CNET lets you jump the line for the Glitch beta

The new online game from Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield has just gone into beta, but there are thousands of people waiting to play. If you're one of the first 111 people to follow the link in this story, you could jump ahead of all of them.

This is your chance to enter the world of the giants.

Last week, Glitch , the new online game from Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield's company Tiny Speck went into beta. A whimsical playground that lets users meander through a complex, stylized virtual world, Glitch might someday be a place populated by millions of people looking for a little more than your standard Facebook game.

But for now, anyone wanting to play the game has to wait in a line of thousands of people queued up for the Glitch beta. Not you, though. At least, not if you're one of the first 111 people to follow this link. This is a free pass to get into the game and avoid the lengthy wait.

Soon enough, Glitch will be available to the whole world, but for now, there's a velvet rope in front of the entryway, and CNET is offering you the chance to hear the bouncer say "come on in." But only if you're quick. After 111 people click that link, the slots will be gone. So don't wait.
