WhedonTrivia: Bringing Trivia to Twitter. "Our old Buffy/Angel LiVE Trivia Contests have hit Twitter."
This all stems from a past interest in doing a WhedonTriviaMobile thing by text messaging. Twitter can be set up and connected to a phone for no more than the already-monthly text messaging fee put forth in the monthly bill a person pays for their service, but it can also be accessed easily online if a contestant doesn't have text messaging. Here's how it works:
Whedon fans sign up for Twitter and follow WhedonTrivia at http://www.twitter.com/whedontrivia. A Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Doctor Horrible, Dollhouse, or even actor-related question will be twittered out to the followers (aka contestants) everyday. The followers then reply @whedontrivia with their answer to the day's question. At the end of each month, the number of right answers for each follower will be counted (yes, I realize this will take a long time) and the followers tied for having the most correct answers will have their names put into a cup and one will be drawn randomly. This person will be mailed whatever prize we're giving away that month.
As always, prize donations by fans are appreciated officially. Currently we have a BuffyBot figure and a new copy of Dark Congress by Christopher Golden in stock.
The goal is to have at least 25 questions sent through Twitter each month. This gives a few days of skipping for any reason, be it lack of time or lack of internet access.
Please feel free to comment on the linked blog with your questions, comments, and/or concerns, and make sure to sign up and follow us at Twitter today. The questions will begin in January in order to gather a nice group of followers first.
