    Twitter Competitions 25th Jul 10 at 7:16 AM
    Good Morning everyone,

    I did seach but coudn't find one, I wanted to start a post about Twitter Competitions- as with the post about facebook and having an account for just comping. Well I have a twitter acc solely for comping, but mostly the people I follow or following me are the competition sites. So just wandered if anyone wanted to follow me and I will follow you back.

    I will try and answer some of the questions, but please have a look at the link to the Compergrapevine guide to Twitter above, or this post by Kisto:-

    Firstly, in order to retweet a competition, you need to go to the Twitter page of the company or person running the comp and then click on Retweet from there, don't just click on retweet on the page of the person that you are looking at, who has just entered themselves.

    Secondly, if you win, the company that is telling you that you have won will send a message that includes your Twitter name and the @ symbol. Therefore for example, if dubs31 had won a prize, the company that organised the comp would send a tweet saying something like "Congratulations @dubs31, you have won the prize." dubs31 would need to check on Twitter from time to time for any messages that included "@dubs31". The way that dubs31 would do this is to log on to Twitter and then on the right hand side of the Twitter page, click on the hyperlink that says "@dubs31". This would show any tweets that included "@dubs31".

    Lastly, someone asked if you needed to "follow" someone to enter a competition. It will say on Twitter if you have to do this, but usually, the answer is yes, you need to follow and retweet.

    Hope this helps.

    I think I am following a lot of you, the ones I can just click anyway! I am a bit lost on twitter too, joined it for the comps but can never seem to find any!

    hoping someone can help...when a comp asks you to send them the answer @..... does anyone know how do you do that? I got up 'send messages' on my profile, however some names of people i'd followed came up, and it wouldnt let me put the comp name in

    Soz for being a twitter twit lol, but i havent got a clue!
    Thank you
    Back on it!
