Tonight's HASHTAG is #GreendaleXmas!

(cross-posted from reddit)

It appears that "#GreendaleXmas" has won out as this week's hash tag! People are already using it on twitter, so there's that.

HERE is where we will be able to monitor tonight's hashtag effort!

HERE is the Twitter Trendsmap for #GreendaleXmas. You will be able to see the regions that the hash tag trends if(when!) we succeed.

Here also are trendsmaps for #SaveCommunity and #Sixseasonsandamovie. However, it is quite unlikely that these will be able to trend in a large way, as Twitter's algorithm is built to suppress hashtags which have been tweeted for a long time (in order to promote new content). So, while you can include the usual tags, make sure you don't forget #GreendaleXmas!

In addition, I am providing a link directly to the Twitter Sign-up page. This is to encourage those of you without Twitter to join for the sake of tonight! Last week we got #AbedisBatman trending, and we really MUST do even better tonight.

One final thing: Retweets DO NOT HELP to make hashtags trend. You must post NEW tweets containing the hashtag in order to effect trends. 'SPAM' IS THE OPERATIVE WORD. Commercial breaks should be an absolute bombardment.

We need every human being's help! Tonight, we are bringing new meaning to the title "Community".

Let's hit it guys.

Piggybacking top comment.

Truly wonderful job tonight, guys. I'm compiling my screenshots of the results, but safe to say-- we trended the fuck out of Community just now.

AWESOME fandom.

People's twitter account handles?

Is it kosher to ask people to think about posting their handles in the comments section here so we can respond to each other? I'm not saying retweet, I'm talking about actually having conversations about the ep that include the hashtag spam.

For the record, I am sukiisacat. I basically lurk ONLY except for asking someone an occasional question, but I'm going to spam tonight.

Re: People's twitter account handles?
I'm @htbthomas if you want to tweet with me. But don't forget that you can click the hashtag itself after posting any of your tweets and then reply to anyone else's comment you see there! :)

If anyone wants to add me, I'm lightening__bug (that's 2 underscores.) I'll probably only be tweeting during the commercials.

Re: People's twitter account handles?
We should try and trend sometime during the hiatus too, just to keep the buzz going.

I wanna help out but I'm so absolutely ignorant of/completely baffled by twitter! If retweeting doesn't make a difference in trending, what's the point of people ever doing it at all? :( and what's the difference between retweeting and replying and how do replys even work and all the symbols and the words and and and....oh my god, I sound/feel like my mother O.O ;P

well, no matter what I'll definitely try to help out as much as I can vaguely understand how and twit my little heart out!

Retweeting means someone else's tweet shows up on your timeline, which means whoever is following you will see it. So even though it doesn't help with trending, people do it so that the tweet can potential be seen by more people.

Replying means responding to someone's tweet.

As far as the symbols go, @ is what you put before someone's twitter handle when you tweet them. So if you wanted to tweet Dan Harmon, you would type @danharmon and then whatever message you wanted to write to him, and he would get it in his @replies. @replies is the page on your twitter where you can see all the tweets that mention you.

The other symbol used on twitter is #. If you see something with # directly in front of it, you can click on it and see who else is tweeting about it.

Finally, trending topics are the topics that are being tweeted about frequently.

Hope that helps.

#GreendaleXmas, Troy and Abed, AND Donald Glover are all trending worldwide right now. ♥

lol I meant United States, as Twitter apparently changed my settings >_____>

I had mine set to "Worldwide" and those three were still trending!
