(Newser) – Twitter is playing host to a hit new game, all about whether you could survive a day as Beyonce's assistant without getting fired. "They gotta start giving pulitzers for tweets," New York Times reporter Astead W. Herndon wrote of the choose-your-own-adventure-style thread created by 19-year-old student Landon Rivera over a span of five hours. "It's pretty much divided off common logic and some Beyonce trivia," Rivera tells BuzzFeed News. The first task is deciding what you'd feed Beyonce for breakfast: yogurt and strawberries or a five-star breakfast. "My own assistant just got fired on the very first question," tweeted Chrissy Teigen.

A correct answer leads users on a quest to keep the singer entertained and on time for an event, all while dodging paparazzi and trying not to cause an affront. As Business Insider notes, "it's really hard not to get fired." "I hope [Beyonce] would laugh and not be too offended, especially since I kind of twisted her persona to be a cliche celebrity," says Rivera. Users are impressed, at least. Rivera's initial tweet was liked nearly 250,000 times. Another tweet suggests people are offering to send money to the student, who's currently working on a second thread. BuzzFeed reports he's also been asked to pitch a TV show. (Read more Twitter stories.)
