Twitter contests and tweetaways are more popular than ever before, with brands and bloggers auctioning off everything from tickets to hotel stays to their Twitter followers.
We’ve written before about some of the most extreme Twitter giveaways: back in June, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez gave away a house to his three millionth Twitter follower, and in April William Shatner treated his millionth follower to dinner in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Actor Anthony Anderson is giving away goodies to his new followers on Twitter. Perhaps best known for his roles in Hustle and Flow and as a recurring detective on Law & Order, Anderson is looking to boost his profile through a couple of big ticket giveaways. But while an incentive is a great way to grow your follower count quickly, I’d be wary of following in Anderson’s footsteps unless you can keep your new followers engaged after the prizes have been doled out.
