The hidden cash Twitter treasure hunt mania has spread to many states all over the United States, urging those in Florida, Texas, and Colorado to make a run for hidden cash stuffed into an envelope.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, the original hidden cash Twitter hunt started in California with someone using the Twitter handle HiddenCash. The anonymous millionaire explained his rationale for creating the hidden cash game:
“I just closed a real estate deal where my profit was about half-a-million dollars, and I decided even before it closed that one of the things I wanted to do with the money was something fun in SF I played around with different ideas, and frankly, they were too complicated. I was thinking of a ‘Survivor’-type game, or something like it at some point. I have no plans to stop anytime soon. In fact, we will also drop some in L.A. next week (where he said he will be on business). And maybe expand to more cities.”
The hints given in the hidden cash hunt typically are straight forward since the tweets come packaged with photos and a general location. Although some are a bit trickier, including one that read, “Sounds like where a robin or eagle might keep their money.” Los Angeles locals figured out this was referring to “bird bank,” which was a clever reference to Burbank.

The hidden cash copycats have started new Twitter accounts with handles referencing the city or the nation. For example, HiddenCashTPA refers to the hidden cash game in Tampa, Florida, while HiddenCashUK is an account specific to England, although perhaps the British may start creating account specific to different areas of the island nation.

Much like the original hidden cash creator the new benefactors are choosing to remain anonymous, although considering how fast these envelopes of hidden cash have spread it seems obvious that the original person is not organizing it from behind the scene. In this case being generous is just going viral, although the new creators of the hidden cash game will still link back to the original HiddenCash in their tweets.
What do you think about this “anonymous social experiment for good” called the hidden cash game?
