On March 3, I got an message that the Beastie Boys were following my Empoprises Twitter account @empoprises.
So I went to @beastieboys to check it out.
The following/followers numbers looked like they were in reasonable balance, which was a good sign.
One of the tweets linked to material at http://paulsboutique.beastieboys.com/, which was another good sign, although the site didn't explicitly mention the Twitter account.
However, a Coed Magazine post did.
So, Beastie Boys, what'cha want? (In addition to promoting "Paul's Boutique," of course.) Here's the March 2 post:
Check us out on Quicksilver's Race to S.K.A.T.E. http://bit.ly/racetoskate
So I checked them out. Again there's an album promotion, along with this text:
Every Friday during the Month of March at 7:00PM Eastern (4:00PM Pacific) Quiksilver will upload a video of a different Quiksilver pro doing five tricks. Your job is to film yourself doing those same five tricks earning yourself one letter per trick spelling S.K.A.T.E.
Of course, if I had been paying attention to this @lutheranlucciol tweet I would have known this a few days ago.
I guess tech isn't an organic joke (the Twitter analytics of @empoprises and what this means for Ontario Emperor's "Salad") - I thought I'd peek into the analytics for my @empoprises Twitter account, and I spent a bit of time analyzing the audience insights. Insights are available...
