Like The A-Team’s Hannibal Smith, I love it when a plan comes together.  And this one is coming along nicely.  No need to construct gas pump flamethrowers or figure out a way to modify a wood chipper into a cabbage launcher.  All you need to do is head on over to twitter and follow @StargateNow.  Less than two weeks out from our back-to-back Stargate tweet storms and the official twitter home of the #DriveToRevive campaign already has 8500 followers.   Let’s try to make it 10k by this weekend.

As we ready for the next Friday’s double event, the StargateInitiative is going to do a little dry run.  This Friday, March 2nd at 9 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. PST, we’re going to do a little pre-tweetstorm to show everyone how it’s done.  Swing on by and take part in the run-through.  Connect with fellow fans.  Check out some awesome Stargate-related pics, gifs, videos, and stories!

A refresher on The Rules of the Tweet-Storm:

#1: FOLLOW – Make sure you’re following @StargateNow

#2: CHECK IN – Approximately 15 minutes before the appointed time, @StargateNow will be revealing that night’s unique hashtag.  This hashtag should appear in all of your tweets.

#3: BE PROMPT – Start tweeting at the appointed time, but not before as it diminishes our efforts at trending.

#4: USE THE DEDICATED HASHTAG – Make sure your tweet includes that night’s dedicated hashtag.

#5: ONLY USE THAT ONE HASHTAG – For some reason, tweets with more than one hashtag don’t count toward trending so be sure to only use the hashtag of the night.

Hey, is it just me or has there been an increase in Stargate articles and interviews over the past week or so?  Click the links to check them out:

There was also this Stargate article on SyFy (Yeah, I know. *ptui*) that was quite interesting.

I feel like there’s something that we don’t know. Nothing about a new Stargate now suddenly the idea is blowing up with support from everyone.

Doing as much tweeting as I can!

Bought a 3D printer.
Attempted to print a Stargate.
It didn’t go very well, and ended in spaghetti!!

I’ll keep trying!! Two weeks to go.

A few other things to note:

1. Set your location on your Twitter profile.

2. RTs are good but quote tweets with an added comment and the hashtag are better because they add to the conversation.

3. Avoid Twitter Jail.

4. Don’t just add the trend slogan & an image/gif. Always add a unique message.

Let’s go for a worldwide trend.

Cheers Chev

Oh and only type the trend hashtag in your tweet once.

Cheers Chev

I too need many reminders. I have my phone set for today because I need to buy tickets at a set time, and will be super sad if I forget.

Have been WooHoo!-ing in the background & getting ready to ride the Tweet storm rehearsal. But… have a prior commitment Fri. evening. Will check @StargateNow Sat. night to see if there’s anything Gate-trending I can join for rehearsal. Had a blast tweeting for hours for Team Raza and Dark Matter last fall. Now it’s time to #RockTheGate ! grin

okdontpanic, is it okay if we borrow your banners for Tweet campaigning? Much obliged if so!

Looking forward to being a part of this journey! Twitter jail be damned!!!lol
