The season finale of Almost Human is already upon us, and the folks over at the AHTF have organized a full scale social media event to celebrate! The campaign will work just like a Fringenuity campaign, but for anyone joining us for the first time (or a little rusty), here’s a refresher on the way it works:
TWITTER EVENT PROTOCOL
The chosen hashtag is #AlmostHumanLives.
The event will begin at 7pm EST, Monday, March 3rd – one hour before Almost Human airs.
Don’t use #AlmostHumanLives before the designated time: using the tag prematurely hampers trending chances.
You may spread the word about the event by placing parentheses around the #, like so: (#)AlmostHumanLives. This allows us to promote the campaign without interfering with trending algorithms.
One # term per Tweet. Multiple hashtags will keep a tweet from being counted towards the trend.
Lots of people tweeting matters more than the number of tweets.
Those with lots of followers help out a lot!
We can discuss aspects of the show in our tweets -TRY to include Almost Human (with no #) in your tweet if possible. We want to pique the interest of non fans.
Private accounts must have their locked status removed, as the tweets from these accounts do not count toward the trend tally.
Retweets are the easiest way to help out the trending effort. Just search for the hashtag, and retweet the ones that are interesting to you. If you know how to use a Twitter application suite like TweetDeck or HootSuite, this is made even easier.
Don’t forget to check in at TV Tag (formerly Get Glue.)
If you are in the U.S. and have an iPhone or Android phone, give Viggle a try. Their check-ins are included in the data of several prominent social television analysis companies.
Some of our talented artists have created these awesome posters to promote the event, please post them everywhere you can!
