Twitter, friends, and enemies.

So as many of you may know Twitter is very important to businesses especially Adventure Voyages. It’s one of the fastest ways to communicate with customers and people who are interested in your business. We have 249 followers on Twitter and that number is growing every day! Many people seem very interested in Adventure Voyages, and have been recognized by other cruise lines, travel agencies, and cruise organizations. Some of our most important friends on Twitter include: CruiseMan3000 (Shon) who is a great friend, and has done a lot to promote our business. We appreciate him so much, and enjoy his blog, and his cruise commentary! RCI_fans has also been great to us! They are also large promoters of Adventure Voyages and we love to hear about what is going on at Royal Caribbean from them! Nowwwwww, our enemies. Well I wouldn’t call them enemies, but lets just say we dislike them. Let’s start with our biggest pain, American Cruise Lines. Just typing that brings back memories of talking with them. Wait that can’t be right, because we never got a response from them! I thought them just ignoring our email for an entire month, was just downright rude, and that is why we are no longer doing business with them. They lost out. Now, our newest enemy, and this time we can call them our enemy. Wikipedia. After 5 days of editing and publishing our Wikipedia page, we get a message saying, “Your page has been marked for speedy deletion.” Their explanation was that it advertised too much. Honestly, it wasn’t too bad. So then I ask for permission to edit the page so it can stay up and like 2 hours later, the page has been deleted, and I get a message from one of their moderators saying we deleted it because it failed to explain why it was significant. So obviously I was very angry, and left an angry message on one of their boards. I still haven’t heard back from them. (Who does this remind me of…Oh that’s right, American Cruise Lines.)
