Like every crazy trend on twitter, Colorwars2008 started out as an inside joke. An inside joke I was not privy too. Is is because I’m Canadian?
I wake up around *tea time and find a crazy **color thing happening on twitter. All the cool kids had added a “Team Color” to their twitter avatars. Naturally, I am confused and like many Non-Silicon Valley outsiders, I just didn’t quite get the joke. After searching googly & twitter, I was even further down the rabbit hole with who started it (Team Very Green’s Gary Vaynerchuk or Team Blue’s @zefrank) and why and just simply “Wha- happened?”
I’m not sure anyone really has a clue why they are doing it and for what greater purpose.
Choosing a Colour:
I’m partial to the Gold Team’s current avatar graphic and the fact that a number of Gold followers are Pro Viking horns (finally, I fit in!). Team Blue doesn’t even have an avatar. Lame. Team #FF1CAE has got iJustine’s l0v3, but Veronica is supporting Team Very Green.
Joining a twitter color team:
Just follow your team of preference on twitter and hizzah you are part of 2008 Colorwars. There are maaaaany teams, but here is a list of the main ones.
Twitter ColorWars begins tomorrow! What team are you? Convince me to join your team, I dare you!!
*Don’t judge me for my nocturnal habit, I was designing a sweet web site into the wee hours…. Ok fine, I was procrastinating the designing of a sweet web site whilst watching movies… sue me.
**Colour > Color. No one respects the Queen’s English anymore.
