At Content Formula we like to keep an eye on developments within our sector and, now that we’re all merrily tweeting away, I thought I’d do a quick, dirty search of other agency websites to see who else we could follow on Twitter.
I thought that my 20 minutes scanning the NMA Top 100 list would be rewarded with dozens of new accounts to follow, but I was really quite disappointed – out of 113 agencies, I could only find 14 Twitter accounts and a rather lonely Facebook account. This was not quite what I expected from a group who collectively evangelise the cutting edge of web development and often offer social media services. I accept I was only scanning home pages and contact pages, but then if the information isn’t there, then where is it?
It seems I’m not alone in thinking this; Chris Lake wrote an article at e-consultancy.com on the same subject in March, finding only 13 accounts. It seems take-up has not exactly rocketed over the summer months…
If you’re interested, here are the links to the twitter accounts I found. All of them have great updates, so I recommend you check them out. If I’ve missed anyone please leave a comment and a link, and of course don’t forget to add us – @contentformula
