Today I got an idea that I would like to try out. I have no idea if it's been done before. But nevertheless I want to give it a try.
I will host a small quiz via Twitter, the reason for this are two. First of all I am a huge quiz fan. I like to watch quiz shows on TV, and set me up with a game of Trivial Pursuit and I will be quite happy for a while. Here is my idea how a quiz on Twitter would work:
1. I post a question using a hashtag (#mattiasquiz for example).
2. The participants responds to me with a Direct Message.
3. The participant who leaves the first correct answer gets a point.
4. First to five points win.
Will this be possible? I think so, the only real issue I see is how to get the questions out so that all participants are aware of a new question being posted. Maybe I could post one question each hour? Is there a way to set that up so that the tweet with a question is sent at a specific time?
Do you see other problems with this setup? Please leave a comment.
I have advertised this experiment today on Twitter and two bold gentlemen have responded that they want to participate (@CraigTaylor74 and @kstenqvist). But I would like to have a few more to join us. If you are interested don't hesitate, send me a tweet or leave a comment here and you are more than welcome to join us.
