Ok fellow Twin Cities Web geeks, it’s time to again get away from your computers and get social! Aric McKeown from the Least Dangerous Game is back for a second season.
Every other Saturday (starting this Saturday at Noon), Aric will be “hiding” somewhere in the Twin Cities and will be sending out Twitter clues to his whereabouts. The first one who finds him wins a cool prize. For those on Twitter, here’s where you can follow him.
This is one of the coolest uses of Twitter I’ve seen. It gained WCCO exposure last year and will most likely gain more exposure this year. Different businesses have since used this idea for their own.
Regarding the LDG, it’s a fun way to meet new people and learn more about the Twin Cities. I tried it a few times last year and found him once, but was a few minutes too late for the prize as someone else just found him at a weird artsy exhibit at the State Fairgrounds. It was fine though as we all hung out and chatted, and I happen to be fond of weird artsy stuff.
