Now I'm not a huge fan of Twitter (probably one of few my age who isn't), but I do think it's interesting how different companies and institutions are using the social networking device. So that's why I was struck by a press release I got from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra yesterday.
The BSO is holding its first contest through Twitter, where followers can read clues that will lead them to the hidden location of the last pair of Trey Anastasio tickets. In addition, the winner will also receive a dinner for two at a local restaurant before the concert. Pretty sweet deal, huh?
All you have to do is follow the clues on their site. Today's clue lets followers know they have to be at the secret location tonight at 5 p.m. (deciphering the location shouldn't be too hard, if you're a fan of Baltimore nightlife).
In case you're not familiar, Phish lead singer Trey Anastasio will join the BSO on Thursday, May 21, to debut his composition Time Turns Elastic, as well as several Phish classics. The program has been sold out, though the BSO just released 100 additional tickets on ticketmaster.com. So good luck Phish fans!
