A lot of people have already blogged about last week’s overwhelmingly successful #SentiSabado movement on Twitter. This is just my simple retrospective on what has transpired.
First, I want to thank each and every Pinoy tweep who participated in last week’s momentous event. At its peak, #SentiSabado reached No.4 on Twitter’s top trending topics. What can I say…? I am at a loss for words.
I’ve been receiving news from other tweeps that even their friends who don’t tweet already know about SentiSabado.
I remember how, back in September 4, Tonyo Cruz (@tonyocruz) started this simple series of nostalgic tweets and added the hashtag, “#sentisabado” on each one of them. I reciprocated with some of my own… well… not some… more like a truckload of 80s recollections:
Tetorns… USED jeans… Drakkar… Choo-Choo Junction restaurant… playing tumbang preso and climbing the aratilis tree during my childhood… biking at PICC… recalling my 6-digit phone number…
T’was only a handful of us back then (together with the #bumsquad) going at it with passion and gusto!
Before we knew it, more and more tweeps started joining in.
The first SentiSabado (Sept. 4) actually peaked towards the end of Saturday… and eventually spilled over to the early morning of Sunday! It was so fun that people were still contributing #sentisabado tweets till Monday!
Because of this, we pretty much figured that if #SentiSabado could be started way earlier the following week (last Saturday), it would gain more momentum and more tweeps could join in on the fun.
So, we eventually announced that the next #SentiSabado would start at 12:00AM. Saturday came… and the rest, as you know, is history!
Last Saturday, the #SentiSabado stream column on my Tweetdeck app was scrolling uncontrollably like a manic clicker, unable to keep up with the tweets coming in. It was that massive!
For those who didn’t have the chance to join us last week but wanted to… don’t fret. Our next SentiSabado will be in 2 days (a day and a half to be exact). Our next theme will be announced very very soon, so stay tuned and dedicate a #SentiSabado stream on your Twitter app.
By the way… in case you didn’t know, #SentiSabado has an official Facebook page already! So, come on over and join us by visiting: http://www.facebook.com/sentisabado
And lest you forget… It’s #SentiSabado again this September 11, 2010. The fun (and frenzy) starts at exactly 12:00 AM!
So, warm up those fingers… rack your brain… recall those cool, nostalgic memories… and get your tweet on!
Yes. The title of this entry pretty much says everything!
It’s the 1st Music Expo & 23rd Awit Awards Night on Sept 28-30, 2010 at the Centerstage of the Mall of Asia.
Unlike previous years, this Awit Awards Night will be preceded by 2 days of talks/seminars… hence the 1st Music Expo. If you’re a songwriter, musician, record producer, or just a plain and simple music lover, head over to the Mall of Asia and listen to notable personalities and guest speakers who will share valuable thoughts and ideas covering vast topics and aspects of our music industry.
After that, cap it all off with a celebration of Philippine music as we recognize this year’s musical achievements via the 23rd Awit Awards.
I have been part of Awit Awards’ “Judging Committee” for the past 10 years… and listening to this year’s batch of entries, I have to say that our industry is just getting better and better technically and artistically!
So, come and celebrate with us!
This is truly an event you won’t ever want to miss!
See you there!
Keep your eyes peeled and get ready!
SentiSabado will be back on Twitter this Saturday and you can be sure there will be more tweeps participating in it! Also, this week’s SentiSabado will be having a theme! It has yet to be announced so make sure you watch out for it! Dedicate a search stream on your fave Twitter app just for #SentiSabado so you won’t be left out.
If you belong to the Generation Y group (born around the 1970s to early 1980s), don’t miss this event. Tweet your friends to join in on the fun!
With more people pitching in this coming weekend, let’s see how hot this topic will be on Twitter’s trending list.
See you all this Saturday, tweeps! :)
