Gotta be honest here... who actually uses twitter? 
People with way too much time on their hands, those in IT, those in media, and those who are interested in self-promotion.
That's pretty much it.

And the leader of the free world

Twitter is great for following live sport or getting up to date news if you're a sport's lover. I also follow a heap of Dees fans & have some great chats about the club. I actually find Twitter the best form of social media as i don't have to look at pictures of people's food or babies.

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere on here or if it warrants a seperate thread, but MFC is due to unveil a new major sponsor most likely in mid-January.

Haven't heard any precise details regarding $ value or deal term as yet, but I have seen a mock up of the jumper as the front-of-jumper logo is being refined for best visibility over the red and blue chest area.  

Anyway, MFC and the sponsor will announce in due course, however I think you'll be seeing a lot of MFC players getting around town in luxury Japanese vehicles from next year.

Lexus are the luxury division of Toyota. In terms of size of the sponsor that's a pretty big company/brand, it doesn't really get much bigger globally than Toyota. Congrats to the club if true.

Thanks rolling!   I really hope this works out as you have foreshadowed.  We could do with a healthy dose of good news around now.

Lexus would be a fantastic sponsor for us, if this is true

Premium brand, and part of the overarching Toyota sponsorship of the AFL as a whole

Now, about that 50% off for members...

Would be really nice to keep a sponsor LONG TERM for a change.

We should play off the stereotype, get Range Rover and Mt Buller or Auski as sponsors. May as well, at least we have an opportunity, not like Collingwood will get Centrelink as a sponsor or Richmond the Australian Dental Association.

It's always struck me as strange that BMW or Mercedes have never been major kit sponsors.

Fantastic to hear we've got a major sponsor lined up though. Thanks for the info. I hope it's Lexus.

And I'm with @Dr. Gonzo - I reckon we play into the stereotypes. I've always found it peculiar that people actually bag us for having money. Shouldn't we be mocking them? ;)

Curious as to why car manufacturers are such common sponsors of AFL clubs? Anyone with some marketing insight care to postulate?

I believe two of the biggest interests of people in Australia are sports and cars.

They are now sponsoring the Melbourne Cup so can't see them doing us as well, so maybe the boys will be in Vitaras or Datsuns.
