While I took two weeks off from my social media outreach practices, I was hoping my most recent solicitation to Virgin Galactic would generate some sort of attention and/or feedback. It was a tweet timely for Christmas - a perfect opportunity for something so intangible to most people like space exploration to be highlighted and exploited. But no. Even Richard Branson's social adeptness is unable to extend as far as a simple response to a holiday tweet. And what a shame too. This one could have been a lot of fun.
In the screenshot below, you'll see my tweet to them and immediately notice the emptiness in the @reply section.
This result makes me want to try reaching out to other Virgin divisions to garner a response. Perhaps the team at Galactic just have their head in the clouds.
