Default Anyone home at Twitter?

Social media is a huge part of reaching your target audience.
So what's the deal with some of the main players at Twitter!? One would think they would
be all over it. I was really surprised at the amount of effort the three below put into Twitter.


On the ball.

AMA - 663 tweets, 2,424 followers
Model Airplane News - 1,435 tweets, 2421 followers
Horizon Hobby - 1,135 tweets, 2605 followers
Nitro Planes - 3,690 tweets, 1,633 followe
Tower - 357 tweets, 2,086 followers
RCU - 127 tweets, 1,498 followers


Asleep at the controller. Hello!!!.....anyone home out there? You know it's free right?

Sig Mfg - 0 tweets, 0 followers
Futaba - 6 tweets, 472 followers
OS Engines - 2 tweets, 582 followers

Wuz up with that?

Let me see if I got this straight...you guys are actually poo-poo'ng a social network site.........(ready for it).......on a social network site.
....................Really!?

You do know most of those companies advertise or communicate somehow to their user base using RCU. & yet you hold some unfounded
respect on them cause they don't utilitize something like twitter! You type responses out as if they were to do something like post dicsounts,
sales, new product info or RC news that that would be like them selling their souls to the devil.

Paaaleeese.

Your totally right, no need for drama. Hope Airbus and Buck pick up on it. That was s simple post showing that some RC companies don't use
twitter. Responses like the ones from Buck and Airbus are completly hypocritical. Especially from a guy with over 7,000 posts here.
Just not seeing how, because they don't utilize something other than RCU, that they are more respectable.
140 characters ruffles some poeples feathers I guess.

I have a twitter account, rarely use it. I think I did 3 posts before I decided it did not interest me. I use facebook to communicate with a few friends but prefer email or telephone communications. I do not look at many commercial profiles on facebook.

I have a lot of posts on RCU, and usually enjoy reading the forums, but I really prefer talking about airplanes with the guys at the field.
