August 3rd Tweetathon
« on: July 29, 2014, 05:05:02 AM »


Tranquility. Serenity. Inner peace. None of these things describe the #SaveShenmue Tweetathon, the social media frenzy that lights up Twitter every 3rd of the month. But if Ryo Hazuki was standing over the forests and waterfalls of Guilin, contemplating this Sunday's event with his mind as clear as a polished mirror, he would be focused on the most efficient and reliable method of supporting this international uprising: the TeamYu.net AutoTweet.

By signing into TeamYu.net with your Twitter account and activating your AutoTweet, you will ensure your participation in every monthly Tweetathon for the duration of the campaign - or until you decide to switch it off. You're in control. But it's the easiest way to automatically tweet your personalized message along with every other supporter, every month without fail, with no repeat sign-ups required.

While you're stopping by, you might also check out the other unique features of TeamYu.net, such as the virtual kitten that relies on you, the entire Shenmue community, for food. Or how about the capsule toys that await collection in their machines? On which note, to mark the August 3rd #SaveShenmue Tweetathon, we're pleased to announce that capsule toy trading will open for the first time this weekend, allowing fans to swap any duplicate toys with each other. Got two Sonics but really want an Alex Kidd? Then get trading!

But, like Ryo, just don't forget what's most important: activate your AutoTweet today. As diverting as capsule toys may be, as a fanbase we have a job to do this Sunday. If we ever want Shenmue III to bring us our inner peace, then no matter how much virtual yen we have on the site, we can't afford to fiddle while Rome burns...

Please to see that when I was typing our hashtag on twitter, after typing in "#Save" twitter's predict function or whatever suggested #SaveShenmue just below of #SaveGaza and just above of #Savethearctic. #Sorryarctic.

There'll only ever be a North Pole and a South Pole but there's always hope for a third Shenmue. :)

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in Sunday's event - we had a blast and we hope you did too. Signs indicate that it wasn't the biggest ever #SaveShenmue Tweetathon, no new records were set, but a number of factors going into August 3rd meant that this was to be expected. Traditionally good summer weather has often impacted participation levels, and of course this was our first month transitioning from the familiar Thunderclap routine to our own AutoTweet system, which has yet to receive the same uptake.

However, the beauty of TeamYu.net's AutoTweet is that once you've enabled it, you don't have to reactivate it every month. So any new activations made between now and the next event on September 3rd are on top of those already accrued. Like a snowball it will keep on growing, effectively guaranteeing that each month's simultaneous blast of pre-loaded tweets will be bigger than the one before. That's something we could never rely on with Thunderclap.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have seen us mention on Twitter that next month's event will host another contest, hot on the heels of last month's generosity from Shenmue II voice actress Lisle Wilkerson. As soon as we get the nod, we'll be announcing the details first on TeamYu.net, so pay close attention for your opportunity to win prizes that any Shenmue fan will be keen to snap up.

Also in the coming weeks there'll be more additions to the rich feature list on the site, creating an ever more authentic homage to the Shenmue experience right in your web browser. Take note, these mystery upgrades will put a smile on your dial...

Again a huge thanks to all who kept the flag flying on Sunday, and for inspiring new fans to spread the word and be heard on the 3rd. If you haven't signed up for your AutoTweet yet then don't waste another sticky summer second; September will be here before you can say "Let's get sweaty!" http://TeamYu.net/autotweet
