Tweets On Tees

Because I am “Huge on Twitter,” I’m lucky to be wearing a pretty sweet Threadless t-shirt at the moment. And I have another one ready for tomorrow!
According to BrandWeek, I’m a pawn in a “viral marketing push.”
Here’s how I see it. I now have two new ready to wear t-shirts that people will probably ask me about when I wear them. And I certainly don’t need to say something obvious like: GO TO THREADLESS NOW AND BUY YOUR OWN! No, I don’t have to say that. I want to say it.
If you want to speak in 140 characters or less, submit your own t-shirt worthy saying. Threadless is offering $360 in cash and a $140 Threadless gift certificate to the winning Tweeps. The first to nominate a chosen tweet gets $100 and a $40 gift certificate.
