While passing the time in Twitter Rehab here at INVITATIONS I was daydreaming about Twitter and came up with an idea for a new game (and yet another way to feed my addiction -- after all, the most popular games are addictive, aren't they!) I managed to sneak my Treo with me into a supply closet to log onto Twitter and check it out.
Here's how it works:
THE NAME OF THE GAME: REPEAT TWEET!
To rearrange the words in a Tweet to create new meaning.
You must use ALL the words in the original Tweet and your resulting Tweet MUST have some reasonably intelligible meaning.
For the first re-wording of a Tweet (First Generation) you get 5 points.
For re-wording someone else's re-wording (Second Generation) you get 10 points.
If there is a Third Generation (re-wording someone's Second Generation) you get 15 points.
You get 25 BONUS POINTS if your REPEAT TWEET gets a reply from the original Tweeter (and they have no idea you just rearranged and spit back their own words.)
It started with me spotting this Tweet from Chris Brogan:
To which I REPEAT TWEETed:
Soon Becky McCray joined the fray. She Tweeted:
Which of course I REPEAT TWEETed as:
Which of course COMPLETELY CONFUSED Tony Katz. You get the idea...
So, let me know what you think of REPEAT TWEET and please post your examples of REPEAT TWEETS in the comments below. Of course, if you spend too much time playing REPEAT TWEET you may need to fill out an application form for a bed here at INVITATIONS rehab. Perhaps I'll see you soon!
