Specialising in Fun Stuff On The Internet™ – and alongside my writing work – I’m a freelance digital creative/content producer.
I am currently part of the creative team at wonderful social media agency That Lot – creating content and generating ideas for big social media accounts (including jokes for the likes of Have I Got News For You and content for IHG Hotel group). I was also the lead writer on their comedy politics podcast, Strong & Stable – which made both The Guardian and The Independent‘s lists of The Best Podcasts Of 2017.
Previous to that, I created, commissioned, wrote and edited articles, videos, pictures, homepages, social media posts, blog posts, newsletters and more for The Huffington Post, AOL, Standard Issue, BBC Radio 4, BT.com, MSN, UKTV, GoodToKnow and others. As Comedy Editor of The Huffington Post UK for three years, I also constantly scoured the internet to find the most shareable, joyful and funny content (a hard job, but someone’s got to do it).
I’m experienced in managing social media accounts, launching and running Huffington Post UK Comedy on Twitter and Facebook (bringing it up to 30k followers and 145k likes, and not just because I posted a lot of cat videos), and running those of my local Labour Party.
I started the #BritishThreatLevels Twitter hashtag, I made Buzzfeed’s list of 100 Tweets That Made British People Piss Themselves in 2017 and I managed to make ‘Woman Gives Birth To Baby’ more popular than the real story of the birth of Prince George (on the Huffington Post, at least). You can find me on Twitter at @AndreaMann.
