Thinking of running your own Twitter competition but not sure where to start? Follow these steps to create your own Twitter competition, including:
1: choosing a prize,
2: game of skill vs game of chance
3: designing entry requirements
Twitter has their own set of guidelines for conducting competitions on their platform, available at: https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-contest-rules.
Looking for some twitter contest ideas? Some of the most common Twitter entry mechanics include:
If you are requiring entrants to use their own Twitter profile for entry, ensure you are clear that they must post from a ‘public’ profile in order for you to view their tweet.
Must include a rule stating anyone found to use multiple accounts will be ineligible.
Do not run a Twitter promotion which encourages posting the same tweet repeatedly, e.g. whoever retweets the most wins.
Twitter recommends including a limit of 1 entry per person each day.
If you require an entrant to tweet to their own account for entry, you need a way to view all entries.
If the tweet mention your Twitter account (e.g. @XX), you’ll be able to see all the updates in your Notifications timeline.
Simply running a public search may not show every single update, and some contestants may be filtered from search for quality.
Remember to ensure that your competition also complies with the Twitter contest rules and guidelines available at: https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies#twitter-rules.
