Welcome to Tweetcap: a recap of Alex Lambert’s week in tweets. Think of it as a replacement for the weekly “If I Can Dream” episodes… only with still pictures and words!

Since this is the first Tweetcap, we’re going to have a “double episode”, starting with Alex’s return to LA right after the show at the Brownstone in Fort Worth, Texas.

In this episode…

Alex Lambert gets busy in the recording studio, shows us his new digs, and pays a visit to the 19 Entertainment offices, all while rooting for his favorite sports team. A night on the town with Michael Castro has the two musicians going in circles, and a trip to Disneyland proves to be Epic. The week ends with Alex visiting family in Texas, after spending the night at the airport on standby.

Monday, October 25th:

TrueAlexLambert: Back to LA

Tuesday, October 26th:

TrueAlexLambert: Alright well back in the studio tomorrow and I have a feeling this is gonna be a real nice one;) hope y’all like it.

Wednesday, October 27th:

  1. Kass and Molly – This tweetcap was fun! Hopefully a very full tweetcap next week. hehe.

  2. I like the tweetcap format. Nice to have it condensed into one place. Thanks Kass & Molly.

    All I hear is crickets out there. Where is everyone this morning?Looks as if everyone had a busy weekend, including Alex! Just wondering when Alex is headed back to LA???? No tweets… :(

    Okay, everyone… have a great day!!!

    • Ya spoke to soon – he just tweeted! No phone or internet… or shower lol.

      Sounds like crickets is what Alex was hearing all weekend too lol.

      ETA haha posting at the same time ;)

      • By the way, if you click on the thumbnails of the pictures, the full picture will open up, and you can scroll through them like a slideshow.

  3. I spoke too soon. Finally a tweet from yours truly. I’m happy he enjoyed himself out in the wilderness!!!

  4. Awesome Kass, you never cease to amaze me. You’re so tech savvy. I’m envious!! j/k…sorta.

    After I posted my comment, I noticed his tweet. We gotta have tweets, especially to keep up on the tweetcaps!!!

    Alex, if you’re reading this…thanks for keeping us updated!

    • Lol it’s not just for this post – all the images on the site open like that, and if there’s more than one in the post you can flip through them. It’s an add on Molly installed.

      • Anyone heard of this site before? I read about it on MJs:

        http://www.hitpredictor.com/referral/489877

        You hear (long) snippets of songs and vote on them to give feedback to the record labels.

        Sooo addictive. More importantly, they may very well put Alex’s stuff up there once it’s ready to come out (they’ve got Crystal’s two tracks up there now, and ask about a lot of the other Idols). So it may be a good idea to get a profile and start rating songs so when the time comes they’ll take your recommendations seriously. If that’s how it works… (some conversation to that effect on the post on MJs: http://mjsbigblog.com/listen-to-a-stream-of-hold-on-by-crystal-bowersox.htm).

        Already discovered several artists I’d never heard of before that I really really like! (and sat through a bunch of horrendous songs, but anyway.)

  5. Do you think he’s showered by now?? lol He was at a deer camp over the weekend, so I can imagine it was pretty rustic. I’ve been snooping around facebook today, and came across a cute picture of him at the camp. So endearing, because he was playing the guitar, naturally. I so :heart: him.

    Now who takes a guitar to go hunting, I ask? But Alex just can’t help himself, music is in his BLOOD!! And no, I’m not going to link the pic, or tell you where to find it, because it would be an invasion of privacy. Let’s just say, the only reason I knew it was Alex was the big feet! Not much of his face…

    That’s probably a good suggestion, Kass, since the labels need feedback on *everything* these days…they don’t trust their own instincts. We definitely will need to rally the troops when the time is ready to support him on radio.

  6. Let me just clarify that I don’t know if Alex took a guitar to the camp, or just someone from the group brought one along, but Alex was playing it. His family is very musical, so it could have been anybody, I suppose.

    I’ve been tracking Alex’s twitter statistics (I love numbers!), and I see he’s been losing followers lately. His twitter followers have really plateaued since IICD ended, but now they’ve actually been decreasing. To all you twitter users, do you think he’s going through and dropping likely “spam” type followers, or do you think people are actually making the decision to drop him? Just curious…

    I cant imagine anyone would purposely unfollow him at this point when things are pretty much rolling along in the right direction for him. I actually removed quite a bit of spam from mine recently. Are you sure they have been decreasing? I know he only had 16,000.00 when he did that hotwire interview in July, now is is over 18,000.00.

    • People are fickle… who knows? 18,000+ is still a lot of followers… but I do hope something happens soon… don’t want him losing momentum! Things are good now that DFTL just aired, but people lose interest real fast. If he posted some songs or something to You Tube it would be a REALLY GOOD IDEA and rekindle some excitement… just putting it out there.

      On that note, goodnight all!

  8. And as one admin signs off another signs on! Goodnight Kass!!!

    I love that me and Kass live in considerably different times zones…it makes it so much easier (since an admin is usually always online) and we’re more productive and able to serve you guys better!

    Anywho, here’s a nice little graph of Alex’s Twitter followers over a 3 month span for Diane and anyone interested.

  9. He picked up 8,or so followers since I checked in the WEE hours this morn.@Diane-his feet may be a bit big ,but like I think one of Kara’s friends said sitting next to Alex on the LR sofa one day-they have no imperfections,and they are very nice-looking feet…Then Kara responded to her friend-“as a foot connoisseur,I approve” :biggrin:

  10. So Kara was into wrists *AND* feet?? There’s more to Kara than meets the eye! :lol:

    I follow that same site, Molly, and you can see it has totally flat-lined since he hit around 18,250 (or so). I really do think he’s picking off the spam–I can’t imagine anyone actively dropping him. It’s not like he’s a tweeting fool and annoying followers.

    I don’t know if this will link, but this is last week’s chart:

    On that note, goodnight all!  

    I so agree, Kass. It would be great if he posted something on You Tube. I’m hoping for something big soon just to keep that momentum going. However, I know nothing about the music industry. I am hopeful that his management team know what they are doing.

    Diane:I’ve been tracking Alex’s twitter statistics (I love numbers!), and I see he’s been losing followers lately.His twitter followers have really plateaued since IICD ended, but now they’ve actually been decreasing.To all you twitter users, do you think he’s going through and dropping likely “spam” type followers, or do you think people are actually making the decision to drop him?Just curious…  

    Diane – I casually keep an eye on his twitter numbers. I have noticed at times that the number of followers goes up and down. For instance at about the same time as IICD ended, he was just breaking 18,000. I watched for 3 days as the numbers went back and forth. They eventually stayed above 18,000 for good. My point is that the numbers will go up and down over the span of a couple of days, but, as Molly’s graph shows, they are trending upward. I’m confident that they will continue to trend upward. However, some news or a You Tube video wouldn’t hurt.

    With IICD ending, there isn’t much going on to attract new followers. Also as Kass said, people are fickle and will lose interest fast. I’m confident that any followers who are lost during this lull will be easily replaced once a record label starts promoting a CD. I’m not worried at all. Just trying to be patient.

  12. I prefer Crystal’s vocals on the -Hold On clip,to the previous demo of Kara…

  13. Looks like one of Alex’s homies from NRH posted a comment to his FB wall. He just finished up a song with Alex. I am inclined to think that it is the guy rapping in “New World” by his voice. That’s good news Alex…some time in nature and some time completing a possible/probable rap R&B track for your album. :smile:

  14. Twitter numbers are hard to figure.Alex should have loads more,but not til he’s promoted as a new artist will we see a surge.IMO,he’ll be promoted along the lines of how Jason Derulo was,and he got to something like 130k followers so far.Look at an Idol-winner like Taylor Hicks-he’s very well known,yet has only 7k followers.On the flip side Lee Dewyze had about the same number of followers as Aaron Kelly,and then they told Ryan Seacrest to tell his twitter followers to go follow Lee,and his numbers more than tripled…so-many different scenarios.

  15. Kassandra: If he posted some songs or something to You Tube it would be a REALLY GOOD IDEA and rekindle some excitement… just putting it out there.
      

    I want to add that my intent was not that we all start spamming Alex via Twitter telling him to make a video. I know most of you know that, and there’s nothing wrong with a simple single request, but thought I’d clarify in case anyone gets any ideas :lol:
