@HiddenCash Copycat Pops Up in Texas
We hope someone starts slapping greenbacks down around here. For now, the @HiddenCash meme is in San Antonio.

The viral Twitter account @HiddenCash, started by a purported rich real-estate developer in San Francisco, has spawned an offshoot in Texas.
@HiddenCashTexas, followed by more than 5,000 accounts, joined Twitter May 29, and has since made clear in tweets that cash drops will only be made in the Alamo City.
So I've been thinking, guys.... I think I'm going to keep this for San Antonio and surrounding areas.— Hidden Cash Texas (@HiddenCashTexas) June 4, 2014
The original @HiddenCash philanthropist started giving away money, normally $60-$200, in late May. The Twitter account's bio describes the cash drop-offs as "an anonymous social experiment for good." As such, @HiddenCash tweeted yesterday that it'd give away cash to the first ten people who "tweet a photo of them doing something nice for someone." The account retweeted pictures of people donating toys, giving blood and training a nun in a gym (seriously).
If you are going to copy our idea, great, as long as you do it responsibly and for the right reasons. And this week we are only here in SF.— Hidden Cash (@HiddenCash) June 2, 2014
