RICHMOND, Va. – A new Twitter account was created as the launching point for a fun game of trivia to see just how well you know the locals.

The online “contest” was schemed up by @EllenM7 as a way to help you get to know your Twitter community, and local businesses.

It starts with Twitter account @RVATweeters.

Once the game launches, two clues will be posted daily from the @RVATweeters account — Monday thru Friday only.  The clues will be about a Twitter user, a total of 10 things that should make that person of the week recognizable.

If you recognize that person, AND you have a local Twitter account, then email your guess to Include your twitter handle, duh.

Repeat, EMAIL YOUR GUESS, DON’T TWEET IT. And don’t give away secrets either, people.

All correct entries will go into a drawing, which will be decided by a random drawing application. The person selected gets whatever the prize of the week is — just by playing along. No strings attached.

Local businesses donate the prizes. The business with the prize of the week will get a mention a day from the @RVATweeters account.

“It’s really just a little getting to know you exercise that will also help showcase and promote our local businesses,” Ellen writes. “All for fun, no one is making any money off of it.”
