My aim on twitter was to follow and talk to as many people as possible connected or talking about Quality Hunters 2 (I got a bit carried away following anything to do with FinnAir actually). 

But as my profile said...

@QualityHunter2 London but hoping for furtherdreaming of joining @QualityHunters 4 @Finnair &@HelsinkiAirport challenge. If you applied tweet me your URL I'd like to read & good luck www.PutneyDan.com


I wanted to read other peoples application to become a Quality Hunter for FinnAir and Helsinki Airport.

I read, liked and try to make a personal remark to every one who applied and mentioned or messaged me.

At one point I had tweeted 3 times more than the official account, though they as a team slowly caught up and went past me. Probably linked to me losing some interest and FinnAir gaining 7 more awesome Quality Hunters.

I was closing on their Klout score until the very end (QualityHunters2 Klout is probably pretty lame now
 
 
I knew I really wanted to get the @FinnAir @QualityHunters Job www.QualityHunters2.com

But I knew I couldn't just SPAM all my friends, followers, family & new people interested in travel.

I found the official twitter account https://twitter.com/#!/qualityhunters

Then searched @QualityHunter thinking I was being clever, as I would discover I came quite late to the race.

My first mistake was assuming 00.00 on 6th October 2011 was midnight on the 6th. (Turns out it was Midnight on the 5th).

I had been hustling hard, all but begging for votes. I had a lot more organised for the last day... that never came. I was preparing the following pictures & was going encourage friends to share & also change their profile picture for the last 24 hours, then to tweet or comment on @FinnAirs facebook page.

It started with a simple email from my friend @AndrewsJScott sending me http://qualityhunters2.com/ and telling me to go for it.... 

I spent an age & many edits to come up with my application here It shows about 50% of what I wrote.

I saw the competition finished at 00.00 on 06/10/11

So I set about rallying the troops...
