It all started with a tweet yesterday morning:
What followed was an amazing bonding experience among us classic movie geeks on Twitter. Dozens, maybe even hundreds of tweets followed. The simple, open-ended idea gave everyone free reign to be creative in describing the things they loved about classic movies, from great moments and performers, to the way stars used to dress and behave.
The results were entertaining and addictive.
I usually check in with Twitter a few times a day, but yesterday I could hardly pull myself away. Even during times when I usually give the laptop a rest, I would check back in and get sucked into the vortex again, reading tweets and writing my own. I finally realized it was past my bedtime and I needed to wrap it up!
Check out some of these posts. I’m not even picking favorites here. I just grabbed a few that I retweeted:
There’s so much more than this to see, but you get the idea. Twenty-four hours later, people are still posting with this tag. It’s been like a party!
If you are not on Twitter, I highly recommend it as a place to meet classic movie fans. If you’re wondering who to follow, just take a look at #FavoriteThingsInClassicFilms and #FavouriteThingsInClassicFilms and you are sure to find many interesting people. I'm there too @classicmovieblg!
Thanks to Jill at Sittin’ on a Backyard Fence for an idea that was brilliant in its simplicity. You can follow her at @biscuitkitten.
