Twitter Give-Away

Upon recently reaching 5,000 followers on Twitter, someone had a great idea: I should give away something free! I think other people have had this idea for a long time. We call those BitTorrent geeks.

This time, however, they actually asked my permission! See what happens when you say please? (Note: please do not say “please” in the aftermath of this webpost. It only works once.)

Originally, I was going to select a winner in some way that is creative and fun. I was informed, however, that lawyers do not like creative and fun, and that I might run afoul of lottery laws if I did anything that burbled with personality.  So on Friday night I will be randomly selecting, with the help of some internet randomizer, 5 lucky winners! No purchase necessary!!

Oooh, prizes!

If you were not in the first 5,000, but you do follow me before Friday, it is quite likely that the randomizer will be simply too stupid to screen you out. (This is why I was a terrible disciplinarian when I was a teacher. The hard luck cases get me every time: “Ah, but Mr. Weeks! My syphilitic cat threw up on my homework!” “Um, yuck. Ok, turn it in tomorrow.”)

I will contact the Lucky Five on Monday. And remember, lottery games should not be played for investment purposes. Unless, you know

    OH MY GOD. I missed out on the book plates… but if the universe is fair and favours equality like they say it does (yeah…..”fair”……. “they”…… “equality”) then this should come my way, yes? Yes?

    Anyway, in all seriousness, this is a GREAT package for giving away!

    Dude, you know I liked you before you were “cool” ;). Anyway, congratulations on gathering all those followers who have discovered your truly amazing work, mate. There probably is some kind of algorithm that will let me know if I win or not, but I think the answer is – I have 1 in 5,121 chance.

    Is this international? I know a lot of these giveaways are location dependant. I’m in the UK.

    WOW. Too bad I don’t have a twitter nor a facebook account or whatever. My friends told me once that when they couldn’t find me there they thought that I do not exist or that I am dead… Ach, friends…

    Just out of curiosity, what was this fun and creative way you came up with in picking the winners.
    Would you be able to say that much without rocking that boat your lawyers are in? 🙁

    Oh Mr. Weeks, you just made my day. Unfortunaely it’s not because of your awesome prizes for the twitter give away, I sadly do not do twitter. That comment about you being a terrible disciplinarian threw me into a fit of giggles. I’m sure the people in my dorm think I’m an absolute lunatic now, but it was worth it! I can see it now, comming to you with my most serious face saying my cat threw up on my homework and you being reviled. Tee hee, please forgive this extremely random comment, I just had to tell you how much you make me laugh!
