Tip: You can add as many tweets as you want.

Here’s how to add multiple tweets: Add more than 1 tweet and set to daily. Each concurrent time the user re-enters, they will be asked to do the next tweet. This cycle will continue until they have completed all of your tweets. At this time they will be finished with this entry method.

Why don’t we allow users to tweet the same tweet?

As per Twitter’s TOS, duplicate tweets are not allowed. So, even if SweepWidget did permit this, the tweet wouldn’t be accepted by Twitter.

Admins love daily tweet and that’s why we set it up this way. It’s a little more work, but you still have the benefit of allowing users to tweet daily. AND, we’re the ONLY giveaway service that offer this option… OH YEA!
