I don't really mind which country are they in either but it is odd that when in LA there is almost twitter silence. Mind you, I think their presence on twitter has lessened considerably since last October. I don't know why and of course it's up to them but it could potentially damage their connection with fans. At least that's what seems to be said on tumblr/twitter and I don't disagree.
If they read the things you can read almost daily on Twitter, I'm not surprised they use it less and less. What we can't do is harass them to use it, like in the 1st day in Sweden, we had seen pics of them, videos of them, they had meet the fans, but still you could read a lot of "please tweet us to know that you're ok" Jesus.

They need their space, and to take their time to whatever they want to do. I prefer not tweets at all, that having uninspired tweets because everybody is asking them to.

I kinda agree about the L.A. thing though. We know they're doing professional stuff over there, stuff they probably can't talk about yet, but if just pics of them shopping or having dinner pop up, people mistakenly will think it's the only thing they are doing over there.

Nice words from Danny Saucedo in his blog:
Been hanging with John and Edward from JEDWARD. Really nice dudes. So much good energy and humble. They're telling stories all the time and always have something fun to say.

This might have something to do with their phone not working in America. I'd guess they can only access the internet via wifi. Remember how they had to borrow Tara's phone? It would explain why some of their American photos weren't tweeted until they were back in Dublin.

Yeah I guess it's something like that.

I can't see a small matter of a few thousand miles being enough to stop them going there, the way they're jet-setting about these days!

Here's a really nice Jedward write-up from the Irish Examiner: http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifesty...l#.UTY8pn3FmOQ

The only slight flaw is no-one can remember them saying the tweets about Ryan Dolan at the end.

On the whole not a bad article. At least the references to Ryan Dolan stops accusations that they're not supportive of their 'replacement', so perhaps we'll let that inaccuracy stand.

I am glad that they are invited to these shows, but wonder at same time who is helping them there(&why Canada?) , someone must have booked them (or do they pay own money to be invited on these shows?)

nevertheless it is great that they will on these shows&hopefully it will lead to more work outside Ireland&hopefully this is the start of the huge worldwide success which they deserve

This is awesome I've never heard of artists paying out of their own money to be on these type of shows.

I espect someone is helping them

Same here.

According to the new header of the twins' twitter, Happens in the dark is gonna be premiered on Much Music in a week

Also they're following 3 more accounts: Etalk, The Marylin Denis show and Henry Holland, from House of Holland (UK fashion brand). It must be a random follow but just wanted to post it here for the record. Weeks after they followed SVT we learned about the fashion reports for Melodifestivalen

This is my theory. Sometimes artists will do promo in a smaller territory to create buzz that will help them break in a larger territory.

It happens in Australia and New Zealand - an American record company sends a rising star down under to get some media experience, build their fan base, play some gigs and maybe even get a song in the charts. And that all helps them later when they're back in America. "Oh, you had a top 10 single in Australia!"

It's a lot easier for the Jeds to get booked on those Canadian shows than it would be for the US equivalents. So I reckon the Jeds are focusing on Canada as a way of building their profile and generating buzz that's going to help them when they're working on bigger countries, like the USA!

I would have thought Ryan Dolan had the most Jedward-esque entry in Eurosong and one that they would approve of (though it seems they didn't tweet anything about him).
