It seems like only yesterday I blogged about reaching 16,000 tweets, and the wins of focused tweeting, but the day before yesterday I’ve already crossed the 17,000 mark, and am now approaching a major milestone — that of 4,000 followers. And, as tweeted yesterday I’ve decided to put together a contest around it.
The idea is simple: guess the date and time when I’m gonna reach 4,000 Twitter followers — get the prize.
Here are the full rules:
Conditions: Through the “Comments” area below attempt to guess the date and time, ensuring your time is listed in EST (i.e. GMT – 4:00)
Deadline: 12:00 pm EST on October 25, 2011
Prize: Autographed copy of any one of my 3 books.
Restrictions: No more than 2 guesses per participant. Will ship within U.S. only. Rest of the world – electronic copy.
Now, since with tools like TwitterCounter, it is fairly easy to pinpoint the date, it is essential that you list the time to participate. The person whose guess ends up being closest to the reality, will win.

Thanks, Jason. Guesses accepted. 🙂 I especially love the first one.

10.27.11 @ 1pm EST
-10/20/11 @ 1pm EST
-10/21/11 @ 5am EST

Congratulations!! You are the winner!
As is obvious from http://twitpic.com/75b59z it has happened on 10/24/2011 at 4:45 pm EST. You were just 15 min off, but closer than anyone else.
Congratulations again! Look for an email from me in the next few minutes.
PS: Let not the time of this comment confuse you. It’s CST (in comments time)
10/20/11 1200 EST
10/25/11 1200 EST
fingers crossed 🙂
Thank you for your guesses, folks. Looking forward to having more people enter the contest.
4,000 mark milestone will be reached after the contest ends (regrettably).
Guess 1. 5pm, 11/7/2011
Guess 2. 3pm, 11/25/2011
Why “regrettably”? The deadline is not for the milestone (or the winner qualification), but for the guess(es) submission.
#1 – 10/26/2011, 5pm est
#2 – 10/28/2011, 3pm est
Thanks for the congratulations, and for entering the contest, Trevor.
4,000 milestone will be reached:
10/22/11 @ 7 a.m. est
10/23/11 @ 3:30 p.m. est
Guesses accepted. 🙂
Looking forward to more entries.
