On September 10th, 1993 The X-Files premiered at 9pm eastern on the Fox Network and kicked off a wild and unimaginably successful journey that would turn it into a worldwide phenomenon. The impact of that day on popular culture has not been matched by a television show since. The X-Files paved the way for theatrical storytelling on the silver screen and created an environment where stories that push the envelope could not only start but also thrive on television. It became the golden standard, and we miss it terribly.
In celebration of all The X-Files is and was, we're teaming up with our friends at The X-Files 3 in 2012 on Facebook, Aussie X-Files Fans on Facebook, Beyond The Sea IT, X-Files Memories, Area 42, Expedientes X ES, Grupo The X-FIles Chile, Pinoy X-Philes and many other local communities, for an ambitious new Tweet-A-Thon. This also serves as an open invitation for all other fan communities across the web to join us on this historic day because no one gets there alone. Just say the word and your group will be added to the list of party goers!
Join us on Tuesday, September 10th to show your love for what brought us all together as fans, friends, and family. It will be a day of reminiscing, celebrating, and showing 20th Century Fox that their 20-year fanbase, like the show, has become a worldwide phenomenon.
The Tweet-A-Thon will run from the moment the first time zone (New Zealand) hits midnight on September 10th until the last time zone (Hawaii) hits midnight on September 11th. So wherever you are in the world, join us in tweeting for The X-Files 20th Anniversary! You can also tweet directly to Fox (@20thcenturyfox), too. Check out the guidelines after the jump to help us make the biggest impact possible.
