Well, forgive me for being one of the few billions left who does not use Facebook or Twitter.
I'm not certain why that deserved tones of snark, to be honest.
If you choose to deprive yourself of news and updates by not using two of the largest social platforms, so be it, but it doesn't really show the moral ascendancy over those who do which you are implying, just a self-imposed limiting of choice; we try to take the time to provide timely updates in what spare time we have, which may not allow for the news to be carried in all of them, and it's worth mentioning that from time to time, as some may
wish to avail themselves of those updates, but don't know about them.
To denigrate the effort just because the outlets are not to your taste seems to be a less than constructive course.
We really don't blow our own trumpets around here very often, and said nothing about it at the time, but getting to break a scoop on Twitter (which may not be used by "billions", but still is quite far reaching) for the benefit of Tintinologist members and followers takes a bit of work and effort, so pointing out the advantages of using all available channels seems only fair.
We certainly don't demand that people follow all the Tintinologist feeds, nor would we want to, but there are
benefits for those so doing.
