If news of twittering Libor isn’t enough for one day, Shell plans to publish hurricane updates on Twitter, during the storm season, which begins in a fortnight. They only have 30 followers at the time of writing; but admittedly there’s not much to say on the subject yet. In fact, very little.
Most of the oil majors tend to be a little on the conservative side when it comes to social media, but Shell is after all the oil major that has dipped a toe in the water with blogging (it tends avoids the subject of Shell itself, but still) and allowed their chief executive to be harangued by George Monbiot on video.
