How to Take Part
To take part in the contest, all you have to do is to send a tweet from your Twitter account with the hashtag #simplytweet. There are a few requirements:
- You must send the tweet using SimplyTweet (you can use the Lite version if you don’t wish to pay, but I appreciate your support).
- You must send the tweet from an account which is not protected. If I can’t see the tweet because it is deleted or protected, you can’t win.
- Say whatever you want in the text, but if you give a good reason why you ought to win the iPhone 3GS, maybe you will get lucky.
As an independent software developer working alone, having built a product (SimplyTweet) and made continuous updates to it (8 major updates in 8 months, with version 2.0 in the works), it is important to get people to know about the product.
I am going to run an experiment.
Starting 4th July 2009, GMT 12am, I will be running a contest for 7 days (till 10th July 2009 , GMT 11:59pm).
I will pick a winner randomly everyday which the contest is running. Each winner will win an iPhone Gift Card of $50 (see footnote 1). At the end of 7 days, I will personally pick an extra winner who will win an iPhone Gift Card of $199 (see footnote 1). According to Apple, this is the price for the 16GB version of iPhone 3GS (see footnote 1). The 1st 7 winners can win a maximum of 1 $50 iPhone Gift Card. The 8th winner can be anyone (i.e. one of the 1st 7 winners has a chance to win too).
You are free to tweet more than once.
I will announce with my Twitter account @simplytweet, everyday at GMT 4pm, the previous day’s winner and update this post with the winner list.
I’ll contact the winners only at the end of the contest and arrange for delivery of the gift cards by 31st August 2009.
Not all countries have iPhone gift cards available. If they are not, I will be willing to provide an iTunes voucher of equivalent value.
This is all in good spirit, but I reserve the right to have the final say of picking who the winners are and will not be liable for any dispute, harm or hurt caused. I also reserve the right to call off the contest if anyone gives me a good (read: very BAD) reason to. So play nice and let’s have some fun.
 According to Apple, the gift card can be used for all things Mac and iPod. See Apple for the official and final terms.
