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.
