A Chirp and a Beep - yes agaiiin.


We do not want to do this - not Twitter again - oh well.

Why is Twitter important?
The youth - a very valuable target group - tends right now to prefer Twitter over Facebook - this is facts, just been reported by - oh, we forgot who. The emotion from us is that yes Twitter is much more fun and looks a bit more stylish than Facebook.
Twitter just opened up a new policy on pictures - bad or not? We do not know. But images via Instagram nor Facebook will not have a "timeline appearance" on Twitter from now on. Only native twitter images will jump into your stream - and guess what - with images of TEXT - anyone that wants to promote Floorball with more than 140 letters - add a picture to your text, Brutus ;-).
The other thing is that readers first notice tweets with pics in em' - so use them. Let us see what an indent Floorball can do - as in comparison to other sports?

More on Twitter structure!
Well we explained most here http://www.floorballcentral.org/2013/10/more-tricky-twitter-notions.html
and here http://www.floorballcentral.org/2013/10/twitter-is-tricky.html
We missed a few things though. First twitter is a social network where you talk to your followers mainly and not to the whole world so you must be a bit personal in your tone. Some Floorball Twitterers do this very good but others talk like they are doing serious proclamations. We like the personal tone and a heated debate if there is room for one. So toss the gloves or just speak up like at Hyde Park.

Then what is the purpose of using Twitter?
To waste away the time of your life? Maybe? Na, we think there could be several different reasons. Our own reason is to spread the light about Floorball. And if that is your reason too - then let us yet again set one thing straight:
We do believe that Floorball is for all - we also believe that Twitter is for all. So when some parties use twitter to create "subcultures" or limits the information (remember information wants always to be free) to specific groups or codes like by either language, specific names or hashtags - well then it is not for all any longer - since this also creates bubbles of isolation.. And as this happens - we R not using Twitter in the very best way to spread the light about Floorball - and what is worse  - in our opinion, the idea that Floorball is for all - is lost.
So far Twitter does not translate tweets or hashtags and anything beyond two hashtags is waste on Twitter - so please stick with #floorball (for global sharing) and only one more (for local sharing).

Today, Floorball News announced that we as;  for the third consecutive week gained most followers of any other Floorball account in the world on Twitter. First, that is crazy. Second, if you do not do use absolute numbers but relative numbers we would not be in top this week. Third, all other Twitter Floorball accounts must do a very very crappy job. Forth, we think they list us on the wrong list. Fifth, too many companies with labor and capital working for them must do MUCH better to move their Floorball business forward. Sixth, we are uncertain if we will come out on top again. Seventh, the only thing we do is actively unfollow bad accounts and actively follow other Floorballers...
You can do that too!

Our Challenge to you - beat us on Twitter for next week - in any way you want - but first please follow

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!
