So far so good. The year started smoothly at Prefixlist. No malfunctions, no delays, no problems, everything seems to work as it should. I guess one should be lucky sometimes when there's nothing to report. The annual clean-up is completed. 122 prefixes are deleted. If you encounter containers with a prefix that's missing in the list, don't hesitate to notify me. You can either use mail or Twitter.
Speaking of which, Prefixlist found and follows over 300 Twitter accounts from container owners and counting. Especially when companies don't have a link to their social media accounts on their websites searching for these Twitter accounts is a very time consuming business. It seems most companies don't realize the power and possibililties of social media like Twitter and Facebook. This awareness still needs to grow. But then again, some companies don't want you to contact them. I try sometimes with simple questions or a picture request, but receive no reply occasionally. Not even a negative reply, just no reply at all. So much for customer care.....
Same is for the two pictures on the Prefixlist Twitter account of unknown prefixes on two different containers (Bintang Mas & Venture Maritime). I tried to contact the owners by mail, but so far no reply at all. If anyone else knows more details of these containers (take a look at www.twitter.com/prefixlist) please let me know.
