Open Weeks are for the offseason, and we dread the off season, so let’s not talk about it.
If you are reading this, chances are you know how it works. The only rules for this “most unique” (that’s for fellow Blog Hawg BK, he loves the phrase) Twitter Style College Football Weekend Preview are that the fake user names can’t be longer than 15 characters (but may or may not be registered, already), the Tweets cannot exceed 140 characters, and I have to end each one with a smarmy hash tag.
Twice this season, I (READ: not really me) have Tweeted the (formerly fake) Tweets on our Blog Hawgs Twitter account (follow us on Twitter here) in the hope that the once-dormant account will generate something Twitter buffs call “Followers”.
But, I’m not going to lie. I doubt they will be Tweeted again. But, follow us, anyway. We occasionally Tweet something of worth (how’s THAT for a hard sell?).
It’s time to Fake Tweet.
