Skynet on Social Media

I maintain Facebook and Twitter sites for the Skynet Robotic Telescope Network, and a YouTube site for Project Intro Astro / Skynet University.

I put a fair amount of effort into the Facebook site, where I have over 100,000 followers.

I forget about the Twitter site for years at a time, and (deservingly) have less than 700 followers there...

However, my YouTube videos have had ≈170,000 views, for a total of ≈780,000 minutes = 13,000 hours = 540 days = 1.5 continuous years viewed.
