Microsoft Starts Twitter Campaign Around Android's Malware issues.

Just in time for the US launch of the Nokia Lumia, drama stirs around Android’s recent massive malware problems. So Microsoft’s Ben Rudolph offers to give away 5 free Windows Phone 7s to Upset Android users that use the hashtag “#droidrage”. The hashtag got over 3,200 replies and even caught the attention of Forbes. Someone even made a song about it. A personal twitter giveaway probably accidentally sparked a good chunk of advertising. Will this help WP7? Probably not aside from the Nokia support nothing looks too good for Window Phone. I mean come on how do you only have 1 severally outdated phone on Verizon in 2011? Hopefully the random success will make MS push the platform further in 2012.
