Twitter is a neat service that a lot of folks use to get updates from their friends and to just stay in touch, all in 140 characters, via email, phone or the web. MAKE has a Twitter feed too, you get updates from MAKE by visiting (or “following” make) at Twitter.
We are trying something new – If you’re a MAKE print/digital edition subscriber you can direct message MAKE at anytime with questions, comments or suggestions. Anything about MAKE really… I think we’re the only “magazine” that is offering support this way, if there are others let me know – I’d like see what’s working and what’s not. So far I’ve seen Comcast, JetBlue use the direct message and the @ replies feature. For fastest results with MAKE “d make yourmessagehere”.
But wait, there’s more! If you happen to be following MAKE on Twitter I will post a discount code each day for the rest of the week that will get you $10 off a MAKE subscription (USA) — so if you’re thinking of subscribing, follow us on Twitter and it could be your lucky day! I’ll wait until the end of the day so you have time to add/follow make. This is likely a one time only promo to test the waters, when it’s over it’s over.
A little note for the current followers of MAKE on Twitter… Twitter was posting duplicate Tweets from our site, we didn’t change anything on our end but we switched to another way of doing this once we saw the multiple message and that seemed to have solved everything, sorry if you received multiple messages.
Oh, last up – We also have CRAFT, HACKS and Maker Faire on Twitter. You can use these for CRAFT subscription support, comments and questions as well Maker Faire support (please direct message if you want immediate help or have questions). During Maker Faire Austin we’ll be Tweeting the entire time with news, events and get togethers!
