+400 450 twitter accounts
In only 6 months time, our earthquake related twitter accounts got the attention of more than 400 450 twitter users (50 more in only 7 days).
All these twitter accounts do have only 1 goal : try to inform the world a lot better than today.
Our twitter accounts are NOT the 731st feed of automatic earthquake information tapped from governmental organizations, but do create a lot of ADDED VALUE in describing not only when it happened, but also how it happened and what is happening in the aftermath of an earthquake.
That way our twitter followers are probably the best informed people in the world on ongoing events.
Even local people often turn to us for additional information about their own earthquakes.

Our 400th twitter follower was the time to rethink what we were doing.
We found out that people sometimes are getting TOO MUCH information.
The combination of our news headlines together with a notification of every earthquake in the world is for a lot of our readers just a bridge too far.
The “OnlyQuakeNews” account has been especially created for them. We hope that also this account will forward and retweet our unique and sometimes exclusive news into the wide world.
