Twitter Trivia is a game I thought of while riding home from work. I was listening to the radio, and heard a song, and could not think of the artist. I thought “I wish I could Twitter the lyrics to my friends”, and the light bulb went off.
Why not use Twitter as a platform for a trivia game? Most everyone loves trivia right? For example: In Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, what philosopher is mentioned? (Answer below)
So I’m giving it a shot. I’ll even throw in some prizes to get it off the ground. (Amazon gift certificates? Any input here?) Here are the rules.
1. Follow funtrivia on Twitter
2. Twitter all your friends to follow funtrivia (OK, not officially a rule, but you might as well; the more the merrier.)
3. Starting Monday, March 3rd, I’ll begin twittering trivia questions (although I’ll lob a few practice questions this week, to work out the wrinkles.) They can range from movies to sports, music to geography, and everything in between.
4. The first three people that reply with the correct answer will be given points (3 points for being first, 2 for second, 1 point for third). At the end of March, I’ll tally up the results, report the winners, and hand out the prizes.
That’s it. If it takes off (like I hope it does), we’ll continue the game, build a leaderboard (already built it), a champion’s page, badges for the winners, get better prizes, etc. If it doesn’t, you can go back to reading my Twitters about the cat hair on my couch.
So tell all your friends, and let’s try something new with Twitter. Any questions (or suggestions), ask them in the comments, and I’ll respond.
Oh,and the answer is Galileo. You remember, just after they sing “Thunderbolt and lightning – very, very frightening me! Galileo, Galileo” And don’t even tell me you’re not seeing the four Wayne’s World dudes in that fresh 1976 Pacer when you read that.
How can this not be fun? Start following funtrivia today!
