So does caribou have a twitter? The answer may surprise you. In fact, it’s quite surprising when you find out how many times this question is being asked online. There is an active group of people that are asking the question “Do you have a Twitter?”. To be honest with you, I can’t see why anyone would want to use it if they didn’t need to. But let’s look at this more closely shall we?
Caribou are not social media users. They don’t use Facebook, MySpace, or any of the other social networking sites that are so prevalent today. This means that for the most part, the people asking the question “Do you have a Twitter” aren’t even aware that there is such a thing. They think that since these other sites are generally used by people in their private lives, they don’t want to add another site onto their already overflowing list of social networking sites. Unfortunately, caribou are quite different.
To be fair, caribou do spend some time on Facebook. But what they do a lot of that time doing is posting pictures of their cute calves from time to time. It seems like the only time they spend on Twitter is to post updates about their activities, such as the day’s fishing trip or the night’s fishing trip in Alaska. It seems that they don’t even really like the concept of using social networking sites as a marketing tool.
Of course, you can’t really blame caribou for this. As cute as their horns are, most people find them way too adorable. In addition to that, it can be hard to ignore the repetitive nature of their sound. No matter how hard you try, the same song will play over again. For many people, that just isn’t catchy.
So how does caribou change the idea? Well, instead of having to constantly update their status on the site, caribou simply set up their account to only give information when they’re away from home. This way, people get to know the true feelings of the animal without being subjected to the incessant “Tweet Twits” routine. That way, people get to see the real person behind the furry fur. What better way to get to know someone than to actually meet them? And while it might not solve all of your problems, it’s definitely worth trying.
At the end of the day, caribou are simply doing what animals do. They use social networking sites as a way to let people know the truth. They’re not trying to make money or promote themselves. It’s only human nature that we sometimes abuse that nature.
