Legend of the Seeker Fans Organizing April 26, 2012 Tweetathon

April 22, 2012

If you’re wondering whether Legend of the Seeker fans are hibernating, wonder no more. They have two Tweetathons coming up. The first is scheduled for April 26, which is later this week. You can read all the details at the Confessor and Seeker Society’s Save Our Seeker forum and the LOTS.org Save Our Seeker Forum.

Here is the opening part of Laura’s (SOT_FAN) message to Seeker fan everywhere. You’ll need to click on one of the links above to read the full message:

Please save the date!

We’ll be twitting the hashtag: #SaveTheSeeker on Twitter, Thursday, April 26 to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of the Save Our Seeker campaign. It’s been that long and we’re still fighting.

The Tweetathon starts at 12:00 noon PDT and ends at 2:00 pm PDT. You can check your time zone here.

To have better chances of trending #SaveTheSeeker worldwide, please focus your tweets (or schedule your tweets) between 12 noon and 2pm Pacific (USA) Daylight Time. Supposedly, if we also start tweeting a couple of minutes before the set time of 12 noon, there’s a better chance of jump-starting the trend, so please give that a try too.

Please Spread the word on LiveJournal, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Forums, deviantArt, You Tube, etc..

I cannot help but feel flattered that the hashtag this time is “#savetheseeker” although I doubt it had anything to do with this blog. Unfortunately, it seems that Twitter has a long memory and you’re not allowed to reboot old hash tags if you want to trend.

At least, that is my understanding.

The goal here is to get the hashtag to trend so that people around the world see it and click on it.

We have a 2-hour window in which to conduct the Tweetathon. The more people who join in, the better. You can use services like Tweetdeck and Hootsuite (to name just 2 of many) to schedule your Tweets in advance. Some fans have 2 or 3 Twitter accounts so they can switch between them when their accounts are temporarily blocked by Twitter (this is sometimes lovingly referred to as “Twitter Jail”).

The other upcoming Twitter event is the May 13 Mother Confessor Day Tweetathon. We held one two years ago that was immensely successful. This year Bridget Regan has 2 reasons to celebrate the day — She is now a mommy in real life.

Please check out the discussions at LOTS.org and the Confessor and Seeker Society. I’m soliciting ideas and feedback, and I want to make sure everyone knows about the Mother Confessor Day Tweetathon.

BTW — just so I mention Craig Horner in this article, remember that he now has an official Craig Horner Twitter Account. Craig recently announced that he had wrapped up filming the “Joey Dakota” pilot. Of course, we all wish him well and much success — but we’re also hoping to see him come back as Richard Cypher/Rahl.

Of course, if you’re not following the @seekerfans account on Twitter you should be — you’ve be reminded almost daily about both Tweetathons. 🙂

Hope to see you there. After all, we’re here to Save Our Seeker and bring about a third season of Legend of the Seeker. No one goes home until the job is done.
