Hello crunchers!

This month I challenged the members of the Atlantic team to make May "BOINC Volunteer Computing Awareness Month". This idea has intrigued some fellow crunchers on the BOINC LinkedIn group so let's expand the campaign and make it viral!

My suggestion for a Twitter campaign is this:

Let's make May: #BOINC volunteer computing awareness month. #BOINCMonth #Crunchers RT and make this viral! @NASA_Langley @Dropbox @sciam


As you can see, I've crafted a Tweet with some #hashtags including #BOINCMonth then I add a couple of @'s to target companies that are involved in science, computing and the news media. When you make your own Tweet, target different Twitter accounts and who knows how far this can go?!

If you send a Tweet, copy/paste it to this thread, or the one on LinkedIn so we can track the campaign.

#BOINCMonth !!! Woot!

Hello, why not use #NASA tag in your message?
That is very active and someone following #Nasa might be interested
By the way I've already retweeted your tweet.

Thanks for the RT. I'll probably send out another tweet over the weekend, and try some other #hashtags.

Just a quick summary, the campaign got 19 re-tweets! Not too bad. I've set a reminder for next year in Google Calendar so I'll start building support for the campaign a little earlier so mark your calendars as well!

Thanks to the folks who showed their support with RT's!
