The Tenties are a group of Imagine Dragons fans that use Cubie to keep in touch. Some of them even met up in New York City and we thought it’d be fun to hear more about them! We asked a couple of them some questions, here are their answers:
How did you find out about Cubie?
Sam: We were looking in the App Store for messaging apps that could hold big groups.
Dorothea: What happened was I was in the Imagine Dragons fandom, and looking for fellow fans to talk to. I think it was Sam (@thirty_lives on twitter) who invited me to the Imagine Dragons chat that was sprouting from its small group.
Madison: Well, I joined the imagine dragons fandom a little later than everyone else and was invited to join their Cubie chat! but I know the original people found the app because they wanted a place where more than just 10 people could talk.
What was it that first attracted you to Cubie?
Sam: Its ability to hold big groups and its cute design. And stickers. I love stickers.
Dorothea: Well the thought of talking to people who shared the same interests as me sprouted an interest in Cubie. I fell in love with the stickers and the fact that we can add 200 people to our chats. But yeah, Cubie is a beautiful way to communicate with your friends, share media, and just play around. I love drawing pictures too, but with my naughty friends they always turn out to be inappropriate. Oops.
Where do you guys live?
Madison: We all live across the world, some in United States and some in Europe! I specifically live in Connecticut, USA.
Dorothea: I live in New Jersey. Most of the members of Cubie live in the U.S., but we also have members in Germany and Italy! It’s super cool. The members who live in the states live mostly in New York, but also expand to Florida and California!
Sam: I live in New York.
Kaitlyn: South Florida.
How does Cubie help you stay in touch when you don’t live in the same area?
Dorothea: Well, since some of our members live out of the States, it would be impossible to keep in touch with them. We’ve tried exchanging phone numbers with the ones who don’t live in America, but of course that didn’t work. Plus, I already send 5,000 messages per month (not even kidding) so it’s a relief to have a way to talk to them that won’t cost me billions.
Sam: We can message from wherever we are.
Kaitlyn: It allows us to talk more in-depth than Twitter, and in a group setting.
What is it that makes Cubie special?
Sam: Its design and STICKERS!
Dorothea: It’s not like any other chat room app I’ve experienced. I love the stickers, especially when you get to make your own. The emoji looking ones always are funny to use. Especially (bigsmile). I think that’s what it’s called. I usually just tap the face and send it right away, so I can’t be sure. I love sending videos and pictures to my buddies. And I love to make drawings and send them. I looove the voice messages I can send too. They’re so much fun!
What percentage of your conversation is about Imagine Dragons?
Madison: To be honest I feel like only 30-40% of our conversations are actually about the band. most of our talks are just about our lives in general and drama that’s happening on Twitter!
So how many Imagine Dragons stickers have you made?
Sam: About 60.
Dorothea: Way too many to count.
Kaitlyn: I have like 27.
How can we reach more fans? Or even the band themselves?
Kaitlyn: Definitely advertise on Twitter! Getting the band to notice the app would be beyond cool.
Sam: Imagine Dragon sticker sets!
Tell us something funny that happened in New York.
Kaitlyn: We walked into this super fancy diner which was weird because diners aren’t fancy. The burgers were $20 so we ended up ordering water and then leaving!
Madison: We ordered water but left a nice tip! I made a video!
Sam: We saw a naked 80 year-old lady on the street.
Dorothea: It was disgusting.
How much did you spend on M&Ms? Was it worth it, or did you all have a candy coma that evening?
Madison: I spent like $10 oops. Sam spent like $20. He’s crazy. I ate them slowly because of my fear of getting too fat and getting bad acne because of sugar, but I’m sure everyone else downed theirs.
Kaitlyn: I spent $7.49 it was SO worth it. I ate it all on the sad 20 hour drive back to Florida.
Any last words? (We’re not going to kill you, just wondering if there’s anything else you’d like to say)
Sam: WE LOVE CUBIE!
Madison: Thank you for uniting me with the best friends I could ever have. I will treasure them forever. Thank you so much for interviewing me. It was so fun to answer the questions.
