If you don't understand tweetering, it's UKC's most complex compeititon ever...

Fair point!

If you don't understand Tweetering here's the basic guide:

If you want to enter a draw for a Petzl Grigri 2 and a weekend pass for ShAFF set up a Twitter account (if you can set up a UKC account to post here you can set up a Twitter account) and copy and paste the suggested text into the box for your first Tweet. If you don't ever use Twitter again no problem. About 60 seconds effort.

There's a slight problem with that approach, as it says "The winner will be contacted directly via Twitter"! :-)

Twitter direct messages are emailed to the email account you used to set up your Twitter account by default. You can, of course, turn this off.

In reply to MattH: Have Twitter put you up to this? I don't want to set up a Twitter account. Thats not very fair is it, can you not just ask us a question?

There's a whole load of other competitions going on in conjunction with ShAFF (which don't require you to get a Twitter account).

After having used Twitter for a while and grown to despise it, I refuse to participate in anything that involves Twitter. I don't doubt that a lot of other people think the same way.

See my previous post for details of a bunch of competitions that you can enter that have nothing to do with Twitter :-)

A lot of people do use it though - I use it to keep in touch with lots of literary magazines, for instance...

Which you can google & answer easily...

...have a wee think why ShAFF would want people to Tweet instead on just ONE of the many competitions - variety is after all, the spice of any event no?

I have just become a tweeter to keep up with the cricket - works a treat for me!

Exactly :-)

Ten years ago I remember stating to my friends that I would never have a mobile phone. A few years later I remember promising to myself that I would never spurn new technologies or trends quite so quickly!
