Social Tip: Twitter Draw

Twitter

If you're running a contest using Twitter, and need to randomly select a user to be the winner, then this tip from The Social Hour 170 will save you time and hassle. It's a website called Twitter Draw, and it will simply pick a Twitter user at random. It can pick a random follower of an account, a random retweeter, or it can choose based on a specific hashtag used.

A lot of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter have certain rules for contesting, and they often insist that the winner be chosen at random. It's a lot more convenient than copying and pasting a bunch of user names into a spreadsheet to pick someone. Twitter Draw is free, and can be found at twitterdraw.com.
