A professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is looking for the help of his students in the pursuit of a rather bizarre goal: getting blocked on Twitter by President Donald Trump.

The professor, who has yet to be determined, is the offering of extra credit and a free absence for a student to him with a tweet that reaches its mission statement, People reported.

Erin Cary, a student at the university, tweeted a screenshot of the command, that on Twitter the past week. It is liked more than 150,000 times and retweeted 55,000 times as of Tuesday evening.

High school, teacher: I have to be objective. You can’t know what my political views.

“Here are the details for the Twitter Extra Credit assignment: write a tweet for @realDonaldTrump and e-mail it to me. It may not contain profanity, personal threats. I Post them to my Twitter account … If you tweet successfully is my account blocked by @realDonaldTrump, you will receive fie points on your final grade, and a free absence.”

Cary has taken to Twitter to ask for inspiration and ideas, as students have only until the end of the semester, “or until someone wins” to claim the prize.

“As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Good luck,” the assignment reads.

Cary also said she doesn’t want to let go of the professor’s Twitter handle, for fear of “angry trump supporters attacking him!”

Wow, I showed this to the prof on Friday and was excited Bc there were more than 100 likes. For the people who ask for its @, I don’t want to upset trump supporters attacking him!! Also thanks for all the people who have dmed me with ideas ๐Ÿ™‚
