Apart from the ABC and SBS, there is still in 2012, little acknowledgement of NAIDOC week at a national level from mainstream media - and that's both TV and print. But there is still so much going on around the country and social media combined with local print news, demonstrates that NAIDOC is stronger than ever.

But it's important to consider that if I only accessed the major television stations, I'd never know that NAIDOC was happening, but because I'm online, I've found out what's happening in places like - Blacktown, Ballarat, Rockhampton, Fraser Coast, Bunderberg, Manning River, Port Augusta, Bendigo, Toowoomba, Mornington Peninsula, Woolloomoolloo, Geraldton, Cowra, Coffs Harbour, Gladstone, Cumberland, Canberra, Glen Innes, Shepparton.

Don't forget to use the hashtags: #NAIDOC, #NAIDOC2012 and #NAIDOCBlogs
