It's a generational thing to maintain.

Think of Twitter as a 140-character Associated Press or UPI news feed that everyone can receive at any time - or can use to transmit as a one-person news bureau (your challenge is finding the followers).

It's not tough to maintain but we'll need to come up with fresh and meaningful content. Let's see how many followers we have by the Spring Fling (April 5) and by then I'll bet Swampy will know the level of attraction. I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised. Maybe even very surprised.

And no, I don't tweet. Or twerk (which would be hysterical to see).

But i know that Twitter is just one more arrow in a quiver of good communications.

Apparently we're doin' somethin' right. We don' have a huge follerin' yet, but we do have some rather large entities in the fly fishin' community who are follerin' us an' "retweeting" a few of our tweets. This happened frequently enough today that we got the follerin' notice:



When you make a "tweet", if you type "#flyfishing" somewhere in the message it'll allow that message to be spotted in a group of other related messages. Apparently, our tweets garnered more attention in that genre today, and someone has decided to make a little game of it and keep tabs.

Not bad. Not bad at all.

Setup an Instagram account as well. Then get an account with HootSuite to manage Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram all from one location.

Actually, I would LOVE to me able to keep up with your activities on the river on a by the minute basis! Of course, I have ulterior motives - like catching fish.

Like said above, Instagram is really big now. And I think it is pretty easy. A LOT easier than Twitter. I had a twitter, but I found it too dang complicated. I can give an Instagram 101. Do ya'll know about hashtags yet?

#trout #bigtrout #Hooch2High #southerntrout #madfishinskillz #hoochtrout

So here's the order of what the kids did...Facebook, then Twitter, Instagram.
