The London 2012 Live Site screen in Festival Square, Edinburgh, will become a “love site” this weekend thanks to BT, in a bid to help the hopelessly romantic in the build up to Valentine’s Day.
The giant screen will show the public’s love messages via tweets, texts, emails and photos. Romantics can send their messages to appear on the Live Site screens on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 from 11am to 6pm, and on Monday 14 from 10am to 6pm.
Members of the public can tweet their messages to @BTLoveSites, including the hashtag relevant to their location. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “Edinburgh” as the relevant location. Or send a text including the relevant location (EDIN for Edinburgh), costing 25p plus your standard network fee, to 82010.
Suzi Williams, director, BT group marketing and brand, said: “We’re delighted to be playing cupid for people in Edinburgh this Valentine’s weekend, enabling them to send messages to their loved ones via the Live Sites. It’s a great testament to how the power of communication can bring people together!”
For those romantic lovebirds, it's also now even easier to tweet on the go by getting online at one of BT's 2.5 million Wi-Fi hotspots. It's the biggest Wi-Fi network in the UK and is free to BT broadband customers. Hotspots are in major city centres, high street chains, homes, independent businesses and the underground as well as many residential streets and can be found using the handy BT FON app which has a map that takes you to the nearest one.
The Live Site screens are run in partnership with London 2012, the BBC and Local Authorities. They are in urban centres around the UK and offer live information, video, news and community events.
