Twitter, a microblogging service that lets users send and read “tweets” up to 140 characters long, was launched in 2006 and has nearly 555 million active accounts, including AGA which joined the conversation in 2009.
AGA tweets throughout the day to inform our followers about our utility members, natural gas headlines, advocacy priorities and much more. Since June 2012, AGA has more than doubled the amount of its followers and nearly tripled the number of new users who follow us each day.
“We believe it is vital to extend the natural gas conversation online,” said AGA President & CEO Dave McCurdy. “Social media platforms like Twitter play an important role in informing the public about the safe and reliable distribution of natural gas. Our members and followers are critical in helping inform and extend this conversation, and we want to thank everyone for their continued support.”
To mark this special occasion, we’ll be giving away a celebration gift pack which includes the AGA 2013 Playbook, baseball cap, notebook, pen and latest edition of American Gas Magazine. Once AGA reaches 10,000 followers, we’ll use the website Random.org to randomly select one recipient from the list of Twitter followers.
