After seeing Match.com on Twitter yesterday I decided to see what dating sites and other related brands/people/blogs are on Twitter. I started by checking out all the people who OnlineBootyCall follows, because that seemed like a logical place to start. OBC has had a dedicated social media person monitoring Twitter since July 2008, bootylicious.
I’m http://twitter.com/daveevans, I started on Twitter back in Feb 2007. Working on this post I realized once again that I lead a bit of a dual life between the social media crowd, online dating and all of the other Internet stuff I’m involved in. I tend to keep things somewhat neatly compartmentalized, which tends to collapse in social spaces like Facebook, Twitter and Brightkite. Here’s to worlds colliding.
I wanted a list of online dating tweeps, and had to start somewhere. This list is just the tip of the iceberg, Leave your Twitter link in the comments and I’ll add you to a the list.
I’ll talk more about Twitter best practices for online dating sites in another post.
The last thing I want to see is dating sites fail when it comes to social media. Until tonight I have not been impressed, but after spending a few hours on Twitter tonight something tells me that Twitter could be the vehicle by which online dating is going to embrace social media.
Online Dating Twitter Accounts
http://twitter.com/DownToEarthDate (looks like they got online about 9 hours ago)
http://twitter.com/CoachChelle (coaches are really good at getting followers, learn from them)
http://twitter.com/eHarmony_jack (is this really eHarmony?)
Favorite Twitter username I found while researching this post: HisBoysCanSwim. She has more followers than all dating sites combined and really knows how to draw interest with contests, fun blog too.
What’s your Twitter account and who else should be added to the list?
