Pimp me out on Twitter, Win an iTunes Gift Card

12 years ago in Pointless Posts by Brent | 13 Comments


I’m in the mood to meet more friends on Twitter. So, I decided to make it a little more fun. Here’s how it works: Everyone who adds me or promotes my page somehow via Twitter today (November 19th, 2007 *see update below, we’re doing it again today – the 20th) will get dropped in to a random drawing for a $25 iTunes Gift Card. I’m more curious than anything as to how fast information can travel through Twitter and what-not. Call it a social media experiment or something. I have no idea what will happen, but… BRING IT ON! (haha)

Here’s a tip: Want to meet new Twitter friends too? “track iboughtamac” and see what I see today.

Another tip: Use TwitterSearch to find the tweets if you can’t use “track”

*Update: I pulled Justine’s tweet out of the hat this morning so she won. Let’s do it all again today!

Okay, it’s a weekend and I’ve had a long week so this post is one to add to the “Pointless Post” category. Startrail is a application by Pawn Software, but I wouldn’t call it an “Essential App” by any means. It’s just one of those things that you get to waste time and that’s about […]
