I don't think anyone is advocating not posting rare sightings to Tweeters, not at all. In fact, where did Jason post his Neah Bay update and about how to join the WhatsApp group? To Tweeters!

Joining a WhatsApp group is not a requirement for anyone and it is not a replacement for something else, it's optional if you want the immediate and instantaneous details about birds in specific counties/areas. If you don't want to, then don't join it. Really rare birds and trip reports will still continue to be posted to Tweeters anyway.

Even if you live in Port Angeles it's still a couple hours to get to Neah Bay so really there is no one who can just "dash over there and back real quick" for any old bird. It's a big time commitment for anyone to go out there. Even though I won't be running out there at the drop of a hat, I'm joining the WhatsApp just because I enjoy keeping up on what's going on and don't mind having another messaging app on my phone. Facebook already knows everything about me and probably everyone else anyways so downloading WhatsApp isn't going to make a difference. Anyone who has a cell phone is tracked everywhere they go and everything they look at. There's almost no avoiding it nowadays if you want to have the convenience of modern technology, we don't have to like it, we can choose not to participate, but that's simply the way it is.
