Twitter and Floorball - part one

We have in an old post slammed the IFF for them not being too good on Twitter.  We have further had several posts up on how well countries like Singapore and Malaysia are doing on Twitter.
Today I say that the IFF is the main and champion communicator on Twitter in the Floorball subject. That is as it should be - right - and I am very happy with that. We here can not keep up with them and IFF grow day by day in the way they should - as the governing body for Floorball - good work!
The same goes for Singapore, the feed is constant and there is no doubt that folks over there likes Floorball. Even if one big single communicator has not emerged yet from them - it is more kind of well.. twitter...

The strength of Twitter is the speed of new information and its time line and short messages. The back draw with Twitter is that too many messages gets lost (no one reads them). As I compare with other social media Facebook - it seems obvious that Facebook reach out to a much higher number of people - and have an enormous potential to reach even further. But as always it is hard to compare Apples and Pears. And this post only discuss Twitter. Perhaps we'll try to take on Facebook later on...

Let us just jolt down 10 important active communicators on Twitter for Floorball (this is the word N.B. not the Geographic location):

The two last relates to this blog - but if You are serious about following Floorball you must make your own list.
This list above is not perfect - it is only an indication of what we find good in this matter, and not all made it to my list this time.
The golden rule to make some serious imprint in the flow of tweets and to make Floorball stand out a bit more - relies on a few techniques: Tweet, Re-Tweet, Star other Tweets, do mentions or Follow Fridays.
I seriously want Singapore to start to re-tweet a bit more since the have the flow of good everyday messages from the Floorball reality. Remember to be courteous too - and that goes for all of us.
One more thing have you seen, that you may tweet images too at Twitter, right?

Hey, let me know if I am wrong somewhere, ok?

Next time I will aim to discuss how I suspect the new Olympic Organisation in London for the Summer games 2012 are working to fast get a very high penetration on Twitter. In part three I will dive into the core of why Floorballers must be on Twitter. It is for the sake of Floorball - not for Twitter.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
