We now have an optimized version for our OneKontest mobile users. The main action they want to take when accessing your contest on their mobile phones is to enter your contest. So, we have removed everything else from the mobile: Facebook comments, list recent entries, photos and main description about the contest.
If the user wants to see the full site, they can simply choose to load the entire page.
OneKontest Launches Photo Contests
OneKontest has added another type of contest to its Twitter contest platform. Here are the different types of contests you can already create with OneKontest:
- #Hashtag Contest - users must tweet a hashtag
- Tweet + Follow Contest - users must tweet a hashtag and follow an account
- Trivia Contest - users must answer a trivia question correctly
- Feedback Contest - users must answer a feedback question
- Photo Contest - users must tweet a photo using a photo sharing app (twitpic, yfrog, pic.twitter, instagram) or upload their own photo. (See sample)
Your contest page will look similar to any other contest page. And as photos are tweet’ed, they display in a photo gallery. For the Photo Contest type, you have the option to have the winners being selected at random by us or to choose them yourself.
As always, let us know what you think!

Twtvite Small Updates
We have made a couple of small changes to the layout of your events @ Twtvite.
First: We have the most important information about your event front and center: When + Where. We have also added the ability for you to add your logo to the header of your groups or events.
Second: We created an Event #hashtag page where you can follow who’s talking about your event in real-time. To get to it, simply click on the #hashtag in your event page or go to: Tools > Live Feed (if you’re logged in across the top of your event page)
Hope you enjoy those small changes!

Can you guess the two times they’ve used OneKontest based on their number of followers over time? :)
Twitter Robot Accounts Done Right!
Twitter bot accounts can be very annoying: auto-replies, auto-RTs, etc. But we have been using Twitter to send useful information to people using Twtvite. Meet our bot-team:
@TwtAlert - Sends quick reminders about an event you’ve RSVP’ed: one week and one day before the event.
@TwtviteBot - Sends quick daily updates to event organisers about how many new RSVPs their event got in the past 24 hours.
@TwtviteSurvey - Twtvite automatically creates a TwtSurvey and sends it to all of your attendees 10 hours after the event.
