Ferndale, WA (PRWeb UK) October 13, 2009
As the Twitter phenomenon continues to gather momentum and social media is increasingly being run via mobile technology, the social advantages of the online community are now widely championed. FREEZE Connect's 'Twitterati' competition invites the public to uncover the UK's most influential Twitter personalities in the lead up to FREEZE. The most popular tweeters will be granted unprecedented access to the music and snowsports event to update the public on what happens from 30th October to 1st November at Battersea Power Station.
FREEZE Connect is the central hub for all activities around FSO4 FREEZE sponsored by LG. It has already built an astonishingly active online community around the event with music and snowsports fans receiving exclusive news and enjoying the event experience weeks before the gates open. Having shortlisted three Twitterati finalists to attend the event, the public's most popular tweeter will be heading to the mountains with a friend - the winner's prize is a five day trip for two to an LG FIS Snowboard World Cup event in January 2010.
The quest to find the UK's most influential Twitter personality starts with entrants uploading their profile to FREEZE Connect from today at http://www.londonfreeze.com/lg . From this point onwards the public will be given the chance to vote for their favourites through the site. Ultimately, the final three will be judged and selected with the help of an expert panel, which will include leading figures from the online community.
"FREEZE Connect is about creating communities that become the heartbeat of the action. Uncovering the UK's most influential tweeter complements these intentions perfectly and will give much back to the most active members of the community plus the tens of thousands of people who benefit from getting the latest news at FREEZE. Having our three Twitterati at the London FREEZE will be perfect to help us connect like-minded people and share Life's Good moments instantaneously via social networking handsets." comments Jeremy Newing, head of marketing, LG Mobile UK & Ireland.
FREEZE Connect activities will operate up to and throughout the Freesports on 4 FREEZE sponsored by LG, taking place from 30th October to 1st November 2009 against a backdrop of world-class music acts and international snowsports competitions.
FREEZE Connect has launched with a film introducing UK snowboarder Ben Kilner, and presenters Tim and Jools and what's in store for the online community over the coming weeks. Watch them explain Alternate Reality Games here:
