Twitter Contest Rules

As most of our Twitter followers already know, this month we have started a Twitter campaign on our Fact Republic Twitter Page (@FactRepublic). There has been a lot of confusion and questions related to this campaign, so here are some ground rules and terms with regards to this contest.

The Prize

The grand prize for this month’s Twitter campaign is iPad Air 3 (64GB version). Now one has to bear in mind that iPad Air 3 still hasn’t been released. There are rumors that it will be released in August of 2017. In case, it is released by next month, the winner will be shipped a brand new iPad Air 3 (64 GB) by the end of August 2017.

In case, Apple doesn’t release iPad Air 3 next month, we will make sure the winner is shipped a 128 GB version of iPad Air 2 (wifi + cellular) plus some accessories (Smart Case Cover and Screen Protector) by September 1, 2017.

How will the winner be chosen?

We have allocated points for each Twitter activity. The points each activity will carry will be as follows:

Follow: 10 points (Following our page @FactRepublic)
Retweet: 4 Points (Retweeting our tweets)
Comment (by tagging friends): 4 points (Commenting on our tweets)
Comments (with hashtags): 3 points (Commenting on our tweets)
Comments (any other type): 2 points (Commenting on our tweets)
Like: 1 point (Liking our tweets)

We are going to enter the name of the contestants in an excel sheet for each point, which means if you gather 4 points, your name will be added 4 times into the sheet (6 times for 6 points). At the end of the month before drawing a winner, we will randomize the list of names in the excel sheet and then draw a winner.

The winner will be chosen by feeding the total number of entries in the sheet into a random number generator. The number output by the generator will be hailed the winner of the contest (the number corresponding to the row and name in the Excel sheet).

How to increase your chances of winning?

With each retweet, comment and like you will increase your chances of winning the grand prize. This is because your name will appear as many times in the Excel sheet as the number of points you carry (according to the point board given above).

Who can participate?

Anyone from North America, Europe, Asia and Australia can participate in this contest.

How will the prize be delivered?

In most the continents named above, Amazon is available. Therefore we will ship the winner the grand prize by purchasing it in their name and shipping it to their address. In case, your country doesn’t have Amazon services, we will look into international shipping.

Any contest next month?

For next month’s contest, we are going to include our Facebook page as well as our Twitter page. The grand prize for the next month will be Apple iPad Pro. So stay tuned.
