Last night, the blogging world exploded with the news that many people were seemingly getting comped instant Hyatt Dimaond status. Even the Hyatt Diamond challenge was considered too lucrative, so they removed it a few months ago.
Needless to say, getting comped Hyatt Diamond status just by sending a Twitter DM is a HUGE benefit.

It all seemed to start with this Tweet from @HyattConcierge, seemingly acting off of the recent purchase of SPG by Marriott hotels

Since then, the entire Internet has been DMing Hyatt looking to be comped to Hyatt Diamond status. The reports that I have seen are that Hyatt was looking for your existing status as well as a screenshot of your most recent stay.
At this point, I think that Hyatt perhaps did not quite realize the implications of what they had done, and probably some executive at Hyatt is in a conference room right now figuring out if they REALLY want to add this many new Diamonds to the ranks. Understandably, existing Hyatt Diamonds (that earned it the “hard way”) are a bit upset that their ranks may become super diluted
I rank Hyatt Diamond status as just about the best top-tier status out there, as it comes with free restaurant breakfast for 4 guests (or club lounge access) as well as 4 suite upgrades that are confirmable at the time of booking.
At this point, I’m not expecting much, but I gave it a shot and I recommend doing it as well if you’re interested in trying out Hyatt. I’ve also read that you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with the pertinent information as well.
(EDIT: It appears that the Hyatt Twitter team is super backlogged (duh!), so they have been directing people to email email@example.com)
