SeaWorld Launches Shamu Twitter

Posted on April 15, 2009

SeaWorld's Shamu is on Twitter. You can follow Shamu on Twitter at @RealShamu. Shamu's bio says "I live at SeaWorld. I'm a large, athletic, black and white marine mammal. I'm not THE star of SeaWorld, I'm A star of SeaWorld." A real person is behind the Shamu Twitter just like a real person was behind the Mars Phoenix Twitter that was very popular last year.

When blogging starting getting more commercial several years ago there were many character blogs that emerged. Twitter seems like a much better format for character blogs because of the shorter post length and because it is easier for the character to interact with Twitter users.
