Briefly for newcomers, during Twanta you send a cheap but fun gift to someone I nominate for you, and then you receive a similar pressie from someone else. I’ll explain more fully later. TWitter sANTA, see?
It’ll soon be time to kick off #TWANTA2013 (yes, that will be our hashtag). Last year’s was a TREEmendous success (see what I did there? No? Please yourselves), and mended my spirit which had been slightly dented by this kerfuffle two years ago. (yeah, click on that sentence to see the kerfuffle). I’d also like to remind you of this blog post from @davidtims, though, which will tell you all that’s good about Twanta.
TWANTA brings a shedload of fun and happiness to those who take part. However, please only ask to join in if you’re absolutely sure that you fancy buying a cheap gift to send to (possibly) a stranger, and to receive one in return. If you like the sound of that, follow the #TWANTA account @twanta2013 and let me know there that you want to join in. (You could also just let me know on my usual account, @wombat37, obviously). Look out for announcements on @twanta2013 in the next week or two to kick the whole thing off.
