Do You Have a Twitter Account?

posted by on February 24 at 18:41 PM

If you do, then you can now follow Line Out on Twitter! It’s what you’ve all been waiting for, right? I know.

We’ll keep you posted when there are heated debates about Rush and Yes and hot polls about Slats, but mostly we’ll use it to announce any breaking news like if a club shuts down, if a rad band is playing an unannounced show somewhere in the city, or if a big show gets announced (like Radiohead—book that shit dudes!) or canceled.

If you aren’t familiar with Twitter, it’s a pretty cool application—you sign up (for free) and you can send and receive short updates via your phone or computer. You can let people know what you’re up to (if you want). You can choose to follow your friends so you know what they’re up to too. The BBC is on it, NPR is on it, I think even Obama has an account. All updates can be sent to you via e-mail or directly to your phone, so you don’t even have to be near a computer to know the latest.

Don’t worry, if you start following Line Out, you won’t be getting spammed constantly with every post to go up throughout the day. It’ll be a few updates a week at most, and used especially if there’s breaking or exciting news.

Log on to twitter.com to sign up to get your free Twitter account, or click here if you’re already on Twitter and want to start following Line Out (or just want to see more of what it’s all about).
