In its first Twitter event since release last Thursday, Fire Emblem Heroes challenged Nintendo followers to retweet a post 10,000 times. It apparently wasn’t much of a trial.
If players could retweet the message below 10,000 times worldwide, Nintendo would reward them with 10,000 Hero Feathers. With that reward in mind, the player community retweeted the post more than three times over within a twelve hour span.

For those not necessarily in the know, Hero Feathers are items in Fire Emblem Heroes that allow characters to evolve into versions with higher stats. In order to transform from a three star character into a four star character, the game requires 2,000 Hero Feathers. Going from four stars to five stars requires 20,000.
Regardless of utterly destroying the goal of 10,000 retweets, the reward will remain at 10,000 Hero Feathers. Nintendo has said that the reward will issue to all players later this week.
The 10,000 Hero Feather reward should go a little ways toward keeping people playing the new mobile game. It seems as though developer Intelligent Systems already has some plans for those who stick with it.
