LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — A philanthropist tweeting clues to find hidden money in Washington is taking their generosity northward to Baltimore.

The mysterious Twitter user @IHidTheCash has been stashing cash along with a note to its finder to do good in the world since last month.

On Wednesday, the account announced plans to do the same in Baltimore, noting “it only makes sense.”

The original philanthropic social media personality, whose Twitter handle is @HiddenCash, told the San Francisco Chronicle they wanted to conduct a social experiment after closing a $500,000 real estate deal. Their account explode from a few hundred followers on Friday to more than 230,000 and counting by early Thursday.

One of his clues told San Francisco followers to “find Mr. Franklin along the ‘crookedest street,’ (towards the bottom).”

Translation: There was a $100 bill at the bottom of Lombard Street, the popular touristy thoroughfare that’s best known as the “Crookedest Street in The World.”
