Happy Tweet Like Ovi Day))))))))))))))))


You guys, today is August 8th (8/8) and you know what that means! It’s time to celebrate Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and his amazing communication style on teh Twitters with our very own made-up holiday, Tweet Like Ovi Day.

To participate, jump on the social network, drink approximately 9 to 10 Red Bulls, and then recklessly abandon all grammar and punctuation rules you learned in grade school. Make sure to conclude every tweet with a hahaha and some exuberant close parenthesis )))))). You’ll also want to include the hashtag #TweetLikeOviDay in your submissions. Let’s get this ish trending.

As always, if you need some style-guide tips, follow the master himself @Ovi8 and peruse his timeline. This year, we’re also encouraging our readers to submit photos. Put on your favorite Nike t-shirts and hats, black out a tooth, and strike a pose.

We’ll be embedding our favorite tweets of the day as they happen below. Have fun.

This gon’ be so sick))))))))))
