Frenchman--did JiNX-01's example help you? Or would you still like some help. Let me know, I'm happy to oblige.

Flash-mob fun: what if we got on Twitter and made as many posts possible mentioning Connor's name, with the idea of mentioning it enough times that it becomes a "trending topic" over in the right-hand margin? Say starting tomorrow?

OK. I'll be at school, but I can do it from the phone between classes and when I get home. I'll go let them know at st.com.

Re: T.H.U.G.life: It's Trip-alicious!

I went ahead and started now lol. I don't know how many or in how rapid of succession it'll take, but I figured it couldn't hurt. Mostly reminding everyone to vote.

Also, maybe if we retweet everyone else's tweets mentioning him?

Have just retweeted your two tweets Aquarius, but how do you add a live link. Am trying but it won't turn blue and not sure if it will when I submit it.

It was brought to my attention today that it may help Connor to trend at Twitter if you use the hash mark (#) before his name, so if you're participating in today's flash mob, write it #connortrinneer.

If you hover over the quote you want to retweet, the option to either reply or retweet appears in bottom right hand corner. When you click on retweet, you will then get a message asking if you want to retweet to your followers - just press yes. I don't think it will appear immediately as a new tweet but it will show under your empty tweet box at the top of the page as the latest tweet you have made (hope that makes sense!!)

As for the links, I wasn't sure but Aquarius confirmed you just need to copy the link into your tweet and it will change to blue once your submit it - I tried it and it worked.

Also, for links, I often convert them at TinyURL, since the length of tweets is so limited.
