Furry teens twitter (proposal)
« on: November 11, 2012, 07:47:32 pm »
I was thinking that it would be vary cool if furry teens had a official twitter account. It could be an alternative way to tell people about sight information/status and get bug reports in and out. It would also be a cool way to help get furry news and other fun furry stuff to the user community. (I wouldn't mind helping out if you do like the idea). Alternatively it would also be a good way to promote FT to other potential users. Let me know what you think!   :lol-fox:

I was thinking about this too, though I'm not really sure we have enough ~news~ to warrant a Twitter

True, though it could work off a retweet kinda thing, drawing from FNN, Kage, anthrocon and other major furry figures/conventions. Maby references to interesting content on FT. I'm not overly sure what what would go on it to be honest I just like the idea :).

It does sound like a great idea. We do have a bit of news, so it might start small, but it should get bigger after awhile.

This is something that's been on my mind for quite awhile.  I hesitated in the past, because as Panda said, I'm not sure we have enough going on to warrant a Twitter account.  But if people want to see this happen, we can definitely make it happen.

If you want it to relay server/site status info, I'll need access to it, but otherwise I won't likely post much to it.  I can be described as a Twitter power-user, though, and social media is part of my career, so I'll gladly give guidance to whoever's spearheading this.

I'm adding a poll to this thread to gauge interest.

I would definately want to follow it... But I'm a "closet fur" as they say so if one of my friends decides to be nosy and look at what I'm following and they'll probably notice that I'm following furry teens (and probably think nothing of it, but you never know).

I'm thinking about making a furry twitter though, where I could follow that page (if it gets created) and all of you guys. I don't know, we'll see. But yeah if we can find things to update the page with, I'm in favour of it. So for now, I'm not going to vote in this poll...

Also, here's a list of ideas for what to do with it.

-Server status announcements (provided by me, but extremely rare)
-Site news (fairly rare, though I think Panda and crew are working to increase staff activity)
-Noteworthy threads or posts
-Articles and material created by members
-Advertising (reach out to young furs who are on Twitter but not already here)
-General furry stuff:  Event announcements, mostly
-Any posts of interest to the site's demographics (13-20 year olds with an above-average likelyhood of being a bit on the nerdy side)

...That's about all I can think of.

Darn right we are >U

The Pinkie Pie side of me wants to do Happy Birthday tweets for the more active members, but I realize most other people don't care and it'd probably get annoying v-v

I would care! Lol I love all you guys. The more I think about this, the more likely I am to follow it. I think I'll make a furry twitter page

Sure, I don't see any reason not to. I don't have a Twitter account, but I'll probably bookmark it or eventually create my own Twitter account (I've been considering doing that). It will surely come in handy. It might offer some interesting news, announcements, and site feedback. Even if it isn't hugely active, I still think it can be of some use.

Essentially twitter is an online public announcement system. You create short (less than 140) character messages and then submit it to a feed . People can then read or reply to your message. People often use it to tell others what thay ate for lunch.... But some feeds are good (nasa, cons and news that kind of thing .) depends on how you want to use it.

Oh, why not. It seems like a good idea, if ft had a twitter what content would be posted?

I was thinking thinking things like sight status (when avaliable),  birthdays maby, staff info (comming and goings), retweet (re postings) of furry news. I don't see it being super active maby two or three posts a week. Natasha posted a list of what she thought it would be used for about a week ago.

For this to work, the site would need a very active "tweeter" who would report new members, problems, bugs and updates on the site.

I would love to see this happen.  I love Twitter.
Remember that smile, the one you wore with such beauty and grace?  Where has it gone?  What has happened to put you in this miserable, lonely place?  Smile for me, even it may be the last time I see.  A picture I will take not for myself, no. A picture for the entire world to embrace the happiness you once shared with me.  Just smile...

Maybe we can get gage to do it, seems like he's always on. Also has the record for the most time spent on the site, topping over 161 days.
