Twitter: never has the Internet seen so much controversy. Well, not since this morning at about 8:43 a.m., actually.
Whether you think Twitter is a pile of uselessness, or you virtually live and breathe in 140-character form, High Gear Media is all over Twitter. It's true: our core sites all have Twitter accounts and you might be following them now.
If you are--or if you're ready to start following us--you're in luck. This week and next, we're giving away a solar backpack emblazoned with 2010 Toyota Prius logos. It'll sit on the beach and charge your phone while you get sun and sand, or just on your desk while you cadge free recharges from your office desk lamp. It's cool.
Here's how you can win. First, go on your Twitter account and follow us on all our main accounts: carconnection and greencarreports and allaboutprius. Then, tell us why the new Prius is so great, or so awful--and do it as a Tweet. Here's the format: @carconnection #solarbackpack (your review here) or @greencarreports #solarbackpack (your review here) or @allaboutprius #solarbackpack (your review here). You can Tweet your review to any of these accounts; it'll show up on our Twitter feeds, so check your Following list to see it live.
You have 140 characters total. Make us laugh. Do it as haiku. Parody the entire notion of Twitter if you like. Sum up Schopenhauer and use "Prius" instead of "Schopenhauer." Do whatever you have to do for attention. The best review, as judged by our panel of experts, wins the Prius backpack and some other schwag from the recent round of press drives.
The contest runs for one week. Remember, to win you MUST be a follower of carconnection and greencarreports and allaboutprius. And, for us to actually find your entry, you MUST use the word "Prius" in the Twitter review. Rotsa ruck!
