Twitter Chat Mad Libs: a Fun, Interactive Social Game!!

May 15

Written by:

Recently, I volunteered to serve as the Guest Host for a fun and interactive game of Mad Libs on Twitter. Using the hashtag #ohchat (#ohchat is Office Hooky Chat), for one hour I posted a series of pre-written Mad Libs which chat participants replied to -- often with hilarious and witty answers! The hour flew by and proved that Twitter Mad Libs are an excellent way to interact with your followers, have a fun time, and interact with new people.

 

Play Along in Twitter Chat

The game was part of a 24 hour Tweet-a-Thon held at #ohchat to promote the horror, gothic romance Los Angeles based Web Series “They Live Among Us” for Hollywood writer/producer @princess_scribe. The irony of a fun and lighthearted Twitter game to promote a dark and gritty production added a layer of amusement for the community's enjoyment. Several participants thought it was one of the best hours of the Tweet-a-thon! Because it was such a success, I have been asked to host semi-regular games of Twitter Mad Libs at #ohchat. I hope you join in.

 

The Prep Work

To prepare for the #ohchat Mad Libs segment, I pre-wrote several phrasal template Tweets in advance. In addition, I accepted Twitter submissions from @OfficeHooky, the creator of #ohchat. This Mad Libs Hour did not have a specific theme. As the Host of Mad Libs, I prompted players with Tweets of random phrases and sentences where key words were replaced with blanks. Players then copy and pasted the Mad Lib, contributing words to fill in each blank. Then, they Tweeted submissions to everyone using the hashtag #ohchat. As you can imagine, the results were comical with players showing off their speech and grammar "skills"!

 

The Introduction

At the top of the Mad Libs segment on #ohchat, I provided a brief introduction of the game and the Tweet-a-thon. Also, I included several Tweets on game Instructions. Mad Libs are very well known to Americans and a popular childhood game, so it is almost reflexive that Tweeps would understand the simple "fill in the blanks" nature of the game. It is imperative Players use the #ohchat hashtag or else no one can see their submissions.

 

Examples

Below are two examples of the tweets that I sent out to the Twittersphere as Host of the Mad Libs segment at #ohchat. Where a blank Mad Lib was submitted for consideration, I credit that. So, for example, where @OfficeHooky sent a template to me in advance, that handle is reflected at the end of the Tweet, after the hashtag.

Your favorite Superhero is _____ their special power is ______ #ohchat

A video game involving _________ and _____________ in _______________ would be awesome. #ohchat @officehooky

 

Structure

The Mad Libs above are fill in the blank and don't identify the lexical category of the missing key word. Some Mad Libs may want to provide guidance and give categories such as, "noun", "verb", "place" or "body part". Either way, both provide a great way to interact so long as chat participants understand how to complete the sentence in a Tweet.

 

Results and Conclusion

I learned the #ohchat Twitter Chat Mad Libs are a fun, interactive, social game. My position as "Guest Host" was a success -- and I got to play along, too! Tweeps must be reminded to use the hash tag #ohchat when playing the game and responding to my prompts. Many people like to lurk during Twitter events. Keep acknowledging their presence and welcome them. Also, take time after each prompt! It takes time for a Player to read the Tweet prompt with the Mad Lib, cut and paste, edit, think about the response, write it, include the hashtag, and then post! Give a good amount of time and patience before posting the next Mad Lib -- there are many people lurking who would love to play along and meet new friends.

I am definitely up for Guest Hosting another round of Twitter Mad Libs at #ohchat.

It is strongly recommended that you carry a needle and thread as part of your survival kit. These materials can be helpful to repair torn clothing. You can also stitch up a wound to prevent heavy bleeding in case an accident occurs and you are not able to get medical attention without delay.
