Hello yet again -
As many of you know, back in Season Four, my Long Live Locke posts began to be republished on DarkUFO, one of the biggest (if not the biggest) LOST fan sites. (I was going to add "on the web" -- but is there really any other kind of fan site than one that's online? I think not.) In order to get our readers even more excited about the so-close-we-can-almost-taste-the-imaginary-peanut-butter Season Six premiere, we're joining forces to host a Twitter-based contest.
Here's what you have to do:
1) Follow both @erikaolson and @DarkUFO on Twitter. (You must have a Twitter account in order to follow someone.) Andy (who runs DarkUFO) has several spoilerphobes following him -- including myself -- and therefore you can rest assured that he does not tweet any spoilers. He will write something like "SPOILER -- Episode 6.11 Centricity" and then include a link if you want to know more, but that's it. You must be following both of us in order to be eligible to win.
2) At some point before 10PM EST on Friday 1/8/10, tweet:
I'm following @erikaolson & @DarkUFO in order to win a #DharmaBeer can koozie to help ring in the final season of LOST http://bit.ly/5gqWry
(It'll probably work best just to cut and paste the previous sentence exactly as it is -- it's exactly 140 characters.)
3) Um, that's it. Anyone can enter from anywhere, as long as we can mail to you from the U.S. We will only accept one entry per Twitter ID. Andy will randomly select TEN winners on 1/9/10 and we'll announce them shortly thereafter.
The Dharma Beer can koozies were created by my husband as little party favors for this past fall's Zap2Locke Con, as well as for any LOST shindigs we host in the coming season (meaning, they're not available for purchase anywhere). They are collapsible white foam can holders that make any canned or bottled beverage look like a Dharma Beer. They even fit around some plastic and glass cups. You will be the envy of all your other Lostie friends (and Sawyer) if you have one, trust me.
At some point after we close this Twitter contest I will run a blog-based contest in order to give away ten more koozies to Long Live Locke readers, so if you are not on Twitter, just hang tight.
If you are on Twitter, then good luck!
