Hockey Playoff Bet Sees Tourism Winnipeg Take Over Saint Paul Twitter Account

A friendly wager between Tourism Winnipeg and its Minnesota counterpart saw a Twitter takeover on Wednesday, as followers of @SaintPaul were educated on all the cool ways those living in Minneapolis-St. Paul can experience Winnipeg.

It all began when the Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild found themselves facing off in the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. As you already know, Winnipeg won the series last Friday in a 5-0 shutout at Bell MTS Place.

Prior to the big win, it all started when Visit Saint Paul opened up the floodgates to a wager suggestion from Tourism Winnipeg.

The reigns of St. Paul’s tourism account were handed over for one hour on Wednesday, where Tourism Winnipeg sent a series of tweets highlighting some of the city’s best attractions, festivals and all around goodness.

The tweet storm ended with a hat tip to passionate Jets fans and the size of the playoff crowds gathering for Winnipeg Whiteout street parties. In a not-so-subtle show of hockey pride, the account put money on Winnipeg winning the Stanley Cup. Go Jets Go!
