Last week (or was it the week before? we don't know anymore they are all a giant never-ending blur of folly and failure) we made a push to have our twitter followers ascend over the 3,000 mark by getting some awesome local companies to give away free stuff on our behalf. As we've mentioned in the past, if we're not able to get the community free things, whether it be goods, products or alcohol, then what's the point of running this site in the first place?
Luckily, we were able to entice three of our favorite local companies to offer some of their goods in exchange for making two of our twitter followers very happy. We decided to look inside our own dark souls for the answer of what the prize should be and decided on the following devilish offering: Six Schlafly Beers, Six Strange Donuts and Six greetabl folding gift card boxes.*
We're pleased to announce that Justin Lebb @JustinLebb was our three-thousandth twitter follower and, through a top-secret government funded twitter randomizer, Alexandra Ogle @ABogle3 was our random follower who were bestowed with the honor of receiving the very special Schlafly+Strange+Greetabl gift pack.
You all know what donuts and beer look like, but here's a picture of the STL themed greetabl gift packet that the winners will receive:
On a serious note, we're very happy to have reached this goal and to continue offering our quasi-journalistic content on all things creativity, advertising, design, marketing, production, and random ass news pertaining to this wonderful city of ours. We thank you, the community, for supporting us and submitting your beautiful work for all the city and world to see. Here's to more years and followers as we continue to bring you the latest and greatest as much as is humanly possible for us to do while all having real lives, jobs and bosses to put up with.
Next milestone… FIVE THOUSAND FOLLOWERS.
And of course:

* We only recommended that they give you six of everything. So, Justin & Alexandra, if they give you more or less of said products, just walk away happy in the fact that you at least won something.
