By Published on .

Over on Ad Age's Small Agency Diary blog, Tom Martin recounts a recently Twitter experiment he ran. The goal? Use Twitter to convince folks that Mardi Gras is so much more than bare boobs and booze. In fact, he said, Mardi Gras is actually a family-oriented event and he hoped to give people a sense of it by twittering it for four days straight -- 185 tweets in all.
