Bring on the Tweetnical Difficulties

It seems that there has been a weakening in the Capitol’s communication systems of late. The Hunger Games UK twitter account has been suffering lots of security breaches for the past month by some troublesome rebels.

The end result is that we get a frequent switch between messages from the rebellion looking for signs of support (show us your three-finger salutes, Tributes!)

Mixed with “official communications” from The Capitol threatening to bring down those awful hackers of the revolution.

The hacking of the Hunger Games UK Twitter is just a warm up for this guy.

I’m glad to see that Plutarch and Beetee have been staying busy.  And it’s a pretty sweet strategy that they’re employing.  Distract the Capitol by repeatedly attacking an outpost. Make them divert more resources protecting the Hunger Games UK account… and then bam, go after the big target @TheHungerGames with its 1 million or so “citizens” awaiting inspiration.  And voila Mockingjay propos for all of Panem to see!  (Rest assured no one in The Capitol can see this post thanks to Beetee’s technical assistance as well. Don’t worry, we would never undermine the rebellion).

Ok, back to the real world of 2014. I have a lot of doubts that what’s been happening with the UK account has any larger tie-in to the global marketing campaign for Mockingjay Part 1. So probably no propos just yet. But the tweets are a fun little diversion and I appreciate them. And if the account is telling the truth, then soon (DVD release?) the Hunger Games UK account will be “hacked” again and something will be released. Maybe an image compilation showing the many faces of fans who submitted photos. So if you want to take part in this stage of the rebellion, send those salutes with #HopeReturns and let’s see what happens.

Keep working away Beetee. I prefer your hacking to the weapon-making.

  1. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
    guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  2. I’m suspecting that it look like a sign to come as to the type of viral websites that will be popping up as a herald to MJ: Part 1. Possibly a propaganda site that rails against the rebels and intermittently has “technical difficulties”.
    While it’s unlikely considering that they probably want to make his appearance a sort-of-surprise in the movie, it’d be funny if the site also has a subsection where there are blurbs from Peeta critical of the Rebellion.

    1. I really hope they don’t portray District 13 as angels. This would be a great opportunity to show the consequences of idealism in wartime situations. I know this may be a taste to what is to come but I’m excited for the direction they are heading.

      P.S Does anyone know how much they are going to show in MJ trailers? There is no more lead up to the games so i have no idea how they are going to pitch the movie now.
