One thing I used to do on the blog is take the concept of “Follow Friday” on Twitter, and move it over here. I would find someone, and tell you why you should follow them on Twitter. Well, this week, since I still haven’t visited any shops, I decided to take that, and apply it to our local convention scene! So, if you are a Twitter user, here are some of our Hoosier conventions, and why you should give them a follow over on the Tweet site!
Note that all conventions are listed in alphabetical order, as to not show favoritism to any particular one. Also, please remember that all the convention information can also be found over on the 2017 Convention Listing page, and the 2018 Convention Listing page will probably pop up around Halloween! Also note that if a page hasn’t shown any activity in the last year, I can not in good faith recommend that you follow them.
So, who’s on Tweeter?
- Anime Crossroads – This is an anime convention, held in Indianapolis, early each year. Follow them, and they might actually get a bit more active! Hopefully! Maybe!
- Days of the Dead – This horror convention tweets out their scheduled guests, as well as answering questions from their followers!
- Eville Con – This is the Twitter feed for another anime convention, held down in Evansville! They are fairly active, so heads up!
- InConJunction – This awesome science fiction convention here in Indianapolis is also a bit active, with a little bit of everything being thrown out to their followers!
- Indiana Toy and Comic Expo – This toy, comic, and pop culture show out of Bloomington tweets fairly regularly year round, helping to promote the folks that attend their show.
- Indy Fur Con – It’s a con for fursuiters, here in Indy! They are another active account, so if this is your thing, check them out!
- Indy Pop Con – They are active. They won’t be quiet. We don’t want them to, either.
- Midwest Toy Fest – Not very active at the moment, but this account still does a fantastic job promoting local creators and folks that attend their show.
- NWI Comic Con – Show promotion when it’s close, good Geeky news from all over in between shows. A fun account to follow!
- Starbase Indy – Con news, science info, and more from this local Indianapolis science-fiction convention.
- Tri Con – This convention down in Evansville does a lot of promotion for the local scene!
- Who’s Yer Con – This is actually the feed for Who’s Yer Gamers, which runs Who’s Yer Con, which makes it an even more awesome feed to follow!
So, give these folks an add, a follow, and some interaction love, as well as giving them your money when their con comes around!
See you next week!
