    Coffee Tweeting

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hey All,

    Lets get something started on Twitter. For those of you that have an account, tweet your favourite variety of coffee e.g. Flat White with 2 sugars with the hashtag #AussiesLoveCoffee. This would read:

    Flat White with 2 sugars #AussiesLoveCoffee.

    Otherwise head to twitter.com to set up an account. Lets show the world we are serious about our daily caffeine hit!

    Thanks

    P.S. So Excited* :D

    :o A couple of harsh but possibly fair replies. This is just a way to get everyone to see this, not just people who visit the forum.

    Re: Coffee Tweeting

    With well over 18k members, Id suggest those who use twitter and havent found CS arent looking.

    Yes but its more about it going international. I thought this was a good idea but obviously not *sigh* :(. Sorry for wasting your time and space on the forum.

    We already are grasshopper.*Plenty of CSers tweet far more relevant and interesting content than what they order when in the queue. Perhaps you may need to add to the list you choose to follow...*

    Yes but only to 18k members + guests. Twitter has 300 million users. Thats (doing maths in head) about 15k to 20k times as big as CS. Just give it a chance.

    Hey, baristajnr,

    Rejection of an idea, especially one you feel excited about, can be deflating and even painful, but the pain is worse if you take it personally.* I dont think any of the replies were meant to be hurtful at all, even if thats how they feel to you. "That which doesnt kill you makes you stronger" (Id acknowledge who said that if I knew), so if youre interested in coffee, stick around.* There is much to learn here, Grasshopper (if you dont understand that term of endearment, Google Kung Fu, grasshopper and David Carridine).* :)

    The replies are from people of a different age group to you, and we dont see social media the same way your age group does.* Our viewpoint is not better or worse, its just different.

    IMNSHO, the hashtag #AussiesLoveCoffee would be more useful for tweeting short reviews of coffee establishments rather than what people drink, but I probably wouldnt resurrect my twitter account to check it out. My preference would be to use the Beanhunter app on my iPhone, but others would see it differently.

    Enjoy the journey.

    Cheers, Andrew

    Re: Coffee Tweeting

    From memory the demographic of Coffee Snobs members is a little older than you.

    But their are members your age as well.

    Its not that were afraid of "new" things like Twitter.
    It just might not be as high a priority for a few of us.

    Now as for me, Ive coded my own Myspace page (you might be to young to remember that place) and I use Twitter (but not the right way according to my son) and Facebook.

    Ive found some young peoples attitude to us old farts is that we dont understand the internet.

    Well I have news for them...people older than me invented the internet.

    When youve read and written a few more posts youll realise that CS is bigger than your numbers suggest and as far as Im concerned, I dont care if Twitter has 300 million users.
    Do a search of nearby tweets so youll see tweets from complete strangers.
    A lot of what they write (the other 299,999,998 of them) is garbage.

    I think CS posts are weighted towards the quality end of the scale.

    Now excuse me, Im known for my succinctness and youve caused me to write one of my very rare longer posts.




    P.S. I drink Flat Whites but you shouldnt need sugar in good coffee. ;)

    Hi and welcome,
    Stay and read baristajnr. And post when you want to make comment. None of us can bite really.

    Bigger aint always better.

    Plus your stats reflect registered users not individual users nor active users. Im not disputing them, just pointing out potential mis-interpretations of numbers.

    Online discussion forums existed long before internet and web. This forum itself must be close the pre-dating twitter. Not saying which will last - forum post or tweet - but I know which way I bet on.

    Think about how you found the site. It might have been a tweet. Or it might have been a google seach.
    Try searching both for aussie coffee or coffee australia and see which yields a better result.

    By all means tweet whatever you see fit just dont expect all CS to follow.
    So far this post equals 6+ tweets btw.

    Hi again baristajnr,
    Youve done nothing wrong except maybe mis-read your audience. Welcome to that particular club.

    Im going to resurrect a new age old fart expression. "Build it and they will come."
    Starting tweeting with a coffee related hashtag and if we want follow then we will.

    There are people much the same age as yourself.

    As Thundergod says in his post above - its not about age but more about why we are members of CS.
    CS and Twitter simply play different roles. There are already threads on CS that cover the sort of thing I think you are interested in doing with Twitter. They just do it forum style.

    You could always start a new thread asking for younger CSers to post their thoughts.
    Just remember this *is* the internet!!
