A while back anyone using the popular microblogging tool Twitter may have noticed that their contact’s avatars sported some peas. This was in support of the Susan Reynolds and the Frozen Pea Fund, and was actually for a good cause. Now a new trend has surfaced in recent days that has Twitter users pitted against each other in mini gangs, showing their colours.
What exactly is the war over or about? Thatâ€™s yet to be determined. The very green team seems to be in the lead with a pretty extensive cast list thus far. I was tempted to join them too.. but I figured if we all joined their team, then there really wouldnâ€™t be any competition! [iJustine]
iJustine also created team #FF1CAE, and her helpful template for anyone else wishing to join team pink was quickly overthrown by someone from team “Dodger Blue”.
So far this morning I’ve seen the rise of team “Red and White”, and Aqua Team, and also SheGeeks have an entire breakdown of each team’s manpower: red, green, yellow, blue, orange, pink, gold, off-white, and plaid.
Meanwhile over at Tech Moz, the have a detailed graph showing the support for each colour team to date.
It seems all you need to do to join a team is change your avatar to include your chosen colour in the background or under your image, across the bottom. The sentiment around the web so far seems to be that Tweeps or Twitterers (those on Twitter) have a lot of time on their hands, are bored, and must have nothing better to do. Quick! Time for a Steve Jobs keynote… or another Zuckerberg interview.
