Switchfoot can now be called official Twitter fanatics; get a shoutout from Jimmy Eat World

Switchfoot hasn't been busy only on mixing, overdubbing, and finalizing their new album. They've also been busy getting familiar with Twitter and their Twitter followers. Here's a rundown of what they did in what was a rather busy day of tweeting and rockin' the Supro guitar.

March 31st:

- Just added myself to the http://wefollow.com twitter directory under: #Music #Web #Blogger

- Amigos, thanks for welcoming us to the twitter family, we're following you now too (or will be by the end of the day... still working on it)

- Recording here in LA with Mike Elizondo... Jon + old Supro guitar = awesome! http://twitpic.com/2niao

Jimmy Eat World is also on Twitter, and they posted a great shout-out to their @switchfoot buddies on their own feed:

- jimmyeatworld check out some friends of ours on twitter: @switchfoot - good dudes, good rock.

Switchfoot replied soon after with a <3ing response (haha):

- @jimmyeatworld thanks for the shout zach. The foot <3 jimmy eat world. Wow, I've never made an e-heart before, not sure how I feel about it

<3 LOL.

Anyways, carrying on, the Switchfoot guys were thinking of streaming a song on their twitter and took requests. Here's what went down:

- thinking of streaming a song here, maybe any suggestions?

- oh yeah, sorry. an old song. we're still finishing the new ones, heh.

- the requests were pretty varied, but we got 3 in a row for shadow. this goes out to @GoatsOnBoats, who was first: ♫ http://twt.fm/21244


So it looks like the guys are really enjoying this whole Twitter thing. Hopefully this will keep going, because this increased connection with the fans is definitely going to be beneficial as the months draw nearer to a brand new Switchfoot album release.

For now, make sure you get singed up and follow them, because the more the merrier, as people like to say.
