    entering twitter comps 9th Feb 18 at 5:58 PM
    hello everyone,
    just after some advice about entering twitter comps please, does everyone comment on the post even when its not a requirement to enter? or can you win without the comment?
    thanks everyone

    People do win without comment but some believe a comment helps.

    I don't comment as a rule unless I genuinely have something to say.

    Hiya,

    Theoretically, you can win without a comment (unless it specifies to comment, obviously) but I always end up writing something...
    Strictly no begging or sob stories, and not a generic cut-and-paste comment with token emojis that you've seen the same comper post a dozen times already today!

    I think leaving a unique comment helps organisers to see you as an actual person and not just a rt'd spambot.

    I also suspect that my commenting is the reason I've avoided being 'shadowbanned', despite me rt'ing a lot of competitions.

    Just my thoughts, best of luck

    Worth a try, I always figured it can't hurt.
    Plus it makes twitter a more interesting place when you occasionally get responses

    My account was suspended yesterday and I'm waiting for them to unlock it. The procedure to unlock it myself isn't an option.

    Slightly annoying but I had a chuckle to myself that it's only happening now after being active since 09 and have 96K tweets.

    I mainly RT with the occasional comment so maybe something to bear in mind.

    If you like, you can message me your username and I can drop you messages from time to time? I do think two way interactions help reduce the risk of blocking... (I've probably jinxed myself now :rotfl)

    I don't think you HAVE to comment, but anecdotally I've had more success in periods where I've commented lots too rather than just RTing.
