Social Media (Twitter/Mastodon) for event announcements etc.

Post by Rias » Sun May 02, 2021 5:02 pm

I'll come right out and say I generally loathe social media. I know a lot of other people seem to like it, though. I recently resurrected COGG's Twitter (which was never really used) and linked it up to a newly-registered Mastodon account for COGG. They cross-post between each other, so people can subscribe to whichever they prefer (I prefer Mastodon of the two - the Fediverse concept is pretty awesome).

The hope is to announce events to keep people aware of when things are happening, as well as occasional social media posts about major changes/updates.

Mastodon: https://mastodon.online/@COGG

Twitter: https://twitter.com/coggmud

Any other suggestions for putting this stuff to use and engage better with players? Let me know here in this thread.

For those who prefer anti-social media, mastodon has built in rss and atom feeds that should work with any feed reader. Use https://mastodon.online/@COGG.rss for rss or https://mastodon.online/@COGG.atom for atom.
