Title: #u2Request on April 14
Post by: busy5mom on February 10, 2015, 05:46:54 PM
I just got invited to this event on Facebook! I don't know much about twitter, but figured if you all are interested in joining, it could be fun.

"On 14th of April (and in the days to come until 14th of May), exactly one month before U2ieTour kicks off in Vancouver..let's ask U2 on Twitter to play during U2ieTour rare or never played songs adding #U2Request !!
You can ask all the songs you want, all the times you want, but important is: one song one tweet #U2Request."

I'll be adding to the "Acrobat" avalanche of course.  I really think this is the tour where it happens. 

Also, since 360 is the only tour I've seen live, I'll be requesting "Two Hearts Beat as One", "Original of the Species", "Zoo Station", "Who's Gonna Rider Your Wild Horses", "Crumbs From Your Table", "Seconds", and I'm sure by April 14th I'll think of a few more ahaha.  Not really expecting any of those to actually make the cut though.

I've always loved "A Sort of Homecoming" live. That would be my top old pick. More than anything though I just want them to play the album version of Every Breaking Wave, and not the acoustic one I fear they will play.

How about they do album version 1 night, acoustic version the next?  That way way I'll get my preferred version in as well.  Actually now that I've had that thought, it'd be cool if they did that with a few different songs...

Well, let me practice my tweets now...

Dirty Day #U2Request
Gone #U2Request
Miami #U2Request (it would work great paired with California)

I'm going to have to make a list so I can just cut and paste on Twitter.

LOL Busy5mom, I'm on Twitter but not FB. Just the opposite. Thanks for sharing this with us!

So what's the Twitter handle we can post our request under? Is that it...@U2Request?
(I don't know too much about hashtags though...tell me how they work? Don't laugh or flame me please)

I'll join the Acrobat que...but can we also request snippets of songs/lyrics to for Bono to drop in at the end of songs too? :)

Just occurred to me...remember how Ellen DeG's selfie during the Oscars briefly crashed Twitter last yr. I wonder if opening date May 14, Twitter may crash likewise if Bono really does have an account.  :D

Post on your account (as usual) and use the hashtag #u2request so that it can be found in a search and put it into trending mode.

Ok...that was my question. Are hashtags instant links or do they serve another purpose.   Thanks Jen.

Okay...coming up with my list now #acrobat will of course lead it :)

They work as both. You click on them and it goes into search mode looking for other tweets with the same hashtag referenced. Twitter also recognizes a hashtag being used a lot which puts it into trending mode. When it's trending, that is when it really gets noticed by search engines, Facebook, etc. and hopefully the band will get told about it so they can review it if they so choose.
