Why #WickedWednesday

by Carl Natale on May 26, 2010

Well I’m declaring this #WickedWednesday in Twitter. I know someone already has declared it. But I’m taking it over for my own selfish purposes.

What am I going to do with it? Well I’m going to show very little extra originality and mimic #FollowFriday – but two days earlier. This is the day I’m going to pick a few of my favorite tweeps and recognize them on Twitter with a #WickedWednesday call out.

Why? This is a chance to recognize some interesting tweeps on a day that’s not full of other recommendations. Besides, I live in Maine. So it’s all wicked.

Who is going to make the tweets? I don’t know. Someone who interests and/or informs me mostly. And it’s just a few each week. So don’t feel left out if you’re not mentioned. Maybe next week. And maybe I don’t know about you. I am accepting nominations.

What if I don’t get to you? Well, get over yourself. Really. This is just a Twitter beauty contest and you’re better than that. But there’s no slight intended. Cool and friendly gets you recognized faster than whiny and needy.

When Wednesday rolls around, I will tweet out the praises of a single tweep and space them out throughout the day. Later I will round them up into a blog post so everyone gets some sort of notice.

Why should you care? I don’t know. You’re not going to get any money. Doubt my paltry following will make you famous. But you might find someone wicked.
