I don't need a playlist. I have a streaming service that allows me to listen to whatever I want, whenever I want. If I wanted an iPod, I'd buy an iPod. Playlist are for lovelorn teenage girls.

maybe it's less about the quality of music and more about how things are released now (streaming).

we'll never experience the excitement of buying a record at the store on release day again. we also rarely experience the excitement of an album leaking early anymore either. 

instead, we get whatever the hell they decided to do with this album.

Well, you think about the fact we would sit on the radio station and wait for our songs, until finally we'd get our hands on the album, and get to experience all these new songs we had nothing but the back of the CD tracklist to guess what it'd be like based off the name.

Then to have to hunt down and find leaks on limewire or kazaa, put the effort in to burn a CD to listen to it on good quality, but on some cheap blank disc.

Then to YouTube having easier access to leaks and full albums, but still having to jump around song to song, get the artwork and everything.

Then to now where it's instant access, do as you please from the Spotify server, or YouTube with a million ads.

It’s definitely about the quality for me. If I like the album I’ll listen to it on repeat for weeks.

Same. I listen to the album in question for weeks, then my favorite songs will go to my big playlist. Like @Kay, I have a big playlist that I just put on shuffle. It’s not as big, but it has 1503 songs as of today.

 

It was different when I had my previous car though, it didn’t have an aux input or Bluetooth so there it would be full albums on repeat

So Tom is a confirmed vanity-searching baby.

No doubt in my mind Tom reads through a ton of his stuff, I always see him responding to random comments. Would not be surprised if has multiple burner accounts if not one here at one point.

Having interacted with a few social media managers now, I’m pretty sure any time Tom quote tweets or interacts with a fan, it’s just his manager doing engagement. I don’t think Tom is just searching on Twitter for non tagged tweets related to AVA / him.

I know it's a job, but I doubt it's anywhere the same for a semi-famous artist like Tom, if he were to even have one.  I'm sure AvA guaranteed has one, Tom, can't see having a manager for anything.

You would be very surprised how little of a following you need to have a social media managers. Influencers in the hundreds of thousands of followers have social media managers. A social media manager will have 5 clients at a time and it’s contracted work through a pr firm. Order of events, publicist reaches out to firm they want to work with. Says my client needs this for x amount of time (in this case the lifeforms album cycle), pr firm says okay we have this person available and they create a temp contract. It’s very common the social media manager handles all direct engagement with followers with no input from the client, but it varies the client may want to approve messages. The client handles actual posting and / or has to approve things with the social media manager.

It heavily varies how involved the celeb is with their account, but engagement with fans is most of the time the account manager.

Also if you don’t think it’s a manager, it means they’re doing a good job because that’s the whole point of their job.

Its just speculation from me, but his change in presence with fan interaction around the start of the album cycle makes me think he at least has someone helping out with the account. (Well that’s a known fact because Tom has scheduled posts that go out that are advertisements for to the stars merch all the time on his Instagram and Twitter that he is definitely not the one doing at a minimum).
