WPBT Twitter Hashtags

by Luckbox

The tweets will be a-flyin' during the WPBT. There is no doubt at that. We all know that Twitter killed the blogging star, so why wait until after the WPBT to read about trip reports when you can get them 140 characters at a time? With that in mind, here are some handy hashtags you should be using:

#wpbt: This is the catchall for wpbt-related tweets. This one is currently in use and should be tracked for any updates leading up to the big event. I would always include this hashtag even if you include another one. Many people will have an ongoing search set up for #wpbt all weekend long.

#geishabar: Thursday night at about 9pm will mark one of the first large drunken gatherings. The problem? Your cell phone likely won't work. So good luck tweeting from there!

#wpbtgolf: Joe Speaker has graciously agreed to set this up again and it looks like they've got a couple of foursomes already lined up. You'll want to get in touch sooner rather than later if you want to be a last minute add.

#table16: This hashtag makes a triumphant return from last year. Table 16 in the MGM poker room is the legendary location of some of the dumbest, drunkest poker in WPBT history. thisisnotapril has reserved this table for us yet again. I can't imagine it will get as crazy this year, but you never know.

#mgmmixed: thisisnotapril has plans to reserve a separate MGM poker room table for slightly less crazy, but likely just as drunken, mixed games.

#steelpanther: Yeah, can't wait to read these tweets. Auto-correct will be in full effect. I'll be missing this since I've done it two years in a row, but if you haven't gone, do so... and try to get the attention of the band during the show, they'll have really nice things to say about you!

#wpbtclassic: This is the hashtag for our big tournament. You may have heard about some awesome add-ons, so go there to read about them and sign up! However, there is to be NO discussion at the tourney location about any extra money involved. We are playing for "pride." Got it? Good.

#wpbtfootball: Sunday is all about football. I've heard the one-and-only AlCantHang is working on accommodations and that we may be back at Lagasse's this year. I'm sure there will be more info to come on this. One way or another, we'll all be together betting on who the Vikings will lose to.

#otisfalls: It's pretty self-explanatory and will be in effect all weekend long. If Otis, or anyone else, falls, let people know about it.

#wheelchair: This one is pretty much reserved for Drizz.

#paigow: Yep, plenty of drunk Pai Gow poker to be played. Play it loud. Play it proud. And don't leave without steak and eggs.

#wpbt420: I'm just throwing this one out there. Never partook myself, and don't plan on it, but Pauly, Change100 and others may use this hashtag.

#timmyeatstwobreakfasts: Anyone who eats a very large meal, particularly if they do, in fact, eat two breakfasts, should use this hashtag.

What am I missing? Feel free to add your own hashtag ideas in the comments.

UPDATE:
#procedure: As BadBlood rightly points out, this is an important hashtag for those of you looking to get rolled serviced entertained by strippers. But if you're tweeting during a lap dance, you're doing it wrong.
