Social Networking is still in its infancy stages. Still, the debate between whether Facebook or Twitter is more superior can get heated between users. Luckily, SafeAuto Insurance tweets and updates their status so web browsers don’t have to choose between one and the other. For those of you who don’t follow SafeAuto Insurance, the following ten reasons will convince you to Play it Safe on Twitter! 1.) Commercial Reactions – SafeAuto is known for their memorable commercials. When you mention the word “SafeAuto,” the famous 1-800-SAFEAUTO jingle instantly comes to mind. The Twitter community gives us their opinion, and we respond!
2.) Interesting Facts- Who would have known that SafeAuto has a cornhole championship trophy on display in their cafeteria? SafeAuto tweets random, quirky, and entertaining facts.
3.) Hashtags – If you are unfamiliar with hashtags, they are often inserted in a tweet before relevant keywords. You’ll just have to check SafeAuto on Twitter to see how we incorporated #mustangsally and #littledeucecoupe into our post.
4.) Contests- While we constantly run contests on Facebook, we give our Twitter followers “hints” as to what the contest will be before they go public. We don’t reveal too much information since Twitter only gives us 140 characters.
5.) UFC Fighters – SafeAuto Insurance is a proud sponsor of the UFC. While you might not want to start an argument with a fighter face-to-face, constant retweets from SafeAuto Fight Team members allow you to take jabs from afar. (However, trash talking won’t have much merit with SafeAuto Fight Team members due to their stellar record in the Octagon).
6.) In the Pits – SafeAuto Insurance is also a proud sponsor of SafeAuto Racingand NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Driver Johnny Sauter and the No.13 SafeAuto Insurance truck. You’ll feel like you’re in the passenger seat with our in-depth race-day coverage.
7.) User Response – If you have a problem and let SafeAuto know about it on Twitter, we will have a customer service representative get back to you immediately. If we get a compliment, you’re more likely to get a shout-out via retweet. (:
8.) Humor – Providing drivers with state minimum auto insurance coverage is something we take seriously. While we don’t consider ourselves comedians, we try and keep it light on Twitter.
9.) Entertainment – If you’re bored or just procrastinating your to-do list, scroll down our 830 plus tweets and you’ll surely be amused. 10.) Content – You’ll definitely retweet our material after seeing videos like thisand articles like this

One of the most important factors of purchasing a new car, especially in these times, is its overall cost at the pump. Courtesy of industry researcher TrueCar.com, here are the Top Ten Most Fuel-Efficient Cars, along with what you’d spend each year on gas for each.
10. 2011 Toyota Camry Hybrid
Combined EPA rating: 32.7 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,616
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $2,295
Surprisingly, this car gets lower mileage than a pure gasoline engine, as well as its Lexus counterparts, but it does come with a much nicer price!
9. 2011 Hyundai Elantra
Combined EPA rating: 33.1 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,595
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $2,266
The Elantra has nice styling, and has received positive consumer reviews. It doesn’t have a hybrid system, it’s just darn efficient!
8. 2011 Honda CR-Z
Combined EPA rating: 33.4 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,579
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $2,243
The CR-Z is a new model from Honda, designed for maximum fuel economy. One drawback: this car only has two seats. No wonder it’s so efficient!
7. 2011 Lexus HS 250h
Combined EPA rating: 34.5 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,529
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $2,171
Lexus (actually Toyota) does it again, adding a hybrid system into a luxury model. Who says you have to trade efficiency for comfort?
6. 2011 Chevrolet Volt
Combined EPA rating: 37.1 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,424
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $2,022
The widely anticipated Chevy Volt finally started rolling off the assembly line this year, but its battery/generator combination is best used for short trips.
5. 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid (and sibling Ford Fusion)
MSRP: $35,455 ($29,100)
Combined EPA rating: 38.6 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,368
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $1,944
The MKZ and its Ford Fusion counterpart have received high marks for reliability. You’ll also be getting a combined 38.6 mpg, which is a nice plus.
4. 2011 Honda Civic Hybrid
Combined EPA rating: 41.3
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,2792
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $1,816
If you like the fact that new fuel-efficient technology has made it into the historically reliable Civic, this could be a great car for you.
3. 2011 Honda Insight
Combined EPA rating: 41.3 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,279
The Insight recently got a design refresh from its previous Robocop-looking model, adding two rear doors in the process, a big visual improvement.
2. 2011 Lexus CT 200h
Combined EPA rating: 41.6 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,269
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $1,803
Needing some luxury? With this Lexus, you’ll be driving in style and you might have to actually tell people it’s a hybrid since it doesn’t look like one.
1. 2011 Toyota Prius
Combined EPA rating: 49.6 mpg
Cost per 15,000-mile year at $3.52/gal.: $1,064
Cost per $15,000-mile year at $5/gal.: $1,512
Everyone knows about the Prius, and despite what some may think about the design, it will certainly not take hold of your wallet at the pump!
