For those of you unfamiliar with Foursquare, we’ll simplify it. It’s a social networking tool that allows you to virtually “check in” to places and connect with others around you. Check into a place enough and you become the “mayor.”
If you’re the “mayor” of the Independence Visitor Center on April 30, Michael Nutter, the actual mayor, will send you a message on Twitter. It’s all very exciting, trust us.
Between now and April 30, the person who checks into the center the most and becomes the mayor at noon on the 30th will get a tweet from @Michael_Nutter. You only get to check in once a day.
We think Visit Philly should raise the stakes a bit. Perhaps the new mayor should get a key to the city?
