Nice Twitter Ghosting Disclosure From The Pirate Crew

I think we all agree that ghosting is a bit of a stupid thing. I tried it for while too help out time poor business people but it really doesn't wash with audiences nowadays.

The Discovery Channel people have obviously got the message with Deadliest Catch that people want to hear from Captain Johnathan the pirate not Casper the PR ghost. 

Very impressed to see this disclosure in the tweet.

It looks like a small thing but for me as a fan, it shows they understand I want to hear from him in first person and it builds trust. Nicely done.
