For every new Twitter follower I gain before December 31, I will donate $0.50 to the Boston Scholars Program.
I have 2,955 Twitter followers today, so if I have 4,000 followers on 12/31, I will donate $523... And so on. My Twitter followers increased by 1,000 in the last 30 days, so we could be in for a big donation if this actually starts to spread the word and accelerates the number of people following me. I'll track our progress here, and of course in my tweets.
So... Follow Mike Volpe on Twitter today!
Click here to view the spreadsheet with the raw data. Here is the fine print: I am not going to track follows and unfollows, the donation will be based on the difference between the number of followers I have today (2,955) and at 6pm EST on 12/31/08. Maximum donation of $2,500.
