Twitter Celebration Monday Night 11/25/13: Join us to promote #TheKilling & thank Netflix!



Ready to party with us and celebrate #TheKilling on Twitter with us this Monday?  This Monday, November 25, 2013, our fan group will conduct a celebratory Twitter campaign to thank Netflix for picking up the exclusive rights to Season 4 of The Killing.  We also want to encourage others, our friends, our family, and our followers, to watch our favorite show!  We also want to use the time to thank those people, including fans, involved in fighting so hard for Season 4.  Please show up and celebrate…and remember that EVERY single time #TheKillingFam has rallied for the show on Twitter, we have trended nationwide.  I expect no less out of you on Monday!  I wouldn’t be surprised at all if #Netflix trended too, since every time we trended with #TheKilling, so did #Netflix.  #Netflix surely noticed.  Let’s show them what we can do!  As usual, I have included our Twitter campaign rules and times below.  We have also updated our Tweet Bank with tweets you can easily copy and paste when you run out of clever things to say!  You ready?  Let’s rock.

TWITTER TIMES: Please commit to give us at least two hours of your time on Monday, November 25, 2013 at 10 PM EST/9PM CST/8 PM MST/7 PM PST.

TWITTER RULES:  One of the primary goals of a Twitter campaign is to see if a particular topic, highlighted by a hash tag (literally, just the # sign in front of a phrase), can “trend” as a popular discussion topic on Twitter.  Twitter is very secretive about its magic algorithm for trending, but we have relied upon the expertise of our resident mathematician to give us some statistical analysis to help us improve our chances of trending.   Here are the EASY rules for building our #TheKilling trend!  Follow them exactly!

  • Log in to your Twitter account 10 minutes before the designated start time in your time zone, ready to tweet.  So, if you live in Dallas,Texas (Central Time, you need to be logged in, ready to go on this Monday, November 25, 2013 at 8:50PM. 
  • Our hash tag for the Twitter campaign is #TheKilling.  It is short, simple, and we might get some help from other general conversation about the show on Twitter during the appointed Twitter times.  Use the hash tag #TheKilling on MOST but not ALL of your tweets.  It needs to look like the flow of normal Twitter conversation.  If you need a rule, use the hash tag for 3 out of 5 tweets. 
  • Automatic  retweets (as in, you just clicked “Retweet”) DO NOT COUNT for trending purposes on Twitter.  Instead, if you are on your phone, click “Quote Tweet,” copying the body of the tweet, and type “RT” in front of the tweeted text, resulting in a new tweet from your account that COUNTS for our trend. 
  • Please try to keep your tweets SHORTER than 110 characters or close to that, so other followers may grab your brilliant tweet and “Quote Tweet” it without being over the 140 Twitter character limit.  When you have exhausted all of your brilliance, please DO NOT STOP TWEETING.  “Quote Tweet” other tweets you like or copy and paste any or all of the tweets from our “The Killing Tweet Bank” below and tweet them from your account.  Just keep tweeting!
  • We appreciate every single tweet, but to really help with the Twitter trend, you need to tweet AT LEAST 6-10 times per hour for a TWO hour period.  Many of our users will literally tweet until Twitter locks them from tweeting anymore, sending the account to “Twitter Jail” or a “Twitter Timeout.”  If that happens, don’t panic and wait approximately 60 minutes.  You will be back in the saddle! 
  • Be careful about crazed tweeting leading up the event.  The idea behind a trend is see a NEW conversation topic start on Twitter. We cannot do that if the fans are all tweeting thousands of items all day.  If you are sent to Twitter Jail or a Twitter Timeout before the event, you should know that another suspension during the 24-hour period will probably result in a timeout that usually lasts at least a day.  If that happens, check your email and fill out the form from Twitter for faster restoration. 
  • We STRONGLY encourage our followers who cannot be at the events live to use TweetDeck!  Download it today. It is free and will allow you to schedule your tweets using #TheKilling during the appointed times in your time zone.  So, if you are a Redskins or a 49ers Fan (and Heaven help you, if you are) and you must be glued to your television for Monday Night Football, go for it, but not before you set up your tweets with the #TheKilling.  We encourage you to set up a tweet every 4-8 minutes for the two hour period.  If the game is lousy, you can always join in and live tweet while TweetDeck continues to push out your scheduled tweets. 
  • Watch your TRENDS!  If you see #TheKilling trend nationwide or in your area, take a picture and tweet it to us at @TheKillingonAMC.  We want to share with all of the fans!  If we do trend, don’t stop tweeting.  We have successfully trended multiple times during our two hour window every time! 
  • LASTLY and IMPORTANTLY, our trend needs to look like a conversation, a natural dialogue between fans of “The Killing.”  In order to facilitate this, our primary account and other fans may poise trivia questions or opinion polls during the Twitter campaign.  When you see them, REPLY to them and use the hash tag (#TheKilling) in your answer.  So, if you saw @TheKillingonAMC tweet, “Do you think Linden & Holder should get together in Season 4 of #TheKilling?” , you might respond: “HECK YES! #TheKilling”  See?  Pretty darn easy.  Just respond and use the hash tag (#TheKilling) in your answer. 

We’ve heard plenty of fans express a desire to help us but then fret about running out of things to say.  For those fans (and the ones who will tweet so many things they need 100 extra options), we offer “The Killing Tweet Bank.”  You may copy and paste these examples verbatim into your tweet box and tweet these thoughts as if they are your very own!  Some are cheesy.  Most are based on dialogue from “The Killing.”  All of these examples comply with every rule above.  If you are tweeting about “The Killing” regularly during every day (and we encourage you do so), please feel free to use these tweets any time you like and as often as you like. 

Thank you so much for your willingness to help us!  If you have questions about these rules, tweet us at @TheKillingonAMC or send us an email at: We know this seems complicated, but if you adhere to the rules and tweet often, we’re going to get there.  We love you, #TheKillingFam.  You make it real for us! 

Oh, we have our drinks prepared for the celebration as well.  We selected French Champagne and Swedish Vodka. It only seemed fitting.  Won’t you join us?
