I promised I’d be nice to #Quartz this #MinCup, although SOME people think it’s mean to point out you can access quartz’s electrical properties by hitting, squishing, or sawing it.

So, fine. Strategy tip. Why not tap existing Steven Universe fans to recruit voters?
The .gif opportunities are amazing considering Amethyst (the purple gem of #Quartz) is a major character.

Here she is getting a helping hand from #MinCup2018’s champion #Garnet:
One of the reoccurring #MinCup2019 arguments is that #Quartz is more stable than #IceMin at surface temperatures.

You’ve got a .gif for that. NO ONE USED IT THE ENTIRE CUP. Come on, it’s in the first handful of “Amethyst Steven Universe” .gifs pre-loaded into the Twitter app!
Lean on the history of #MinCup, which was founded so @tectonictweets could win an argument that #quartz is the best, by having all past champions (Peridot as gem #Olivine & #Garnet) group-hug Amethyst. Oh, the heartstrings!
Pull out all the stops with Amethyst gearing up for battle!

You could even use this to talk about how #quartz is piezoelectric & triboluminescent under pressure!
Put voters on the spot with a direct POV of the possible winner’s circle.

They’re even in chronological order, 2017’s winner to the left with your 2019 hopeful to the right!
A strong argument for #quartz comes down to its accessible beauty, a gem you can actually afford.

Surprise! There’s a .gif for that, too.
Like. I don’t get it.

Steven Universe has a huge cult fandom of people who would likely find it entertaining to crash a geoscience social media game. They watch a cartoon starring gems. Recruit new voters.
You even have an opener .gif to deal with this near-50/50 almost-tie that #IceMin & #Quartz have been locked in all day!
I’m on team #IceMin and hope it wins, so I’m not going out to recruit #Quartz voters for #MinCup2019Final.

But seriously. You’ve got a MASSIVE inventory of professionally-animated Amethyst .gifs with built-in fans. Play dirty. Drag ‘em into this fight.
