Who's Running The Twitter Account?

    Not a complaint or anything, but I think the Twitter account could do a lot better at advertising the site. Maybe that will help drive traffic a little.

    EDIT: I might be able to offer my services if you'd like.

    It's generally the mods.
    Send me and Aaron a PM with your thoughts and we can chat.

    Thanks.

    I've got some ideas I can bounce off the both of you, maybe this weekend once I have some time. New job's kicking my ass.

    I should have something mildly coherent typed up by this weekend, just busy.

    I don't think a PM will be necessary, I'll just post it here.

    I'll just say the Twitter account has been under-utilized in the promotion of this board. Countdowns are great, but there's a lot more to this place that should be promoted. Who Am I, Theme Songs, The user music threads, the Fantasy Leagues (our NFL league is still sitting at 9 teams), plus you could use it to live tweet certain events on Satellite radio (I don't have satellite, and likely never will so I won't be involved there). There are also several apps like Crowdfire that you could use to promote the Twitter account, which in turn promotes the board.

    I think I've been on some form of this site (DRC and SBS) for a decade now, and would like to see it continue.

    And I'm still not a big fan of the current forum theme. The brown does nothing for me. I'd rather see bright colors, lighter themes, and yes, even a dark/black theme, at least more variety than what's available now. And more 'toys' on the forum like a portal, with actual birthday listings. Create something that will want to keep people coming back beyond the usual cast of regulars.

    In the meantime, anybody can tweet any post if they have a Twitter account.
    All you have to do is click the little number at the bottom of the post, and it will give you a bunch of options on how you can share it via several different social sites.

    I don't have those numbers at the bottom of each post

    Nothing next to the Like, Quote, and Reply?
    It should be the sequential number of each post in the thread.

    For the fun of it, when I log into safari to visit DRC on my iPhone, I don't see the #'s either. That why I stick to Tapatalk, I don't see the #'s either but you can share in there.

    Tapatalk has a share. If you highlight the post then click the three little dots in the upper right corner, it gives you the share options. I don't have twitter on my phone though, so I'm not sure how/if it works.
