    There has been so may fake companys on twitter that are running tweet contests for Ipads and then make fake accounts and draw the fake accounts as winners to get more followers. I just dont get this.

      I can’t speak for the “fake” companies except to say that many of their “goals” is to acquire thousands of followers.
