As a lot of us know, Time To Play has a twitter #live contest on Wednesdays and also a TV show on Fridays. The #timetoplaylive is at 1pm on Wednesday and the object is to be the first answer to the questions they tweet out. There are normally nine prizes and then a grand prize. On the Friday TV show they show you new toys and also do giveaways. Giveaways are sometimes random and also first answer. Well there has been some complaining and controversy(as there always is it seems) so TTP has since changed their rules for winning... Here are the new rules

Twitter has finally started to enforce their policies regarding spam and contests. They have a set of rules that are set forth in their TOS that you must click OK to when you sign up for an account. There are also rules that limit the number of accounts one can have.. such as one main account, a jail account, and then a business account if you have a business or blog. Even though these rules are pretty much set in stone people continuously violate them day in and day out. They create multiple accounts in an attempt to win contests, they create new accounts once their's is suspended, and they even pretend to be a whole other person in an attempt to... wait for it.. WIN. Winning is not everything, winning on twitter is about relationships.. creating a relationship with companies, supporting their products, brands, and/or names. Companies are just being kind giving stuff away, but again it all boils down to following the rules.
