Week #4 – All a Twitter

30 Sep

This is week four of Social Media and SMET!, and so far it’s not that bad. This week we talked about Twitter and how companies are using their account. Well I really don’t find all the hoopla about twitter; it’s just another phase I guess. I like the way my teacher explained it she told us when she was in school not that long ago her teacher said it was “Facebook on Crack” I totally believe that. But anyways, I choose GM CANADA to analyzes the way they are using there twitter account.

I went back six months ready there twits, and so far they missed the first three days of April but on the fourth is was about a contest “Winsdays”  Answer the trivia  and win a Autographed photos of 2011 Rogers Cup Champions, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams.   That was OK but then there are no twits till the eighteenth of that month, and with more trivia. They do an alright job with twitter account  but there just too many gaps with in day of using their account. They do have some good twits with info and services for the public. I like the one about your car seat, teaching parents how to install their seats correctly and when the car seat would expiry . They also do a pretty good job at promoting new cars coming out but that is there job.

There is not one month that they twit every single day of the month, In my opinion GM is such a big company that there is no reasons to have those many gaps in their day to day use of their twitter account. On the other hand I can also say that they do make it up with their trivia give a- ways, everyone likes free stuff.
