Meet George: He Tweeted To Win

The winner of Lufthansa’s “Tweet To Win” contest for a free seat and (nearly) all expenses paid on this year’s Mega DO is George Papadopoulos, a.k.a. gpapadop, who double his chance by tweeting from two different accounts. “I came across the Lufthansa tweet — I follow them on Twitter — and after hearing great things about what happened last year and seeing some of the picture, I thought ‘Wow, what a great experience to be a part of,’” he recalls thinking. “And when when I saw all I had to do was retweet what they already had, I thought, ‘Why not?’”

He’s angling for a turn in Lufthansa’s simulator, “which I think will be something to remember for the rest of my life if I can get in on that,” says George. “But mostly I like being around planes and being around FlyerTalkers — even though I’m not a Star Alliance guy, I’m a Delta guy, unfortunately. Still, I’m happy.”

Don’t worry, George, we won’t hold it against you.
