  Retweet Fucker by Greg Leuch <http://www.gleuch.com>
  Released as a Free Art & Technoloy Lab (F.A.T. Lab) project <http://www.fffff.at>
  Copyfree 2009. http://www.retweetgame.com

  Source Code: http://github.com/gleuch/retweet-fucker

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  Retweet Fucker (a.k.a Retweet Game) reaches out to Twitter users to play a retweet lottery game. After a user adds
  the application, they are placed into a lottery system to win a chance to have one of their everyday tweets 
  retweeted out by others in the lottery. This game focuses on provoking users' common conversations into the upper
  bounds of Twitter famousness while requiring users to gamble time, their tweets, and their followers for a chance
  to win a retweet round.
  
  This project is an exercise in exploring Twitter popularity (internet famo) through a simple and forgettable
  game interface and the (new) retweet features available within the Twitter API. Retweet Fucker is written in 
  Sinatra (Ruby) using DataMapper and Twitter OAuth.

  Concept and code by Greg Leuch <http://www.gleuch.com>. Free for use by anyone.
