#ToTheNielsens

11041102_10152697335786949_499087292104547570_n.jpgDid you know that the Nielsen Company (yes, the TV ratings people) monitors Twitter chatter about shows for a few hours before and after each first-run episode of all the shows on TV? We did Outlander proud last year and it’s time for us to rise to the challenge again.

Are you almost DYING trying to force yourself to wait until Saturday to watch the first new episode? There’s NO reason to wait. Watch. Cry. Swoon. Boo. Hiss. (The Comte!) Repeat as needed. On Saturday at 9 pm Eastern (6 pm Pacific) watch again and live-tweet with us for fun and for the Nielsen Twitter ratings.

A few minutes before the official start time, go to Twitter and search #Outlander then choose “Live” on the top menu. That will give you all the tweets in real time. When the episode starts, tweet your reactions. I think I’ll start with “You bloody man. I knew you’d make me cry. #Outlander” (I cry easily.) Watch the show with an occasional glance at the feed. Reply to someone you don’t follow (yet.) RT and add a comment of your own. Tweet screenshots. Be funny. Be moving. Be heard.

Of course we always want to trend and that’s a very real possibility this week but let’s make Nielsen sit up and take notice too, OK? Remember the usual trend rules – 2 words plus the hash-tag, fewer tweets from more accounts are better than more tweets from fewer accounts and a screenshot is worth a thousand characters (and a Starz watermarked photo is worth more than that).

We have several copies of TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly. We’ll offer one to a random fan based on our standing on Nielsen on Sunday according to this formula: 1 winner if we’re 5th, 2 if we’re 4th, 3 if we’re 3rd, 4 if we’re 2nd and 5 if we win the night.

Twitter Parties 4/2 and 4/3

Cerf0IbWAAAFzl-

As great as watching Outlander under any circumstances is, watching and tweeting with friends is the best it can get. And bringing more fans into the fold helps us all.

More social media noise = more viewers = more seasons for all of us.

In honor of the end of the nightmare that is Droughtlander and in celebration of Starz running the first season of Outlander back-to-back this Saturday and Sunday, we are hosting TWO Twitter parties.

#OutlanderMarathon April 2, starting at 2 pm Eastern with Sassenach, ending at 10 pm Eastern after Both Sides Now

#OutlanderBinge April 3, starting at 2 pm Eastern with The Reckoning, ending at 10 pm Eastern after To Ransom a Man’s Soul

What’s a party without door prizes? For every 10 minutes we trend in the US over the weekend of April 2 and 3, Outlander Ambassadors will award a copy of the Outlander cover issue of TV Guide OR Entertainment Weekly to a randomly-chosen fan. (Thank you to Dede Burnett for offering an Entertainment Weekly to our effort!)

Same old trending rules apply: 2 words plus the hash-tag constitute a valid tweet for trending. A few tweets from more accounts count more than a bunch of tweets from a few accounts. Watch the feed at #OutlanderMarathon (#OutlanderBinge) and interact with people you don’t follow (yet). Bring them into the Outlander Fanmily. Have fun. Be funny. Be moved. Don’t be quiet. Screenshots are worth a thousand characters.

Please avoid using our hash-tags openly on Twitter beforehand. We can hide them in memes or TwitLongers to spread the news.

A Good Read: You may or may not have seen some bad behavior on social media by our fandom but it’s out there. Please use kind words, think before you post. Banter and humor is just fine, a little competition can be fun. We are a CLAN, a FANmily, treat each other and others with RESPECT!

I have to say I am getting very disappointed with the Outlander Fandom. For a group that is supposed to skew more ‘mature’ – we certainly don’t portray that way. The childish rants about ‘I want MORE’ are becoming very tiresome. With Season 2 almost upon us and the hoopla with all going on in New York around April 9th, I almost hate being on social media right now.

7825128275587743ef53c9d86369ff3c.jpgWhat is just as disappointing as the whining and complaining, is the silence from the majority to don’t act or think like spoiled children. I do a post like this and I’m a ‘bitch’ and need to stop telling people what to do. I can’t do anything about others perceptions – but what I am doing from MY perspective is pointing out things that concern or just flat annoy me. We, as fans, have a great show and I…

#OutlanderMarathon April 2

Not good at math? Dinna fash! Starz is running an Outlander marathon on April 2. Here’s an equation we can ALL get behind.

More social media noise = more viewers = more seasons for all of us.

Frankly, my favorite book (so far) is A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I’ll do everything in my power to see it onscreen on Starz. On April 2, let’s all binge-watch Outlander and tweet the heck out of the #OutlanderMarathon hash-tag. I’m hoping we’ll trend during The Wedding and To Ransom A Man’s Soul (at least.)

Same old trending rules apply: 2 words plus the hash-tag constitute a valid tweet for trending. A few tweets from more accounts count more than a bunch of tweets from a few accounts. Watch the feed at #OutlanderMarathon and interact with people you don’t follow (yet). Bring them into the Outlander Fanmily. Have fun. Be funny. Be moved. Don’t be quiet. Screenshots are worth a thousand characters.

Interact with William Shatner if possible. He had the honor of awarding Outlander the Most Bingeworthy Award at the Critics’ Choice Awards. He can be sort of fun.

British Artists Reigned Supreme

British artists continued to dominate all areas of entertainment in 2016, enjoying success in film, television, theatre and music. Their lovely faces graced magazine covers, movie posters, red carpets, talk shows and more. Their brilliant performances have been lauded by critics and audiences alike.  

This year saw another Oscar/BAFTA nominated performance by Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girlwhile countryman Idris Elba pulled double duty on both the big and small screen with multi-award winning turns in Beasts of No Nation and Luther.  British icon Dame Maggie Smith continued to entertain us as the Dowager Countess on Downton Abbey while still having time to film The Lady In The Van, for which she received…

THANK YOU STARZ

Wolfe Tales

Note to STARZ

First – I apologize. This is long again but it’s what I felt I needed to say.

I have made no secret of my thoughts about this show and the fandom surrounding it. Most of my blog posts have been observations about the Outlander fandom as it is the first and pretty much only fandom I’m really involved with. This fandom can and does do EPIC shit! The money that has been raised for extremely worthy charities, the hundreds of people that have gotten healthier thanks not only to Sam and his Peak Challenge in conjunction with Bear Strength – but the care and support of the fans for each other to strive to reach their fitness goals, support each other in times of trial, rejoice with each other in triumph. This is an amazing group of people and I feel blessed to be part of it – most of…
