I’m happy to announce the return of the half twitter bird, half elf, in 2011 – twelfdays.com.
Quick! Think of 12 folks you can publicly encourage via twitter over the next 12 days, and use the hashtag “#twelfdays“.
What started out as a crazy eleventh-hour idea, last year, soon experienced ridiculous levels of participation. It was so cool to see folks taking time out to encourage others during the Christmas season.
The MediaBLEEP team had lots of nifty plans to make everything more awesome for 2011, but then life happened, and it all fell off of the radar. However, even in all of the craziness, our mission is still pure at heart for this initiative. We want to partner together to change the culture on twitter – if only for 12 days.
It’s about OTHERS, December 13-25! Seriously, pick one person per day, during the 12 days before Christmas, and encourage them publicly through Twitter.
Why? We’ve all experienced the occasional self-centeredness, rants, and one-way conversation Twitter can bring out sometimes. Let’s join together to change that during the next 12 days.
That’s what Christmas should be about anyway. Offering encouraging words is one way we can give this season, and in some cases to those who are least deserving. Isn’t that what Jesus did?
