MetalCasting Design & Purchasing

Keep Tabs With Twitter

Do you tweet? Or do you at least lurk on your Twitter feed, getting the latest updates on Tebow mania, CNN news, or your favorite musician’s concert dates? We’re not the first ones to announce this, but Twitter can be more than a guilty pleasure. It’s also way to touch base with your casting suppliers.

More metalcasters are on board the Twitter train than you might expect, including Bremen Castings (@bremencastings), Sivyer Steel (@SivyerSteel), and Waukesha Foundry (@waukeshafoundry), to name a few. Many news and industry organizations dealing specifically with metalcasting are on there, too, including Metal Casting Design & Purchasing magazine (@Metal_Castings), the American Foundry Society (@amerfoundrysoc),  Foundry-Planet.com (@foundryplanet), the North American Die Casting Assocation (@NADCAblog), and our own Al Spada (@SpadaLuvCasting).

If you’re on Twitter, let us know—we’ll follow you! If you’ve avoided Twitter, reconsider dipping in. Tell us about that major program you’ve just launched, the casting facility you’ve just toured, the supply issues you’re facing. Get breaking news and insider information on the casting industry that you would miss sticking to primary news outlets.  Share your experiences with other design engineers and casting buyers. 

When you’re stuck in an office, it’s easy to feel like you’re in a vacuum. Let Twitter be your wormhole to the rest of the world.
