Shark Week Gold

Holy moly, Shark Week puts a lot of social media attention on sharks.  Last night I couldn't sleep due to my jetlag, so I scheduled a Shark Week tweet on Shark Defenders every hour using Hootsuite.  I tagged each post with #SharkWeek.  Then I tweeted during the 4 PM showing of Shark Fight and the 8 PM showing of Air Jaws: Fins of Fury.  Shark of Darkness: Submarine Returns was so terrible I stopped watching after about 10 minutes.  I tweeted some snarky things about the show, and that's when things started to take off.

Maybe it was because David Shiffman was on an airplane and there was a giant gaping hole in the Shark tweeterverse, but my Twitter feed exploded.
If this keeps up, Shark Defenders will surpass 10,000 followers by the end of the week, thus making me 0.02% as popular as Justin Bieber.
