It’s almost that time again—time to say “so long” to the year and ring in a new one, with lots of opportunities to capture and share moments of celebration, or just moments to use later against your buddies. Just kidding. In all seriousness though, when we look back on #WhatAYear 2011 has been, it’s great to see all of the moments we were able to share with you—new and seasoned RadioShack fans alike—on Facebook, on Twitter and in person.
You were with us inside the adrenaline-filled Team RadioShack races, helping us #BackTheShack in Cali and following the race with Jordan and Steve #WhenInFrance, winning amazing prize packs along the way. Off the bikes, you have helped us raise millions of dollars for LIVESTRONG. #WhatAYear.
In Chicago, you did a #Holla4Lolla when Mike, Adrian and I were hanging out at Lollapalooza, and a few of you even got VIP access just for being great fans. Heading down south, you joined Paige and Breanne at Austin City Limits, where they brought you highlights from some of the hottest new bands and your all-time favorites. #WhatAYear.
This year, our D.I.Y.ers got a new platform for showing off their great creations at The Great Create. We got in on the action at Dorkbot Austin at SXSW and created a build-off between two presenters. We were even able to catch up with some of our biggest D.I.Y.ers at Maker Faire in NYC where we saw the coolest new gadgets and projects you are building. Most importantly, we listened to you—Arduino products are now available at RadioShack! #WhatAYear.
Not only did we take you behind the scenes of some of the greatest events of 2011, we were the first to give you a peek at some of the greatest mobile devices of 2011. From the Consumer Electronics Show and CTIA, we brought you updates about the newest mobile devices. You played #ISpy with us and lots of you won gift cards and brand new, RadioShack-exclusive EVO 3D White phones. We gave you an exclusive preview of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2. And when we welcomed Verizon to the RadioShack family, your tweets won many of you some very big prizes. It was definitely #KindOfABigDeal! Oh, #WhatAYear.
But that’s not all, folks. We’ve got one more trick up our sleeves before the year is done. If you didn’t already catch it, we’re celebrating #WhatAYear it has been with one more giant giveaway on Twitter! Believe us, you don’t want to miss this one. So join us now and maybe you can bid farewell to 2011 with a brand new …
