Countdown to iPhone 5S contest: Follow @iMore and retweet for your chance to win $500!


I didn't know how to add the hashtag on a retweet. I just hit the retweet button and it, well, retweeted. I guess I'm a twitter failure! :(

But that won't include the hashtag as required, because the original tweet does not contain the hashtag... and, the latest version of Twitter's own iOS app does not give one an opportunity to edit or add to the retweet. It just got updated today... itself does not have a "quote tweet" option. If it exists, please, someone point me in that direction.

I don't tweet yet. But I do like cell phones. So I would like to win this contest. Plus I hope the new iPhone has a 6.2" screen.

I hope they add other ways to win soon, I don't use life isn't interesting enough to use social networking sites. Just posting a comment is huge for me :)

I copied and pasted from the article. Not a true retweet, since there is no tweet from iMore with the link in it. Hope that counts.

I'm a liar. There is a tweet from iMore, but it's several hours older than this article, so I never looked that far back.
