GTPlanet & Nissan’s First 2012 #GTAcademy Twitter Viewing Party

November 15th, 2012 by Jordan Greer

As previously announced, GTPlanet has teamed up with Nissan to host a live Twitter party during Thursday night’s episode of GT Academy 2012, which aired on Spike TV at 11:30pm ET in the United States.

Over $500 in prizes were offered up for grabs, including the grand prize: a Logitech Driving Force GT wheel with a Big Boy Xlerator Wheel Stand. Other prizes included Nissan GT-R hooded jackets, a copy of Gran Turismo 5, and a $30 PlayStation Network gift card. (Review the official contest rules here.)

To win the grand prize, participants simply tuned into the show and posted a tweet containing the #GTAcademy hashtag between 11:00pm ET and 12:30am ET. We also posted trivia questions via @NissanNews and @GTPlanetNews.

If you’re not on Twitter, you can simply view this Twitter stream to follow along with all the commentary, or check out GT Academy’s Live Pit Pass. Enjoy the show!

UPDATE: This viewing party is now over, but we’ll be co-hosting another during the season finale on December 6. Thanks to all of you who took part and congratulations to our prize winners!

    I had a great time last week with the twitter party, I actually created the twitter account specificly to participate in that party. Got to meet a couple of the drivers there. Great fun

      Same here. The DVR didn’t record the last few minutes because of that “garbage” tattoo parlor show. :( I had to find another way to see the ending.

      You are looking for a GT Academy 370z. I can send one for free. Not sure if it is stock though. Add my PSN Id which is ORPHAN-THIRTY7. I’ll send it tomorrow night.

      lol why do you say that?

      I agree 916. I usually sleep at 11 to go to school and I still barely have energy to get up in the morning. I would’ve loved to have seen it and participate on the giveaway but it was just too late on a weekday. At least for me.
