Endless problems with the clubs social media output

Ah yes just seen that, that’s so easily fixable like the other things mentioned. Hopefully they get sorted.

Would be great if they had more stats in depth on the site.

Yeh the stats need work as well. It's about owning what you produce as well as accuracy. Stats are a commodity nowadays (I have heard of players attempting to contractually "own" their stats in the same way they own image rights). Why the club don't look to improve their presentation and packaging of the stats the club produces, or at the very least display the definitive version of them, I don't know. At the moment the club allows third parties to publicly define it's own performance. Madness in my opinion.

City have always retweeted videos and pictures that international teams have put out of our players.

Morrell picture for Wales City retweeted today, no one minds that it seems!

It's not the retweeting of them in isolation, it's the accompanying caption which was a fire emoji as if to imply it was some sort of ridiculous piece of skill. It wasn't, a good percentage of the forum could probably do it themselves. It all just feels like a big disconnect and misunderstanding of the fans and what they want.

To his credit, Ryan Morgan (the guy who actually runs the social media despite loads of people bizarrely thinking it's Dave Parsons tweeting personally), tweeted asking fans what they want to see as matchday content

Its funny though that simply a fire emoji above it can cause people to get pissed off.

Some people take some things far too seriously it seems to me.

You're missing the point (perhaps deliberately). People aren't "pissed off" about it, just using it as an example of the club getting it wrong. It's a fairly straightforward control and finish that people weren't that impressed by (read the replies) - the club don't need to post something for the sake it of. Sometimes it's just better to post nothing.

Fair enough.

I genuinely don't get where there's a problem in retweeting a video of one of our players scoring a goal during training on international duty. The fire emoji? Honestly who really cares they included that!

Its just a bit of support for one of our players. And highlights the fact we have players representing their country. People need to cheer up!

I expect there's kids on Twitter who like seeing it. Maybe some adults do too. I didn't mind watching it. Nice enough finish in the corner. No harm done.

That's true of course, however if the club consistently put out content the supporters want then they wouldn't care.

The issue is that they consistently get it wrong - almost more often than not I'd say. As a result, people are hypercritical of their social media content and rightly so.

Weird how much it angers people. Davefevs even called Ryan an effing idiot.

As far as I’m aware, Ryan is a video man, he used to do the Surrey Scorchers basketball stuff, and when he joined Bristol Sport, I assumed it was to ease the workload on Joel Osborne (the man behind the gifs).  However he looks like he moved into the football side.  His video work is good.  If he is indeed running the twitter account, he misses the mood of a football fan.

Really?  Did I?  Don’t recall that?  On twitter?  Doesn’t sound like me?  Seriously, are you sure it wasn’t FaveDevs?  Someone was “trolling” me last week....good natured, admittedly by creating a bogus twitter handle!.  It doesn’t genuinely sound like something I’d tweet.  If it was me, I’d love to see the tweet.  Thanks in anticipation.

To his non credit though I saw that tweet and nothing in his bio, name, picture etc gave any real indication that this was a genuine request from somebody involved in the club.

It hinted loosely in his bio but that was it. Why not start with Hi I’m Ryan Morgan and I oversee fan context for the Bcfc site or similar.

It just looked like some random guy asking what we want to see and with so many uber-fans launching podcasts, websites etc it was not obvious he was formally linked to the official site.

Blimey. Apologies.

Someone is that immature they are pretending to be a prominent otib poster!  Seen it all now. 

This forum is so weird!

Not sure that is related to OTIB

Dave is very active on Twitter too

A parody Twitter account. My god you've made it. That's it. You're a bonefide celebrity now mate. Blue ticks and box seats are on their way to you.

The clubs instagram is terrible, I assume the twitter follows the likes of those Leverkusen and Mönchengladbach accounts with low effort trolling. 

Last time I checked the twitter page they were sort of forcing thatchers into everything, which I only assume was because they have them as a sponsor as I've never seen that before

That’s really creepy. I wouldn’t like that at all. Could get you into lots of trouble.

Yep, exactly. He’s not grown up as a fan and it shows, as @Eastside Moonwalker points out - the club clearly tries to emulate those novelty Bundesliga accounts with its approach. Our support just don’t like it very much. It’s rarely funny and often overdone. 

He does do very good video content - that’s clearly his strength.

I also thought that twitter account was you - couldn’t believe you’d use such language!

Indeed he is, but the original comment implied he was being trolled because of being on OTIB.

Dave is equally active on Twitter

I would personally report the account and get it shut down

Not great is it. 

Got to admit though - I wouldn't have known that wasn't him!

Nor would I.

But it isn’t our job, is it?

Pretty amateurish & disrespectful to Cameron Pring, also looks small time to do something like that.
