Was Twitter even around prior to S&A's release?

"Twitter is an online social networking service and microblogging service that enables its users to send and read text-based posts of up to 140 characters, known as "tweets". It was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey and launched that July."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twitter

Well, there ya have it haha. I don't even remember it being around back then. Maybe it didn't really explode until later.

"The company experienced rapid growth. It had 400,000 tweets posted per quarter in 2007. This grew to 100 million tweets posted per quarter in 2008. In February 2010, Twitter users were sending 50 million tweets per day.[33] By March 2010, the company recorded over 70,000 registered applications.[34] As of June 2010, about 65 million tweets were posted each day, equaling about 750 tweets sent each second, according to Twitter.[35] As of March 2011, that was about 140 million tweets posted daily.[36] As noted on Compete.com, Twitter moved up to the third-highest-ranking social networking site in January 2009 from its previous rank of twenty-second."

From RIAB:

UPDATE - 3/28@4:48PM: I have also received information that Headlong First will indeed be the first single and that a 5.5-minute edit will be hitting radio on April 19th. The listening party did indeed take place yesterday, and Roadrunner is keeping a very tight lid on the track, so it's unlikely that it will leak. Although there's a possibility we'll get to hear a sample online sometime before the radio release.

Why does everyone keep referring to this as the "first" single?

From Sniglets over at CP:

"Sorry I have been unable to post on here as I have been busy with work. Listening party happened a bit later than scheduled yesterday as it was more after 1 pm. I wasn't there but my friend was and he said if you would have wanted Rush albums in the 80s to have a harder edge then this is your record. The songs are like a winding journey and definitely has a more modern day concept feel to them. Keyboards are present on the record so if you loathe them, sorry! He didn't compare it to any particular album and that was a relief. He said just take 80 to 91 in a blender and that was it. Single should be out on or about April 1st. It is being sent to radio this weekend. My guess is this one doesn't leak. More as I hear more. It was basically a text conversation about it and I haven't had really the time to get in touch with him as he has other assignments"

I'm excited but why can't they release the whole thing? Its not like they're going to have a top 20 hit.

I dunno - could have just been a fanboi  laugh.gif

Well....that's two fanboi's now that have said awesome. Maybe Roadrunner is paying them off tongue.gif

On a conference call... but all I can focus on is the Rush song I just heard.


His twitter page is a Rush background and his quote is a lyric from "Caravan."  I wouldn't really call him an unbiased industry professional.

It probably still kicks ass though.

  OMG!!!! 80-91 or so is my absolute fav Rush period and the more keys the better. I am beyond excited now. Imagine GUP or PoW with a harder edge and more progressive. This might be the Rush record I've been wanting them to make since the mid 80's. 653.gif

  That is great that the single is so long they have to edit it down.  1022.gif

/Debbie Downer/ Could also mean that none of the rest of the songs are worth releasing and could only find 5 acceptable minutes from the one.

No. I just think it means they really dig this track but they know that radio won't touch anything that's 7.5 minutes long.

  What? We've already heard that almost every track is long so you can't send 6-7 minute tracks to radio.
