HashAwards - Twitter Awards Platform
We’re launching this week and new Social Media tool to help businesses run promotions on Twitter. HashAwards allows any company to create and manage their own awards. Ever thought about creating your own ShortyAwards, Mashable Awards, the Oscars?
HashAwards uses Twitter to get nominations for your Awards. The top X nominees go to the second phase of the promotion where users can vote.

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!
Create Coupons Online w/ TwtQpon
We just added a new type of online coupons to our platform. Besides Percentage Coupons, where you offer a % off the next purchase and Money Coupons, where you offer a $ amount off, we now let you offer a Free Product Coupons with the purchase of another product.
TwtQpon is fully integrated with Twitter and guarantees that your coupons will be shared on Twitter by making it a requirement to tweet in order to claim the coupons. Coupons can be used online or in-store, it depends on how you set it up.
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.
Why do people think that they can make millions $$ with somebody else’s startup and that the people working on it are a bunch of morons who don’t know what they’re doing?”
We noticed today that we were approaching the 10,000 followers mark, so we tweet’ed it out.
We’re 3 followers away from 10,000 #yay (don’t unfollow us. Tell somebody to follow us)— Twtpoll (@twtpoll) April 3, 2012
A few minutes later somebody pointed out that she was our 10,000th follower. And we couldn’t let that moment go unnoticed…
So we gave @CarysMeredith an unlimited access to Twtpoll. Welcome to the family :)
