A tale of two internet acquaintances: Zoe Keating spotted a letter Amanda Palmer wrote to a music blog about marketing, and Zoe twittered the key points, which are:
from @amandapalmer re #LOFNOTC: "total made on twitter in 2hrs = $11,000; total made from Ben Folds-produced major label album = $0"
cash made by @amandapalmer in one month on Twitter = $19,000; cash made by @amandapalmer from 30,000 record sales = $0
Go and read the letter. Even though @amandapalmer is, as she likes to say, Amanda Fucking Palmer, there’s lessons and food for thought in there for everyone trying to reach people through the interbutt.
