Trinity Customer Night A Success – Hoboken 411 loses over 4,000 Twitter Followers in 2 Days
Last night Trinity in Hoboken held a customer appreciation night on April 11, 2013. The background behind this was that in late March Hoboken 411 posted on his website that Trinity was closing and would become an Italian restaurant. Kevin Cocca who is one of the owners has attempted to contact Hoboken411 the next day to get the facts corrected as Trinity has no plans of closing or selling to Italian restauranteurs. Kevin remarked that false information like that was detrimental to their business and they spent time assuring both staff and patrons they were not closing. A week later Hoboken411 finally pulled the post when a letter from Trinity’s attorney was sent. The negative behavior on the part of Hoboken 411 prompted Trinity Management to do something positive by hosting a customer appreciation night on 4-11 which was very well attended with over 100-125 people in the main bar area alone. Several people TheBoken.com spoke to said they no longer read Hoboken411 due to the personal attacks and negativity. As editor I was more than happy to pass out my website’s business cards.
Congratulations to Trinity for standing up to the misinformation of Hoboken411 and the smearing petty posts of Perry Klaussen. It is the hope of TheBoken.com that other businesses take Trinity’s lead and do the same. Hoboken businesses should not be bullied by bitter bloggers but rather supported by websites such as TheBoken.com and others that have a positive view of Hoboken.
Here is the best part in my humble opinion. In the last two days, Hoboken411 has lost over 4,000 Twitter followers. According to TwitSprout Hoboken411 is hemorrhaging Twitter followers. I have my doubts as to those followers being real in the first place as they were likely paid for but that is a great example of karma doing its own thing. See the heavy bleeding below in rejoice that in some small way justice is being served….
On Thursday Hoboken411 lost 2,636 Twitter followers and so far today that website has lost 1,589 and counting. Again, I doubt many of them were real followers in the first place but this plummet in followers certainly is. It could not happen to a nicer guy.
