How To Use Social Media
There are very few indie rock personalities on Twitter. In some ways, maybe that’s a good thing, but if you’re on Twitter and you’re following your favorite artists, it’s obnoxious to see the same tour announcements, buy links, and generic thank you’s to random cities across the globe. And it’s frustrating when all you want in life is a Tweet response from Lykke Li but you get nothing.
Rappers, on the other hand? Completely different story. Just look at the following:
