Yep, the fansite is now on Twitter! DT and I will be tweeting stuff relevant to the band. He set up the account and grabbed the bull by the horns and has gotten everything ready to go. If you ain't got a twitter account now you got a good reason to get one.

If you do have one you can follow us @mofrofans

Yeah, I saw that...  Odd response to say the least...  Don't know how they get Ron Paul out of Mofrofans, but I'm sure there are wierder things out there...  Either way, it got us another follower.  Keep Spreading the Mofro!

It is because I tweeted from my "political" account which has a JJ/Country Ghetto snake on it as well as Ron Paul --one of my 1,920 followers saw that and asked if JJ and Moro  fans like Ron Paul

I am a "follower" now. I've never tweeted myself, but I do have an account & will occasionally check it out. Now, I will have a reason to twitter more!

Good questions Sunshine.  Will it have different info?  Probably not, being that with twitter you are limited to 140 characters as compared to what you can do with this website or facebook.  We are looking to basically use it as an extension of the website to draw people in that have not heard of or don't know the website exists.  It will also be helpful in promoting the band and everyone in it, i.e. Greyhounds, Art, Daryl, etc...   And while it won't have any different info than the website, it will most likely have the info posted on it before it is posted on here.  It's easier to tweet something than to come one here and post.  Phone apps and access to twitter make it what it is, an easy access media portal that can be accessed pretty much anywhere these days.  Hope that answers your question.  That pretty much sums up why we decided to start one for the site and run with it.  Not just to reach out to people and promote the site, but to make sure that do everything we possibly can to promote the band and JJ's music.

After thinking about it, there will probably be different info on twitter than on here in that there will be things posted on twitter that never make thier way over to here or in a thread.  So, in those cases, yes.  We posted on there that there was some new merchandise on the band site, some new hats and the 2010 NYE Poster.  Didn't think to come on here and post something like that.  Was thinking more along the lines of notifying followers and giving them the info so they go and check out the band site, merchandise area to be exact.  Alot of it will be announcing show times and details, for both JJ Grey & Mofro, and anyone related, Greyhounds, Daryl, etc... in order to promote the shows and hopefully get someone who didn't know or wasn't planning on going to check it out.  Especially Daryl and the Greyhounds, they can use all the promoting they can get.  The rest will be used for just general info, breaking news, and provide a way to easily access that information if you are unable to make your way onto the FanSite...

Note:  In no way is the twitter account being used to overshadow the website or replace it in any way.  First of all, it's not capable of doing so, and second of all, it is merely being used as a tool to help promote and expand the website.  I'm excited about it and I know Clay is, although hopefully not too excited, I don't think the old bags heart can take too much excitement.  That's why he stopped watching Matlock and only watches the Golden Girls now, but that's another story...

You know DT, I thought that was a real good post until that last part. You are SO wrong! Golden Girls got old. Now I'm into reruns of Three's Company.

That said, yes I'm very excited about this. As more and more people are tweeting I think we're keeping up with the times. And even if you choose to not get an account you can still follow the tweets at the box above. It refreshes itself constantly. You can also go online and see the tweets HERE


The main way most people use it is on their phone. You get real time tweets and can comment back. DT and I will both be tweeting when we go from shows and I anticipate we'll have a guest tweeter from time to time. (It won't be Richard though.)

don't think I have the time to follow yet another social thing online.  I have no access to apps or anything like that, I just hope I won't miss out on any important news or info.

Back to the subject at hand...I've put a "follow" button at the very top of the page. You can read tweets from there. You don't have to have a twitter account to lurk. (I may move the button somewhere else. I'm experimenting with it at the moment.)

I've not tested it on any browsers other than IE. If anyone can't see it or it looks funky or something then please let me know.

First of all, I'm not sure whether your comment warranted a response, but you got one...  Turn that frown up side down!
