Twitter Bingo

There was a farmer who had a dog,
And Bingo was his name-o.
And Bingo was his name-o.
When joining in with the group to sing and clap along, I never bothered to think what, if anything, the song meant. Did you?

You were probably were too busy trying to keep with the rhythm and clap along at the right time just like I was!

You were more intent on listening for the numbers as the caller would read out loud "B5, N37, G48..." when playing the game of Bingo.

You wanted to complete the row of five numbers, or four if you could use the free space!

You can play bingo today with Twitter. Expanding upon Christopher S Penn's use of #the5
  • Pick five items to share via Twitter and tag with #the5
  • Set up a search for the #the5
  • See if one you have shared gets shared by someone else
  • If you get a match, connect with the person doing the sharing. You have at least one thing in common, there may very well be more
  • If you get five matches, the day could very well be a lucky day
With two sessions of 10-15 minutes each, you get a good start on your life long learning. This Twitter Bingo will let you learn, share, search, learn some more, network, and keep the life long learning cycle going mixed a dose of some fun.

How far will this take you?
That is entirely in your hands!

Go have some fun learning!

Note: retweets of #the5 count as a match
