Prize Winners & Twitter Followers
Two Friday’s ago, we asked our community to have a little fun with us. It was spur of the moment…I felt like sending food to a few of the wonderful people who were following our twitter account. I tweeted the following:
Without even mentioning a specific prize, in a few short hours our followers had retweeted and recommended us over and over. We crossed the six hundred mark easily. What I found most compelling was that it wasn’t a handout spree; the people who started following us all seemed (and continue to be) interested in food and our relationship with it.
As promised, the next day I used a random follower tool (twitrand, if interested) to pick out two lucky winners from our community:
Congratulations to LovelyAnomaly and Hilary and thank you both for following us! I’m looking forward to finding some great local snacks to send your way. I’ll reach out to you both soon, or you can email me (if you get hungry!) at email@example.com.
After all the fun I had, I’m wondering if we should make small food giveaways a regular thing? We spend a lot of time here researching local food systems, and this could be a fun way to introduce you to the food being made near you.
What do you think?
