On Saturday, February 6th 2016, join us for our second tweet-a-thon. This is Millennium‘s 20th anniversary year, and with The X-Files appearing to indicate a successful revival of the 1013 stable, we’re looking to encourage FOX to turn its eye to Frank Black.
With news outlets reporting Chris Carter’s vocal interest in a return to Millennium as The X-Files makes the headlines, we feel we should do what this campaign has always set out to do: support the aspirations of Millennium‘s creators.
Followers of this campaign will know Chris has never shied away from acknowledging his interest and desire in a return to Millennium, nor has lead actor Lance Henriksen or producer/writer Frank Spotnitz. In fact we’ve yet to interview a member of cast/crew of the show who didn’t feel a return was not undue. Here’s an opportunity to support them by showing 20th Century Fox Television your interest in a return to Millennium with tweets!
We wish to keep this Tweet-A-Thon as simple and respectful as we possibly can. Simple to participate and respectful in execution!
If you are a Twitter user, and I’m sure most of you have access to a Twitter account even if you’re not a regular Twitter user, we would like you to tweet your wish to see Millennium on FOX with the hashtag #MillenniuM20th between 12-2pm Pacific time (3-5pm Eastern) Saturday, February 6th. We are aware Twitter is a global resource, but we’re keeping it simple. If you can’t make the allotted period, still tweet, but do your best to get a tweet in that window if you can!
Our Tweet-A-Thon target is 20th Century Fox Television and their official Twitter account @20centuryfoxTV .
We wanted to use a hashtag that was simple and could get our point across to FOX’s production company, 20th Century Fox Television who made Millennium. After much debate, we settled on the hashtag #MillenniuM20th. Make sure when you send your tweets to 20th Century Fox Television that you include the hashtag!
Tweets and Retweets
What is a Retweet you ask? A Retweet is a re-posting of someone else’s Tweet. Twitter’s Re-tweet feature helps you and others quickly share that Tweet with all of your followers. This is one of the easiest ways to get our Tweet-A-Thon hashtag to trend. All you need to do is do a search for the hashtag and click retweet. It’s that simple!
Are you unable to live tweet with the rest of the Millennium fans during the Tweet-A-Thon?? Well, you are in luck, there is still a way you can take part in the event. You can now schedule your Tweets in advance and still be part of the Tweet-A-Thon. We suggest you use the site FutureTweets. It’s free and all you have to do is sign up for an account. You can setup your account and find more information here.
A big thank you to Christopher Brielmaier for creating the video and promotional designs (and to Lance Henriksen for the exclusive voice over).
Here are some fairly obvious tips:
- Make sure your Twitter account is public.
- Ensure that @20centuryfoxTV is in your tweet and the hashtag #MillenniuM20th – rest is up to you!
- Only use one # per tweet.
- Do your best to get your friends and fellow fans to retweet your tweet!
- Be respectful in your comments. Communications with 20th Century Fox Television, FOX, and TenThirteen have always been very friendly and amicable – don’t spoil that by presuming there is some “bad guy” here who needs outing. There isn’t. Respect is due!
