Dotcom invites three to swim at Kim's
Following the Twitter success of "#SwimatKims", where three men from Auckland found themselves with golden tickets to party pool-side at Kim Dotcom's Coatesville mansion, the internet tycoon is looking to repeat the event for all 30,000 of his followers.
What was initially thought a parody Kim Dotcom Twitter account turned out to be anything but, when three members of the public found themselves living the high life, pool-side, at the internet tycoon's multi-million-dollar mansion.
Now, the multimillionaire famed for enjoying his money is looking to share some of it with his followers tweeting today:
"#swimatkims will return for everybody. Need a big public pool. Awesome DJ. Sound & lights. Who's in? Hey @nzben can you create a website?"
While Dotcom's mansion is a mammoth 250,000 square feet, a public pool would be better suited to house his growing legions of followers.
Dotcom joined Twitter just last Tuesday, and by Sunday he had topped more than 33,000 followers.
In his usual flamboyant style, Dotcom was enjoying a typical day at the mansion with his friends as they scooted around the palatial estate on four-wheel motorbikes and segways.
Tweeting about it, Dotcom got the following response from Tech expert Ben Gracewood AKA @nzben:
@KimDotcom do you guys just drive around in modified electric vehicles and pose for photos? I could live like that.
To which Dotcom retweeted him and replied "Come over now!"
Unsure what to expect, Gracewood, Media 7 reporter Jose Barbosa, and then later Vaughn Davis, headed to the Dotcom Manor while the rest of the twitterverse watched the pool party play out on their feeds.
The #SwimatKims as it was known on Twitter saw the men enjoy Sunday evening in Dotcom's heated pool, as canapes and towers of cupcakes were brought to them. They then warmed up beside an open log fire in the Coatesville mansion.
Gracewood has also tweeted that he is now developing the website, so Twitter fans will be able to keep up with developments in what is shaping up to be one of the country's biggest pool parties.
