How can I acquire many Twitter followers quickly? Answered

Well, I am just an average guy that somehow got connected with the Mountain Dew brand team.  Out of many people, they asked me to lead the "Name The New Dew" Twitter race for the name "Flash."  Basically, the name that collects the most followers wins.  My job is to get people excited and following 493FLASH on twitter (twitter.com/493Flash)

I am tanking.  Big time.  My competitors are wasting me.  Any ideas on how to collect followers?

If you have nothing to say, people won't follow you. You need to post something interesting enough, frequently enough, to create buzz and word-of-mouth recommendations.

And in this case, you need to convince folks that the name you've proposed is sufficiently better than all the other alternatives. Maybe you're just backing the wrong horse.

Good luck, I guess. Personally, this strikes me as one of the most inane attempts to create viral marketing that I've seen in a long time.

Yeah... I know.  Thing is, I love DEW and I think it is interesting to get a glimpse at the inside of one of these giant marketing schemes.

After everything is said and done, I am going to write a nice expose "Social Network Marketing Unveiled" about the way these things really work.  For now, I just need to get more followers on this Twitter account.

Thanks you guys!

Pluck them by the stem, close to the ground.

If the stems are woody, use secateurs and snip at an angle to prevent water building up on the surface and causing rot.

What if the frost has already come? Will this affect the method?

Link to nude photos.  That seems to draw lots of viewers.
