Twitterhood Quiz started in an entirely impromptu fashion during the
chilly December of 2008 when several members of the tiny group of
Twitterhood neighbours which existed at the time became bored and
@linnetwoods decided to make use of a quiz book that happened to be
lying around on board..
At the start there were only
seven or eight people participating, there were no prizes and no points
awarded but, before many days had passed, the numbers participating
increased and @linnetwoods decided to create a structure that would give
everyone an even chance of joining in, as and when they felt like it and
to compete with each other.
Once there were points
being awarded, a way of displaying them was required and so was an
explanation for any newcomer interested in participating. Sponsors
started to emerge from amongst a growing Twitterhood and it became
imperative to show what was involved centrally, rather than trying to
repeat the information in a succession of tweets.
A couple of hours spent web
mangling produced the requisite pages and, over time a fair number of
people came and went - some answering just one question, others throwing
themselves wholeheartedly into the competition.
As the first series was
drawing to a close, @linnetwoods decided to create a small website
specifically designed for the quiz and include it in the new Twitterhood
website, a project that has been underway behind the scenes for quite
some time, being developed whenever time permitted.
