    I'm often planning/spontaneously starting promotional campaigns on Twitter for Linkin Park (e.g. Twitter flashmob for Power the World, Burn it Down Day, etc.). I know that it's not for everybody, but for those who are active on Twitter and like to participate in those campaigns, I will just post here everytime I'm doing one.

    Today we are trying to get #LinkinParkThursday trending, because of all the great stuff we are getting today, so add the hashtag to your tweets! My Twitter is @adiek84, by the way.

    Remember how we got #ReplaceLinkinParkSongsWithKetchup trending worldwide? That was fun.

    During the last days, many fans have actively helped organizing listening parties all over the world in order to celebrate the release of Linkin Park’s new album “LIVING THINGS” and even though the result was really great, with many parties happening, there are still many fans who cannot participate due to different reasons.

    This is why I am now inviting all fans with a Twitter account, no matter which country, to celebrate together via Twitter.

    - The official Twitter Listening Party is taking place on June 26, at 1pm PST ( => 9pm London, 10pm Berlin, 5am Tokyo, 6am Sydney, 5pm Rio de Janeiro).

    - Start listening to the album right at 1pm PST and live tweet your thoughts etc. about the songs.
    Don’t forget to use the hashtag #LIVINGTHINGSReleaseDayChallenge

    - Spread the word! You can post the flyer on my blog (URL in signature) to your Facebook profiles, LPU blogs, on Twitter etc.

    By the way, the hashtag was chosen by Mike himself :rastamike:

    Edit: Since some people asked me about it, the direct link to my blog post is https://adiek84.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/linkin-park-living-things-release-day-challenge-twitter-listening-party/. Some forums have strict rules with direct links, so if I broke any rules just contact me and I'll remove it again.

    You can count me in! I don't have any real-world friends that are really into LP (my Mum likes the softer stuff but hasn't quite taken to the metal/rap side of things yet) so I think this is a great idea.

    Not sure if this is a valid problem, but you included exclamation marks in the hashtag. If Twitter sees ones w/ the marks and ones w/o as two different things, then we might have a split on that day. I'm not sure if it will disregard the exclamation marks or not, but to be safe could you edit those ("!!!!") out so people visiting this page will tweet the correct hashtag ;)? #LivingThingsReleaseDayChallenge

    Can't join the twitter party. 6am on a school day. WHY JUST 3 DAYS BEFORE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS?!

    EDIT: If I go to bed early enough, and set my alarm, I could join the twitter party. After I'm finished listening, I'll just go back to sleep.

    Hey @Adiek84, it's a GREAT idea. Congratulations. And, I'm not sure if the exclamation marks in the Hashtag were intentional, but all of us thought that is better without it, so... Just a sugestion. Because, if people start putting different amounts of exclamation points, the hashtag will never come to the trending topics.
