Now that's how theme parks should use social media
Written by Robert Niles
I've been following several theme parks and fan websites on Twitter for months now, both to spread the word of what we are doing on Theme Park Insider and to look for leads on stories we should be covering. (Our feed is at twitter.com/ThemePark, BTW.)Tweet
But SeaWorld Orlando's launched the most entertaining official park Twitter feed I've yet seen: One from Shamu.
Written in the killer whale's voice, the feed includes such snarky nuggets as "4 otter babies at SeaWorld. Cute. But can you imagine how many it would take to make a decent meal?" and "Overheard talk today of 'killer whale breeding program.' Program? Where’s the romance?"
Fun stuff. I hope that the SeaWorld PR staff, er, I mean, Shamu, can keep up the pace. Now, how about a follow for TPI, ya big guy?
