The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the thirty-fourth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
If you’re a musician and enjoy being able to name your own price when selling your music, merch and digital downloads, then the information found here should most definitely catch your attention.
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of San Francisco based music publishing platform, Bandcamp (@Bandcamp) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who can boast having made more than $21m for their artists since 2008, with over $1.2m in the last (30) days alone.
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who can boast having made more than $21m for their artists since 2008, with over $1.2m in the last (30) days alone” in the same sentence.
