1. Why are you personally on Twitter ?

Brazilian users are very active in social media platforms and Brazil ranks fifth among top countries on Twitter. I love Twitter to seek events in the real world and to engage with people with similar interests.  It is also a key tool to quickly spread the word about the museums, engaging new and old audiences!

2. Why did your museum registered to the MW?

The participation of 18 museums of Sao Paulo’s  State Secretariat of Culture in the MW 2015 aims to promote the diversity and richness of our collections in a fun and engaging way, which will certainly widen their reach. Our collections cover a wide variety of areas such as art, design, history, ethnography, soccer, science and the portuguese language. Let´s all speak up for Sao Paulo and Brazilian Museums!
