FlightGear has landed on Twitter

Postby Groucho » Fri Feb 04, 2011 4:06 pm

Hi all.

I have set up a FlightGear account on Twitter so the latest news from the FlightGear community can be spread to the world: http://www.twitter.com/flightgearsim. Unfortunately it is labeled flightgearsim as flightgear was already taken by a supplier of flight equipment.

Whatever you would like to share, you have two options to do so:
  • From your Twitter client send a direct twitter message to @flightgearsim (no private message, please). This one will be retweeted to the world
  • Send an email to flightgear@gmx.net but remember the message should fit 140 characters so use them wisely ;)

We can also use this account to periodically send out a short notice that Flight Sim Pro is not affiliated with FlightGear ...

So feel free to start twittering. And do not forget to follow it of course.

I would need as many of those pictures as possible for speeding up my modelling efforts for EDNY.

Hi,

thanks for pointing our attention to this.
I kindly ask everybody with a Twitter account to check from time to time http://twitter.com/search?q=%23FlightGear#search?q=FlightGear. You may find our scammers aggressively announcing FPS. All your help is appreciated to report these users to Twitter as spammers/scammers.

Same works for Youtube, MyVideo, etc.

Thanks in advance to everybody helping out in mitigating the threat to ingenuous users.
Cheers,
Mike

Reported @unitxc as FlightProSim spammer. He tried to let the FlightGear twitter account retweet a PFS scam. Stupid try.

BTW none of the so far reported spam bots has since went out of Twitter business.
