World Cup Twitter Competition - Tweet to Win

by Lynnette Nolan | Jun 10, 2010

It may have escaped your notice, but the FIFA World Cup is almost upon us. We're big fans here at Carbonite, especially of the goal keepers. Why is this? Because we're both all about saving. Goal keepers save shots on goal, we save people's data.

During World Cup, we're running a Twitter competition asking you to guess how many goals will be saved during selected World Cup matches. One lucky winner will win a brand new 16GB Wifi iPad, worth $629 (£429.00), and 12 entrants will win a full year subscription to Carbonite, worth $54.95 (£41.95) each.

To enter all you need to do is watch out for World Cup tweets from @carbonite and RT with your guess of the number of saves for each match. For example, when you see this tweet:

  • World Cup competition: Round One England vs USA [how many shots saved?] RT for chance to win an iPad and Carbonite online backup #WC2010

You need to retweet with:

  • RT @carbonite World Cup competition: Round One England vs USA [3 saves] RT for chance to win an iPad and Carbonite online backup #WC2010

As soon as you tweet, you'll be entered into the competition. You can tweet a guess for as many matches as you like, but only one guess per match per user will be counted. Winners will be selected at random from entries with correct guesses. Any guesses after kick-off will not count.

We'll be running the competition on the below matches. Keep an eye for our tweets before each match and make sure you enter!
