New action: Twitter blasts on Feb. 8 & 14  
ETA: Josh will answer questions tomorrow, Feb. 9. Source

Our new campaign action will be a little different this time because we'll be doing it online, specifically on Twitter. The reason we're doing this is, mainly: Josh Schwartz just joined Twitter several weeks ago (follow him at @JoshSchwartz76). Even more recently, he announced plans to answer fan questions about Gossip Girl on February 8. So we thought we'd bring The Headband Project to Twitter. How?

1. Sign up for an account. It should only take a couple of minutes, and it's a great way to keep up with your friends.

2. Follow Josh. Add us too: @projectheadband and the Gossip Girl folks (listed here).

3. On February 8 and February 14, send out tweets of how you think the show can improve. Multiple ones would be good over the course of the two days, at least 50 tweets per person. Tweets are only 140 characters long, so if you want to say something long, you probably will need to break it up into multiple messages. But the more concise and to the point, the better. (Time to break out those slogans too!)

4. Since we want to send the message to the writers and creator of the show, direct it straight to Josh by mentioning him in your tweet, like so:

@JoshSchwartz76 We want our fierce Blair Waldorf back! #gossipgirl #headbandproject

Since Josh will be taking questions on Feb. 8, we recommend you post tweets in question format:

@JoshSchwartz76 Will Blair ever get back on top as queen? #gossipgirl #headbandproject

So what do all those weird symbols mean? @JoshSchwartz76 means your message is being sent to Josh, an @reply (note: your friends/followers can see it if they follow him).

#gossipgirl and #headbandproject are called hashtags, which are a way of tagging tweets so they're easy to track. See also who's tweeting Josh here.

5. Grab our graphics and change your avatar & Twitter background. See what we did to our Twitter page.

Everything okay so far? So to summarize: sign up for Twitter, then send no less than 50 tweets to @JoshSchwartz76 on Feb. 8 and 14.

We hope you can join us on those dates, and tell all your friends to join in! If you have any questions, leave a comment or send us a message.

still at this????
'Will Blair ever get back on top as queen?'

lol what is this. She's almost twenty. This is just childish now. I love how the writers want her to move on and beyond this, and yet you juveiles want to go back 2 years.

i do love how you're not even trying to hide that it's all about Blair anymore, lol. that's the spirit. I encouraged this from the start. stop pretending like you care that much abt the other characters.

Im not so sure what you people are whining about. Blair wasn't that 'fierce' in s1 anyway. At least, unless you call pining after a guy that was obsessed with her best friend and throwing the random party and randomly being a bitch 'fierce'. But okay. You're wasting your time here though. I'll give you one thing, your graphics are pretty :D

I've got an idea - Kindly stop watching or stop bitching. It's not an imperative you continue to watch the show if you hate it.

Re: still at this????
seconding the sentiment about blair being past high school, but uh, wow. i'm not even sure what the purpose of this comm is but that doesn't change the fact that you're kind of a dick.

Doesn't change the fact that they're right.

I changed mine from the suggested format given the overly literal interpretation the show has been putting on queen.

Ignore the above commenter (all4nair). I'd suggest that people who come storming in repeatedly to comm's and tell other people to get a life are the true ones with the problems. Nice way to show respect for others.
