I'm skeptical on Twitter. Very skeptical. Old man Chris doesn't get it. But Drew, Jordan, Twig and Josh Howard (and reader DMN) insist that I join. Hell, they started a hashtag #getchrisontwitter.
They really want this for some reason.
So, alright, I'll make a deal. I see the reason for having a Facebook page, but not a Twitter, so I'll split the difference. We have about 615 followers on Facebook right now. If we get to 700 before playoffs start, I'll join Twitter and participate as a Twitter'er like I was born to tweet.
So now, you all have a way to #getchrisontwitter. I know most people don't care, but you'll make the rest of the team's day. Only 85 more people have to follow us to make it happen. Click the below picture for our page.
Do it. Tell you're friends. And their friends too. Make Drew happy. #getchrisontwitter.
Twitter serves the same purpose as Facebook only I think it has a broader reach. People are more lowly to follow you on twitter than FB. Look at my twitter, I have it set to automatically throw out a link to every article we right to all my followers as well as anyone searching the hashtag #redwings or #nhl and I don't have to manually do any of that. It's also a much better way to talk to readers, bloggers and players. Not to mention all news breaks on twitter first
@Jordan_Reis My boss summed it up when he first got me to join Twitter; Facebook is good for keeping in contact with people you know, Twitter is good for keeping in contact/following people/services you don't know (personally). It's also best for real time updates/searches.
You've already gotten another 9 likes on Facebook since this was posted. And Twitter provides more direct, and often hilarious interaction. Ask Twig, when he had the early-posting snafu he contacted me on Twitter to provide more information about it. Plus you get to see the interesting tweets from hockey players. During the trade deadline, I was refreshing constantly.
So....in order to get you on Twitter (I don't use it either), you want more followers on Facebook? Why don't you get more followers on Twitter (or whatever it's called there) so that you will join Twitter?
