twitRand Helps You Randomly Choose A Twitter Contest Winner

A quick Twitter Tool announcement – Let us know if you use it, and what you think!

Ever get tired of having to pick a winner for a Twitter contest that you just hosted? Well now there’s a tool that does it for you! twitRand is a very simple twitter tool that picks random Twitter users out of specifics that you provide. If you had your contestants tweet a phrase, hashtag or just had a contest that included all your followers, just enter the phrase into the twitRand search box and let it do the work.

This can be really helpful if many of your contestants get that “sore loser” mentality because they lost, now you can prove to them with twitRand that everything was fair and square. twitRand even gives you a link that outlines the exact time, date and the winner of the contest.

So if your ever in need of some help in choosing a contest winner besides the old shut your eyes and hope you land on your screen tactic, check out twitRand!

    now this looks like something worth trying if you giveaway prizes or run contests; I wished I could have developed such tool to attract all the traffic out there and turn it into more profit :)

    I’ve used Twitrand before and it works really well! Definitely recommend. The only thing I would suggest which should be blatantly obvious, but have an easy way to track all the entries such as a hashtag or a specific link.
