Twitter users?

How many people utilize Twitter?

I've been thinking of (with Council permission) establishing an MECCG Twitter account with regular updates.

Ideas include:
Card giveaways
Trivia contests
Council announcements

Anyone think this could potentially promote the game and organization?

Thanks,
G.

There have been newsletters (fanbased) before, and even funny contests with prizes and other promotional activities. It all depends on people willing to keep it going.

Twitter/FB seem well suited for very low energy imput, low threshold activities, such as information dispersal. Here the issue is more to keep things central.
Some FB meccg accounts for certain communties already exist of course...

And even so, there are those without FB/Twitter. There is the danger of moving entirely into that domain, as some seem to have the habit of not existing anymore outside FB/Twitter etc. A simple webpage like this one is apparently too exhausting to visit, but we cannot abandon it, because of dinosaurs like myself (sorry!)
