Twitter has been used in many ways as an excellent platform for marketing and promotion. Twitter contests emerged to be one of the simplest and most efficient means for companies and brands to promote their products. They are usually entered with a simple tweet, one that gives the participants a chance to win a prize, from iPhones to $10 cash. Tweets serve as a viral element for the contest holder to promote his/her services, the better the prize offered the better chance for the promoter’s message to reach more people.

This is more about the fun rather than the prize itself. Most of the contests on this site don’t really have any prizes, but it is funny and challenging trying to come up with the best drawing with the tools they provide. Check it out, you’ll like it!
If you have noticed, most of the contests listed end in few days – by the end of this month -. It is honestly our fault that we haven’t worked on this earlier, we promise you next time to draw our list earlier in the month so that you have some more time to check them out and participate, but hey, you still have the chance, hurry up and grab your prize!
If you know any other interesting contests that are taking place, please let us and others know in the comments section. We wish you all the luck in the listed contests above. Let us know if you get lucky and win :-)
