Cash for followers!

If this was Parliament, Run Geordie Run would be in big trouble. Thankfully, it's for charity and the "Cash For Followers" scheme on Twitter which was originally solely backed by Digital Spark Ltd now has some new parties at the table.

Regular readers and Twitter followers of @rungeordierun will remember that Digital Spark Ltd offered to donate £100 to the two charities if I could reach 1000 followers before the end of June. That was successful and was immediately followed with a challenge of reaching 2000 followers before the end of July for a £200 donation. 

As I said before, there are some new parties offering to donate cash to the two charities. The "Cash For Followers Coalition"are Digital Spark Ltd (£300), Fix My Alloys (£100) and Will Banks (aka @CancerMatters) (£100).

So the charity cash incentive for reaching 3000 followers before the end of August is a whopping £500. At the time of writing, @rungeordierun has 2771 followers on Twitter. Another 229 followers in the next 15 days will release that £500 donation.  

Thanks to Digital Spark Ltd, Fix My Alloys and Will Banks for putting up the cash for this challenge.
