Why? We enjoy Twenty/20, and at the games they have a jumbo screen that includes showing tweets from people in the audience. Twenty/20 is much more compelling than test cricket, but, still, there’s enough dead time for the eyes and mind to wander. We made a couple half-hearted efforts to get on the jumbo screen last time, but Beckie and I: we like to go ALL IN. We didn’t want to drive away all our Twitter followers, though, so instead we made a dedicated Twitter account so we could engage in totally shameless and unrelenting pandering to try and get up there.
How’d it go? After the first tweet appears, we didn’t know if they’d go allow repeat-tweeters, but we kept giving it a go because Beckie didn’t get a photo the first time. We ended up with four different tweets being featured, which was certainly more than anybody else. We even had the team start following us! It did distract a bit from watching the game, but on the whole it certainly enhanced the experience and was a Twitter triumph.
Will you do it again? Maybe!
