    Posts were since deleted -- either T did it himself or he was reported. I suspect the latter to be true, because the rest of the Stargate_Now team was unaware of it until it was pointed out to them, which I thought was weird since the person who posted the R-rated posts tagged the account.

    I'll send you the name of the account which screencapped the posts.

    It's exactly how I think. Mutually assured destruction type thinking... If they get more stargate, fine. If not, also fine.
    But Stargate Command has taught me a valuable lesson, that I don't want to be used anymore as a convenient extra. They didn't want to stand up for the rest of us, than I have nothing to give in return.

    They are the ones who have to keep it alive. We count towards nothing, except when they need us they want us. No thanks...

    If it's any indication, the hashtag was simply #WeWantStargate.

    And David Hewlett was most awesome last night (or morning for him probably) when he made a specific mention that the timing was rather awkward for people internationally.

    So what is the outcome? Has Stargate become No1 on Twitter?

    It is nice to see the posts of so many Stargate actors and staff.

    I don't know if it was number 1 but it did trend according to an article posted by Mallozzi.

    Edit
    It never made it to number 1 in the USA --> See here.

    Other countries:
    Canada -- 2
    United Kingdom -- 3
    Spain -- no trending
    France -- 1
    The Netherlands -- no trending
    Belgium -- no trending
    Australia -- 1

    Worldwide -- 2

    I didn't participate but a friend of mine, who isn't on twitter, said it was #1 for about an hour.

    Depening on where your friend was located, I can tell you that from the list of countries available on Tweeples, only France and Australia managed to accomplish that.

    The USA stranded on number 2.

    Given that Joe is essentially a retired writer of a sci-fi show 20 years old, I'd say hitting ANYTHING trending was worth it.

    We want more stargate, but the question is, what does MGM want.

    I have read a few comments here and there. It is nice to see how many people love this franchise.

    Let's see if anything happens on MGM side, but I am still sceptical. I still believe it should be a monthly or quaterly feature if we want to push them.

    You know what would be better than a 4th series? If they would announce a 5th as well.

    It was fun while it was running, but then the next day, the clown running the @StargateNow account felt the need to hop on Twitter and snidely berate people who tweeted 'wrong.' Really turned something fun into a sour taste in the mouth.

    The tweets have since been deleted, but they were enough. I'd love new Stargate on TV, but as long as that a-hole is leading the charge to try to publicize that desire, I will not be participating in any further initiatives.

    What has happened? Has somebody mentioned the "extension" word again?

    It was nice to see such concept art from JM, what I haven't seen before. They should release them in a book version.

    Not sure what you meant by that, and since the offending tweets have been deleted, I can't paste direct quotes, but it was a series of comments to the effect of

    "despite asking you to only do x, people didn't listen"
    "x number of people did y, we know who you are"
    "we told you not to do this, but you didn't listen so we got [marginally less] traction than last time"
    "some of you don't have your location turned on, so you screwed up the metrics"

    After getting really called out hard in the replies, they deleted the offending tweets and instead commented "Decided to delete all the posts that are causing people to get upset. Me trying to explain why it is important is not going over well, so I'm going to stop" -- again, pointing fingers at others like they're the problem in this equation. (Never mind that the original condescending tweets didn't bother to 'explain' anything, they were just accusatory, and 'explanations' were only offered defensively in replies calling this account out).


    I have no idea who's running the account, but they really showed their true colours after the "tweet storm," and it's not someone I'm interested in associating with ever again.

    I was worried they have started a flame about the SG:C app again. Thanks for the explanation. I have never been active on Twitter, so I am sorry if I have sounded a bit noob and unexperienced.

    Maybe MGM should have bee tagged as well. It is nice they have added BW and JM, but thy are not in deciding position as only MGM can make such move.

    And for those who can read French - which, for the record, is not me - there is also this article. Sure, I can't read it. But I'll take what I can get.

    I agree, it was very uncalled for and to be quite honest, very unprofessional. When I was reading them I questioned for a minute if this person was legitimate or not. Yes, I’m sure it was frustrating, but people showed up regardless, you should be praising that, not throwing a hissy fit over it.
