Twitter for Consumers and News Junkies

So you follow @TheEllenShow, @peoplemag, and @britneyspears. That’s great!

Twitter is the Holy Grail of information: […]

Disney On Ice presents Celebrations! Lakeland Local presents Free Tickets!

Friday night, Disney on Ice will make its world debut of a new show, Celebrations! at the Lakeland Center. If you want to see the show, you’ll have to act fast as there are a mere four shows on Friday and Saturday.

The performers are rehearsing at the Lakeland Center tonight and Lakeland Local’s Darby Critendon will be there to video one of her Lakeland Minutes. Look for it Friday morning.

We have a little celebration of our own. We’re nearing the end of our third year presenting Lakeland local news and information. To help celebrate we’re giving away two sets of Family Four Packs (4 show tickets) to the Friday night Celebrations! show.

How can you nab your chance at one of the Family Four packs? Go to Twitter and tweet:

I’m a Lakeland Local http://bit.ly/LkldLocal

We’ll put all the names in a hat and at Noon Friday direct message the two winners. (We’ll need your real name at that point to leave the tickets at the Lakeland Center will call.)

Tweet even if you can’t go. You can play Santa Claus and give the tickets to friends.

(PS: It’s OK if you don’t live in Lakeland.)

Note from the lawyers: cash value of the tickets is $0. In other words, you can only claim the tickets, not what they’re worth.
