Hey, Stargate fans!  Ready for battle?

The Stargate Superdrive campaign is picking up steam as we barrel towards our scheduled tweet storm.  Friday, December 6th at 21:00 EST, 18:00 PST.  Tell you friends, family, fellow fans, acquaintances, and even strangers who may just have an interest in helping to lock down a new in-canon Stargate series.

Now I realize that the timing of this tweet storm may prove problematic for a lot of our European fans as the launch may fall anywhere from 2:00 – 3:00 a.m. depending on their home country.  There is, unfortunately, no ideal hour for worldwide fans that will also ensure optimum trending, so I’m going to suggest we do what we did last time and have two tweet storms.  Unlike the last go-round, I think that the second would be much more effective if it didn’t immediately follow days after the first but, rather, have its own build and launch. That way, Stargate fans across the globe will be able to take part over the course of the two scheduled events. Sounds good?

For now, however, let’s focus on that first tweet storm.  If you can make it, we’d greatly appreciate it.  If not, you can always use TweetDeck to schedule your tweets in advance (click on the link for details).

Like last time, we will use a dedicated hashtag for the event.  And like last time, this hashtag will only be revealed 15 minutes prior to the commencement of our tweet storm.  We’d love to reveal it in advance but experience has taught us that doing so results in people tweeting out the hashtag early – which inhibits our ability to trend.  So, we’re going to have to keep it under wraps for now.

The High Council is finishing work on a simple video tutorial that will clearly outline everything you need to know about tweeting up a storm.  Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, continuing my #SecretsOfDarkMatter series on twitter, offering informative, occasionally surprising, behind the scenes trivia about the show.  For instance, did you know…

  1. Really enjoying your comedic take on the Dark Matter still pictures you snapped back in the day. Too funny!! Keep ’em coming on Twitter.

  2. I totally didn’t math right on the time zone. I’m used to calculating to call friends and family back in the US and wasn’t until after posting I was like “Oops.” Yeah. Middle of the night here. I’ll hang onto my enthusiasm until we do a EuroTweet Storm.
