Do you follow your favorite bands/artists on twitter? Like their Facebook pages? Me too. I think one of the best aspects of all these social networking sites is that we can connect with people that we would otherwise never get to, including our favorite musicians. Which is why I was so surprised to read this article on CNET titled New Music Acts to Labels: ‘We Won’t Tweet.’
Where do you stand on the issue? Do you expect bands to make the effort to connect with their fans online or should they leave it up to the music labels and focus on their music?
I’ll leave you with this odd video from the reigning queen of twitter, Lady Gaga, who clearly takes engaging with her fans online very seriously ; )
