Shatner Tweets Jeopardy!

Posted on December 4th, 2018

Twitter tweet

On November 20, 2018 the gameshow Jeopardy! had a category called "Forwards & Backwards" (which can be seen here) which depicted similar answers you would find in the Levidrome game, Cryptic Clues. And guess what, the questions were levidromes.

This category did not go unnoticed by levidromists.

William Shatner noticed and posted a Tweet to Jeopardy! stating "Hey @Jeopardy you should change your category to #Levidrome It's a real word and less letters"

After not receiving a response, Shatner tweeted another Tweet to Jeopardy! stating "I believe today is the anniverary of suggesting that #Levidrome be put into the dictionary! Have we heard from @Jeopardy about this? Where's Trebek?" Jeopardy! responded with "Where's Trebek? He's trying to figure out how a 6-year-old might get a word in the dictionary before him!".

This story was picked up by some news outlets, particularly CTV News on November 29, 2018.

This is the sort of attention we need to see. Let's make this happen.
