You voted and the winner is…The Little Mermaid!
This means that on January 18th at 9pm Eastern, 6pm Pacific, everyone joining in will simultaneously start watching The Little Mermaid (Tablets, Streaming, or Blu-Ray players…whatever you want to use to watch the film). Have something funny to comment on, an opinion (positive or negative), or just a gushy I-love-this-part sentence you want to share? Tweet using the hashtag #LittleMermaidLive. This is essential! If you don’t use the hashtag, we won’t be able to see what you are tweeting!
Now if you want to do this by yourself, just use the hashtag and have a great time, but if you want to see everyone’s tweets, click the hashtag after tweeting and the entire list of people using the hashtag will appear. From there, you can respond, favorite, retweet, or follow other Disneyphiles in their #LittleMermaidLive experiences. You can also use a tool like TweetChat to follow the discussion. I think this will be a great experience for all to connect with other Disney fans and have a great time watching a classic Disney film.
Also remember, throughout the night I will be looking for my favorite tweet. The winner will be announced the following day here on the blog. That person will be named “TDB Master Tweeter” for the month and will get to choose the February nominees for our Live Tweet session. Want to pick only 2000′s Disney Films? Want to choose two 1990′s films-that-should-get-more-credit? Want to choose Atlantis and The Black Cauldron? It is up to you as TDB Master Tweeter!
Let’s recap: 9pm Eastern on Jan. 18th we will start watching The Little Mermaid, tweet using the hashtag #LittleMermaidLive, one tweeter will be chosen as TDB Master Tweeter for the month, anything else? (If you got the reference, post in the comments below!). Just letting you know, we are expecting some fun Disney fans and groups to be joining us (including a Downtown Disney Hotel!) so I cannot wait to see our turn out. You can follow me @Marshal_Knight for updates the day of or you can send me a tweet now with your excitement for Jan. 18th! And, of course, follow @TheDisneyBlog on twitter too.
Let me know in the comments if you will be joining us! I, truthfully, can’t contain my excitement. This is going to be a blast! Until January 18th… Have a Magical Day!
