[Guest Blog] Join in BBC Radio1’s Twitter Race with Scott Mills & Mistajam

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

This is a Guest Blog by Sophie Brendel, Head of Digital Engagement at the BBC.

We’re racing (via the wonders of Social Media) Radio 1’s Scott Mills against 1 Xtra’s Mistajam live on today’s Scott Mills show.

Listeners and the public are being asked to vote for either Scott or MistaJam on Twitter – and he with the most tweets, wins a race.

But not just any race. A live streamed race, with 2 pimped out cars, on our very own Twitter-powered Scalextrix track!!

The race will be streamed live on the Radio1 website today during Scott’s show at around 5.15-5.45.

Tweet your support at either @scott_mills or @mistajam with the hashtags #BBCR1RACE and #smwldn.
