Sherwood Wants Twitter Followers Too

Posted by - 08:16 AM on 08/26/09
If Sherwood gets 5000 followers on twitter, they will post the track listing to QU and will post a new song from the record.

or you could just give people the tracklisting and new song?
i don't get why bands want so many followers on twitter. Or why they use it as a bribe for new music.

I find this whole thing incredibly stupid. First off Sherwood should come up with their own ideas since Cartel already did this. Second, who gives a shit about twitter, just give the fans a new song and the tracklisting for the new record. This twitter stuff is stupid. Or do bands consider themeselves cooler if they have followers on twitter. I'm in a band and I wouldn't give a crap about that I would just give fans tracklistings and new songs.

haha true, the album will probably leak before 5000 is reached anyway.

bands have been doing this for a while so sherwood aren't copying cartel. twitter is an excellent promotional tool and after all they're selling a product. doesn't mean i think it's "cool" but it's understandable and makes sense.

I wish a band would just say:
"If 5,000 people delete their Twitter accounts, [insert band name here] will release a song for free download."

I find this quite unnecessary. Its like they're dangling this new song and track listing slightly out of the reach of eager fans, and making them do silly things to get it. Much rather see this new album info revealed at a comfortable pace instead of throwing in these lousy and pointless roadblocks to get there. I dunno, thats just what I think.
