Twitter stats

The band likes to stay in touch through social media, especially twitter with the fans. They’re rather appreciative for them:

“Without you there would be no reason to be us” (Glen)

Danny even went further: “Without you there would be no internet” … Why, thank you.

They even took the time to thank for our the mad tweeting/voting for the MTV contest:

Glen plays the biggest role in this area, he’s the one jumping on twitter most of the times, although Mark is known to have done a tweet spree or two. Their facebook and instagram pages are linked to the twitter account which appears to be the band’s main communicational method.

Myself and Danny just got Localised!!! 😉 G http://t.co/gXCoIjqiqv

The band’s other tradition including twitter it to make twitpic in every gig and post it later. But that in itself deserves a whole separate entry!

PS: Danny has his own account that was opened for the purpose of The Voice UK but he’s rather inactive on it. With him not being a coach any more might lead to a phase-out for TheScript_Danny.
