Sam Smiths on Twitter
« on: Oct 27 - 2014 »
Apologies if this was posted already but I've just discovered that the brewery has what appears to be an official Twitter account - @samsmithsbeer

Got to say I was surprised to say the least!

I am not convinced that it is genuine.  Something isn't quite right.  There's a touch of amateurishness to it.  Any other thoughts?

I agree db. The context of the comments is 3rd party, like a Sams beer fan probably!? But if that's the case, prob wont go down too well with the brewery, especially using their insignia. But maybe if someone from Sams is reading this, they can confirm on the Twitter feed, or otherwise elsewhere?

Although, I've just had a further look, and it probably is genuine, and it's probably young Sam himself. e.g..

We're looking to hire management couples who have a passion for hospitality to work with us in London. PM us if interested! #recruitment

Agreed!!! I would say definitely official, and further proof of a younger generations positive online marketing influence.
These are sad times :(

Well, within a few minutes of me following the account, they are now following me.  If it is genuine, then it is one small step for Tadcaster, one giant leap for Yorkshire-kind!

I had the same suspicions - after all, Sam Smiths doing social media?!

It is a bit amateurish but my initial thoughts were also that it's young Sam. Some of the interactions are with, for example, Merchant Du Vin, and I'd imagine that if it wasn't official, someone at the brewery would have had the plug pulled by now, as it's been live since May.

Young Sam was in Germany again for the meet the brewer session at Berlin craft beer bash,he has been before and apparently speaks fluent German,judging by the twitter posts may well be him?.

Absolutely extraordinary! Whoever is responsible - and it must surely be young Sam - is giving every impression that this is a dynamic, customer-focused, forward thinking company! All the elements of a great business are there - it just needs re-inventing. Here's to you then Sam  :DD

I am waiting for the day that all of the pubs appear on the official website!

After following the Twitter account for a little while now, I would like to retract my "amateurish" tag that I labelled it with.  I would like to say that I actually think it comes across as "personal", which is exactly what it should be.

I stand myself corrected.
