And you thought E3 was hard to get into? Well it is…but maybe you’ll have more luck getting into the world’s most exclusive website…or not. TheWorldsMostExclusiveWebsite.com is the latest viral marketing creation employing the use of the social networking site, Twitter.
There are 10 doors people can progress through, but only if they have enough Twitter followers and the number increases as they go on, starting at 5,000 followers for Door #2. Currently, Ryan Seacrest, has come the farthest by stopping at Door #7 which requires 5 million followers. Contenders to make it all the way through are Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga with over 10 million followers each.
And contrary to some other articles, the site is no longer “hackable”, so you’ll have to get in the old fashioned way…through the front door…that is if you can make it.
To even get through the door, you must have a verified Twitter account which has a little blue check to signify that you are “important”. Apparently, I don’t have one because this message popped up when I tried to sign in: “Verified Twitter accounts are reserved for the famous or otherwise socially significant.”
Ouch! That was a blow to my fragile ego. Now that I am emotionally vulnerable, what shall I do to make myself feel better? Thankfully they redirected me to a “slightly less discriminating destination” which happened to be… the Olive Garden homepage.
Because fattening up on endless soup, salad and bread sticks will boost my self esteem and increase my social status. Well played, Olive Garden.
