Clarification of Tweeting entries



Last night I participated in another author’s Twitter contest – she called out for people to twitter her and the first ten respondents would get free copies of some of her books (if you’re not on twitter, that’s a reason to be right there.) It highlighted a problem with twitter contests because at least one person who responded, who should have won a copy, wasn’t seen by the author. Turned out that if you have your Twitter account locked only people who follow you can see your tweets, so the author, who wasn’t following the entrant, didn’t see her entries.

I believe that if @leahbraemel is part of the tweet, I should see it on my “Mentions” column of Tweetdeck but I notice that sometimes they don’t show up even still. If you tweet, or retweet the link to my blog, I’ve been trying to respond to you with a “thanks” or something to say I’ve seen it. Therefore if you do not receive a reply from me that day (there may be a delay because I don’t have Twitter open all the time), send me an email at Leah @ LeahBraemel DOT com to let me know and I’ll make sure I friend you so I can see your tweets. I don’t want anyone to get frustrated or feel they’ve been ignored.

Here’s who I have on my list so far:
