    Twitter comp - do you think commenting increases chances? 11th Jun 17 at 5:19 PM
    I was wondering if people thought that commenting on Twitter comps that only specify RT&F increases your chances of winning or not?
    Same with fb comps that only ask to Like and Share?
    I hope you have a happy day full of kindness

    Commenting on Twitter would definitely help provide information that you are not a bot or automated account, if your account is full of competitions, but other than that it shouldn't effect your chances of winning.

    If you are asked to Follow and Retweet that should be enough.
    The same with Facebook, if you are asked to share (which is against Facebook terms and conditions anyway) then all you should need to do is share.

    So yes it may give you more of a chance in the fact that it proves that you are real, but no it shouldn't give you more of a chance of winning.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    In theory, it shouldn't. However - i have won twitter comps where they replied to my comment to say i had won (therefore must have selected a winner from comments rather than pressing RT).

    A lot of companies don't understand what RT means, they think it means reply ( you often see the phrase 'RT with the hashtag' - that doesn't even make sense unless they are confusing RT with reply. Therefore just hitting the RT button wouldn't be enough for the comps that make this mistake.
