About an hour or so ago, I Twittered that we should try to make #ONTD a trending topic. I mean, it couldn't be that hard -- right?
Well, the Trending Topics just updated. Did we make the list?
WE'RE NUMBER EIGHT!!!!!!!
AND WE DID THIS JUST THROUGH TWITTER, NOT EVEN BY PIMPING IT ON HERE (THOUGH WE KIND OF ARE NOW).
THANKS TO EVERYONE THAT HAS TWITTERED WITH #ONTD SO FAR, AND WE OFFICIALLY INVITE EVERYONE ELSE TO JOIN IN ON THE FUN NOW! :D
LET'S GET #ONTD TO NUMBER ONE!
eta: We're Number Four now!
eta: NUMBER ONE!
eta: Twitter hates #ONTD and forcibly removed us from the list. :(
People are seeking revenge by trending both #ohnotheydidnt and #FUQTWITTER -- I would condone this, but I don't want them to suspend my account or kill my family or something...
eta: Well, lookie there! Something just popped up as the Number 10 Trending Topic:
eta: Movin' on up... and the debut of #ohnotheydidnt at Number Nine:
SUSAN BOYLE BETTER GET OUT OF THE MOTHER
eta: #FUQTWITTER IS NOW NUMBER ONE! BUT #OHNOTHEYDIDNT IS MYSTERIOUSLY DELETED FROM THE LIST, HMM:
The only reason I can think of that explains Twitter's removal of both #ontd and #ohnotheydidnt from the Trending Topics is because they consider it a promotion or advertisement for the community. So, someone suggested we trend #ohyeswedid to celebrate the fact that we got them there in the first place, as well as the fact that #fuqtwitter is now the Number One Trending Topic. That's not a promotion, so it should be ok!
eta: #fuqtwitter is still Number One, and -- shockingly -- #ohnotheydidnt is back!
eta: We're Number One and Two!
eta: They deleted us again :(
Well, it was definitely fun while it lasted! Thanks to everyone who participated and had some fun with us tonight!
eta: Like an e-phoenix, rising from the ashes, #ohyeswedid appeared out of nowhere at Number Nine!
eta: Apparently Twitter hates Barack Obama, too, because #ohyeswedid has been removed...
