If you want to get a whole lot of retweets, here’s a quick strategy: Just offer to do something HUMILIATING. A 20-year-old woman named Kelsey Hall who’s a student at the University of Alabama tweeted a photo of herself in an ugly Christmas tree costume on Saturday. And she said if she got 1,000 retweets, she’d wear it to all of her classes for the rest of the semester.
Well, it went viral. And as the retweets started pouring in, she tweeted, “Guys I really don’t want to do this”, but it was too late.
She got over 18,000 RETWEETS, so now, she’s fulfilling the bet and she’s wearing the Christmas tree around campus.
(Here’s the original photo of her in the costume.)
