Welcome to our first instalment of The Monthly Terra! In this segment we’ll be looking back on the month of activity of the Twitter account and pulling up anything of significance you may have missed during the month. There’s heaps of tweets like fanart RTs that would take me forever to post here, so I encourage you to follow the Twitter yourself if you’re worried about missing anything! This entry came a bit later than planned, but I hope you’ll bear with us! I have no guarantee that this will remain a monthly thing either; it could end up being less or more frequent, we’ll wait and see. So, with introductions sorted, let’s dive in!
