Google Wave has been a top ten trending topic on Twitter for weeks now and gets thousands and thousands of mentions each and every day. Google originally limited the preview release of Wave to just 100,000 users, and while over a million people are using the service now, access to Google Wave remains invite-only.
Demand for the invites is so high that several less-than-scrupulous individuals have even started to sell them on eBay.
Here’s the good news – I have 15 Google Wave invitations to give away to Twittercism readers! All you have to do is enter my competition, and it’s really, really easy.
What Is Google Wave?
If you’re not sure what Google Wave is or whether it’s something you’d be interested in, take a look at this video.
It’s very simple – just retweet or link to this blog post, making sure you include the #Twittercism tag within your tweet and a link back to the article.
Or copy and paste this into your favourite Twitter client:
15 Google Wave Invitations Must Be Won By #Twittercism Readers. http://bit.ly/7YTLoa
Once you’ve done this, each time you use the #Twittercism tag again – in any tweet or link back to any post in this blog – you will gain another entry in the competition.
There are no limits as to how many times you can enter. The more you do, the better chance you have of winning. So go crazy!
This competition will finish at midnight on Wednesday, December 2, 2009.
(It’s lasting just five days so entries don’t drop off from Twitter search.)
The Small Print
On Saturday, December 5, I will use Kosmix Lucky Twit, Tweetaways or a similar tool to randomly select fifteen winners from all of those who entered the competition, searching for mentions of #Twittercism. You can only win once.
Winners will be announced in a separate blog post, and notified via email. I will obviously need your email address to invite you to Google Wave – we’ll communicate via Twitter. Google Wave requires that you have a valid Google account.
Note that once your invitation has been sent out by me, it’s totally up to Google in terms of when it actually arrives. It isn’t instant, and is actioned on a per user basis. I have no control over this whatsoever.
