How to Participate in a Tweet Blast When You Aren’t Available

There has been some concern over the time frames of our campaigns. While we would love to provide times that would work out for everyone, this is nearly impossible, especially since we have many International fans.

The only option we have is to have events at various times through out the summer. Some times will work for you, other’s won’t. BUT that doesn’t mean you can’t participate still.

Many Twitter Applications allow scheduling of tweets. This will allow you to participate in all the Tweet Blasts even if you’ll be at work or in bed sleeping!

I (Pamala) personally use TweetDeck. On Wednesday even though I was in Urgent Care with my daughter, I was still Tweeting. Why? Because earlier in the day I knew I would not be able to sit down at the computer due to my kids being home, so I wrote all my tweets out before hand, scheduled them in TweetDeck and let it do it’s thing during the Tweet Blast. For our next event, I’ll be picking my kids up from school and unable to Tweet for most of the hour, so I’ll spend about 30 minutes in the morning scheduling Tweets to be sent out during that time.

There are other apps that you can use as well so you don’t have to use TweetDeck. TweetDeck though is an app owned by Twitter so the functionality may be the best.

Another App you can use is HootSuite. I have used this app before, but switched to TweetDeck.

These are the only two I honestly recommend for doing this. Also apparently TweetDeck is the only app that will allow you to attach a photo to a scheduled Tweet (HootSuite may not have this option).

But this option will allow anyone to participate in our Twitter Blasts no matter where you are in the world or how busy you are!

I know it would be nice if we could schedule so that everyone could participate but that’s not an option, so we thought we’d let you know a method that could help you participate even if you can’t be there at the time.

Also in addition, TweetDeck is a great organizational tool for Twitter. I have lists for Person of Interest, I have groups, I filter out posts about Jim Caviezel, Henry Cavill, Sherlock, NASCAR. I have a column set up specifically for the hashtag ‪#‎PersonOfInterest‬.

This allows me to track what’s being said and how things are going when I’m online during a blast. It’s just a very good program in my opinion and it works on both PC and MAC.

If you have any questions let us know, I have one of the page moderators testing it out and learning the reigns and since I use it on a daily basis we can help anyone having any trouble with it.

Person Of Interest Fan Twitter Blast

Our next event has been set up to blast Twitter to show our love for Person Of Interest.

This Twitter blast is going to center on why we want more Person Of Interest. We’re going to try for a world wide trend on Twitter.

Twitter doesn’t just track hashtags but it also tracks phrases that are used within a period of time. So we want to see if we can trend a phrase this time and what better way than telling CBS and WarnerBros why we want more Person Of Interest?

So during this two hour Twitter Blast we’ll be using the following phrase:

We Want More Person Of Interest…

then you would list why you want more POI. You can tag other twitter accounts at the end of your tweet like @cbs or @warnerbrostv as well.

Example: We Want More Person Of Interest because of the great writers involved! @cbs @warnerbrostv

No hashtags are needed for this Twitter blast. Do Not Use Hashtags at all during this event.

Please spread the word about this event! The more people who participate the better.

For those who are not as savvy with Twitter this is perhaps the most easy of the events you’ll participate in! All you have to do tweet with We Want More Person Of Interest and then write out why. It’s simple, and easy to do. If you want to tag someone in it after you write it out, you can. Most important though is to not use the Hashtag (#PersonOfInterest) during the two hours. If you do Twitter will filter it out and the trend won’t work.

Remember to be respectful please. We know a lot of people are on edge but it helps to be respectful.

Also if you have an idea of something you’d like to do, please let us know. We have all hiatus to do these events and we want to keep them up, and we will need your help to do that. So ideas are welcome.

We will also be doing classic Twitter Blasts in the future so be on the look out for those.

A couple of tips for those who may not be able to participate or can’t stay the whole time:

1. Download a Twitter app like Tweetdeck. This way you can schedule your Tweets in advance and they will post automatically without you having to be at the computer.

2. Write your Tweets out in a document before hand so you can copy and paste rather than spend time writing during the event.

Some cautions when Tweeting:

1. Don’t tweet too fast. Twitter will “throttle” you if you do. If you do several tweets within a minute, try to take a small break so you don’t get put in time out.

2. DO NOT post the same tweet over and over again.

3. If you do RT Tweets do it slowly. Twitter will put you in time out for doing too many RT’s in a small time period.

4. Do share pictures, quotes, etc during this time!

Person of Interest Fan Campaign

‘Person of Interest’ has been renewed for a 5th season but reports are saying for only 13 episodes (essentially half a season). For fans of the series, this is a great disappointment and they are not taking it lying down. During the summer hiatus as well as throughout the 5th season, fans will be taking to Twitter and Facebook in an effort to show CBS  just how great ‘Person of Interest’ is and that it’s worth a full season of episodes.

Person of Interest 4.22 YHWH Recap

Well, the season finale is finished and has left us wondering what’s to come for the team? I enjoyed the finale and think it’s opened up a few new ways. Today I’m going to try to do more than just a recap since it’s the finale and I won’t be doing one of these recaps until the new season starts. If you haven’t watched the episode yet, don’t read this.

There Be No Spoilers

Usually I try to keep up with postings of press releases and photos but I decided for these last two episodes of the season I myself am going to be avoiding spoilers so I won’t be posting anything that could possibly give anything away.

I really want to enjoy the finale without any preconceived notions about what is happening. I’ve had too many a finale and or twist ruined by spoilers. I’m hoping it won’t happen this time around.

But I will post my recap like usual next week.

Person Of Interest 4.20 Terra Incognita Recap

I have to say, I was impressed with yesterday’s episode of ‘Person of Interest.’ I had been dreading it, thinking it would build on some conspiracy theories and have those who can’t seem to move past the death of Carter, get all up in arms again, and while it may still do that, there’s not much argument that you can make in this to say that maybe she’s alive or that she’s needed on the show again. This episode showcased an inner struggle within John in regards to his behaviors with people close to him. Honestly I thought that was great and enjoyed watching it.
