New IFE News service on the block!

Some days I wish I could write blog posts that would aggregate all the latest in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) news in one place for readers, but time is usually my enemy.

Thankfully, I no longer need to feel guilty. There is now a Twitter account dedicated to seeking and tweeting the latest IFEC news. It’s aptly called @IFENews and is brought to you by my friends over at @FlightPodcast and @flightorg.

Check out the Twitter stream for @IFENews (and follow them) to stay abreast of this very exciting – and increasingly fast-paced – industry! Am I worried about another IFEC Twitterer on the block? Listen, we all benefit from being as informed as possible about new developments and by giving this industry the exposure it bloody well deserves! Other industry peeps worth following include @TheAPEXAssoc and @AIX_Hamburg Have you gotten social yet?

    Hi Mary. By no means should anybody be “worried” by another IFE account. This account is – somewhat shamefully – automated with very little human interaction. I’ve written a little script that will parse text and create hash-tags and user handles when available – effectively making it more ‘Twitter friendly’ – but it’s still a bot. @IFEnews is really just a means of keeping informed of industry news when it may otherwise go unnoticed.

    Your account is and always will be the ultimate repository of real IFE news!

    I am extremely grateful! It’s wonderful to see, to be frank. The in-flight passenger experience is so important. I’m going to set up a special column on the TweetDeck dedicated to @IFENews and push everything I haven’t already written about to my readers. :0) xxx
