The Twitter #TMITrivia Night - Q & A's Included!

Last night, the first ever TMI Twitter Trivia Night took place and it is the morning after and I'm still buzzing! We weren't sure if this kind of thing can be done on twitter but judging how last night went, it can be done and @MissEmmG and I will definitely do more of them :)
This was the flyer we used to promote the event...


We had 30 questions which was broken up to 3 rounds with 10 questions each. The questions were a mix of easy to hard (some might say very hard) and I think we did a good job of keeping people on their toes! (or fingers on the keyboard in this case).

I can't tell you how many people participated exactly buy what I can tell you was that they were from different parts of the world and really impressed me with their knowledge of The Mortal Instruments book series (Cassandra Clare herself would be proud!). I found it hard at times to keep up because the #TMITrivia feed was like a running waterfall of text and I had to pluck out correct answers in the sea of tweets for each questions. I was exhausted by the end of it! 

We did have a winner who tweeted the correct answer first more often then not and scored the most 5 points. Well done and Congratulations to @clockworkroyalT who was crowned TMI Guru of the Twitterverse!

There is so many people to thank to make this all happen (you know who you are). Thanks to those who tweeted and retweeted about it and we can't forget to thank Cassandra Clare for creating the story/series we love so much :)

If you played along last night, we'd like to hear your thoughts on the event. What can we do better next time? Was it too long? Were the questions too easy or hard? We'd love your feedback so we can do a better job next time!
