“Rockin’ Robin” of a past generation popularized “Tweets.” Nowadays “Tweets” are less about Bobby Day and more about the online social networking site Twitter.com. It’s difficult to avoid the discussion about and references to Twitter. Your kids are probably Tweeting, a mass of celebrities are Tweeting… are you Tweeting? A “Tweet” is a status update on the Twitter.com microbloging site that allows publishing no more than 140 characters per post. Everything from world views to how many times a user blinked in the past minute are posted… just has to be short and sweet. It’s a quick and easy way to stay connected with those you like and/or admire. And why do we write about Twitter in the A’s Ticket Services blog? Because we’ve taken the plunge too!
Actually, A’s Ticket Services has been active on Twitter for almost a year. Our first post was June 25, 2008. Trend setters anyone? We’ve certainly been more active this season, what with Twitter’s increasing popularity. Our handle is ticketservices and you can find us at twitter.com/ticketservices. On Twitter we hold contests, ask and answer A’s questions, and provide updates on A’s news- mostly from a ticket perspective. The occasional ticket discount offer- or “tweet deals”- pops up too.
There are actually two official Twitter sites for the Oakland A’s. ticketservices and OaklandAs. Each account is updated by a different department at the A’s so you’ll get a different perspective from both. A great place to ask A’s related questions too. Hope you follow. Hope you enjoy. Rock on. Tweet, Tweet, Tweedilly-Tweet!
