An ok thing to do?
that's what company Twitter feeds are there for! But do a proper complaint rather than a rant.
that their current print campaign for Virgin Media is awful and has made me angry. I want to expand but don't want to look like a loon. Waiting for their reply...
(and good work contacting the marketing agency rather than the company, most people wouldn't think to do that)
otherwise it's an incredibly stupid thing to do and you deserve to get sued for defamation.
Personally, as a lover of biscuits and television engineers, it offended me.
If I'm going to give one of their engineers a biscuit it'll be of my own volition. Fuck them if they're now expecting biscuits.
Also, 'When we say we're fast, we're lying'. DAMN STRAIGHT.
O2 sent me several messages trying to sort it out.
BT messaged me apologising for the delay and explained that they don't run the OpenReach part of the business, but would try to expedite it.
Problem sorted and free stuff the next day
so not sure what I'll get out of it if anything. Maybe some biscuits.
In my eyes
When going to a fancy dress shindig as Elton John.
no good came of it, they're bastards.
Counting down the days until my contract is up. About 481 days :(
AMAZING. £10 a month instead of what was meant to be £15 and normally ended up being £50.
especially if it's @cardiffbus
If it's going to be worth it then they will find you via searches.
My experience with BT is that you only get things sorted by talking to their Twitter. I think it's because that's run by a small bunch of intelligent technical types.
the other day, asking "when are you going to fix my (insert technical problem)."
They fixed it in five minutes. They are a huge company so I was quite impressed.
So I then mentioned them saying "thanks for fixing my problem promptly, great service as always."
It works both ways.
However, what's with all the music bloggers that think it's OK to Tweet saying "bands, send me your stuff", then use up the next twenty minutes saying "OMG, these soundcloud links are so shit."
They must that by doing so, every band that's just sent them something will think they were talking about them.
I'm detecting a genuine and widespread contempt for bands nowadays, especially via Twitter. As if their very existence is deserving of derision, should they not float your particular boat.
And heaven forbid they drop you an email asking you to check out their stuff.
Also, people who mention someone just to tell them they are going to unfollow them. Get some class.
are like "Just recieved THE most embarrassing press release/link/request, oh my days! Bad vibes!" Poor bands :(
I had to stop following loads of bloggers because it was hurting my soul, seeing it all unfold. Five years ago, I'd have been that naive, not-ready-to-send-material-out yet but overly enthusiastic musician and it would have ruined my week if I'd read something like that, even if I wasn't sure it was about me.
I saw one blogger invite submissions for his weekly round up or whatever, then say "oh, shit bands like (insert a few bands I'd never heard of), don't bother sending your stuff again."
Someone pulled him and said "bit harsh?" and his response...
"I haven't got the time to sift through layers of shit from desperate bands."
He didn't appreciate the irony of that defence after soliciting submissions on a social network.
And "desperate" seems to be a byword for "band I don't like and therefore won't with."
I'm sure he's just on Twitter to act like the pope of chilli town in front of girls.
