Another day, another successful tweet-fest run-thru. Here are the stats from yesterday’s event…
Although we had more contributors, we had fewer tweets and a smaller reach, but that can be attributed to a number of things: the lack of influencers, a few miscues, and, of course, soccer (aka football). There were more than a few instances where participants used the wrong hashtag, more than one hashtag, or, in some cases, no hashtag at all – but that’s okay because the whole point of the test-drive was to shake off the rust, work out the kinks, and educate everyone on how it works. And, now that we’re all on the same page, we’re going to BLOW UP twitter next weekend. Specifically…
Friday, March 9th at 6:00 p.m. PST/9:00 EST and again –
Saturday, March 10th at 7:00 p.m. GMT.
The first is for Stargate fans in North America, the second for Stargate fans in the rest of the world BUT if you can make both, we’d love to see ya. (Incidentally, I will be participating in both but don’t let that guilt you into feeling you should as well. I mean, sure, the Stargate we know and love is at risk of being wiped away with a single reboot, but play it by ear and see how it goes.)
What’s the deal with this campaign and what’s at stake? Well, check out this awesome video by Didi Chandouidoui, “Stargate A Besoin De Vous” (Stargate Needs You), the greatest pitch for why you should step up and help. If you speak French, I’m sure you’ll agree. If not – trust me, it’s pretty amazing.
Hey, check this out. The creation and building of the SGU nexus console (via confracto):

Alrighty. Starting tomorrow, I start reaching out to some old friends in the hopes they have time to pop in and say hi during the upcoming tweet-storms.
You never know who’ll be dropping by, so make sure to circle the dates!
