We've already given away a few BlackBerry PlayBook IOUs to lucky CrackBerry contest winners, and as we approach the April 19th launch date we're giving our audience yet another chance to win a BlackBerry PlayBook. This time we're going to get fancy and do it up social media style on the twitters.  

HOW TO ENTER: For your chance to win a BlackBerry PlayBook, all you need to do is login to your twitter account, make sure you follow @crackberry, and from there tweet/retweet the following phrase:

Follow @crackberry and RT this message for your chance to win a BlackBerry #PlayBook! http://crackberry.com/win-playbook 

PRIZE: The lucky winner will get a 16GB Wi-Fi BlackBerry PlayBook!

OTHER DETAILS: The contest is open from now until April 19th, 2011. We'll announce the winner the day the PlayBook is released. Entry is open worldwide. Only non-private accounts can participate (need public tweets). We're using a tweet contest service provider to administer the tracking, and the lucky winner will be pulled at random.

That's it. Easy peasy. If you're already on the twitter go ahead and tweet the magic phrase and you're good to go. And if you're not on twitter yet, well, now is the time for you to register (click here to download Twitter for BlackBerry). You'll have beginner's luck on your side. Good luck to everyone, and spread the word!

natepnt

I just retwitted it woot hope to get it.

Jleeblanch

Haha looks like it was a good time to go on break!! Just opened Twitter and noticed the contest!

The magic phrase has been successfully "retweeted" :D

R1cE

Oh please let me win!!

rafa2044

Retweeted already! I gotta win so my wife can scratch her face!! lmao!!

feldmen01

not even a free playbook is reason for me to start using twitter....

mkye86

LOL as much as I really want a PlayBook I feel that same sentiment.. I dont want a twitter account. I refuse to go through the set up just for a an opportunity to win a PlayBook. I would never use it again afterwards..

Who won the Last PB I never saw it announced?

Zizzzzy

I have Zero followers, and this was my first and probably only ever Tweet. I only use it to follow Crackberry news updates, go figure eh?

diegonei

No need to use Twitter guys. Just have the account there and follow @crackberry for the contests ;P. You know, follow on Twitter, Facebook and Youtube one.

SharpieFiend

If you used twitter you could do the following:

Just ate #toast with #cheez whiz - go breakfast!

LOL. Twitter is a symbol of the decline of our society...

HipPo13

Does it matter if my account is protected?????

The_Shawn

Only non-private accounts can participate (need public tweets).

Awesomeness!! Thanks for the contest CB :)

bilmaga

mangcool

Already following CB! And already tweeted! Can't wait for the announcement!

ippyg

Done! :)
Hope this is the contest I win!

ffac789

I already know I'm not going to win haha, but I'll retweet just so others know.

teamfoster03

Another great give away. like other i hope Epsilon is not being used.
RT done :)

gabrimen

Done, set, come Playbook! nice contest guys...

KahneFan

Done... I think... I don't know much about this danfangled Twitter. I would've been all over a FB contest. But I did try.

Kevin Michaluk

Not using Epsilon.... Double checking with service provider in regards to protected tweets.

Kevin Michaluk

If your tweets are private it's a no go.

kpbutton

Done, just waiting for the "you're the winner" tweet. :)

pkalltheway2000

re-tweeted...good luck to myself and everyone!

Demous

Done ;) Count me in ;)

lessdoumas

Done ! Wish me good luck !

oldtimeBBaddict

I am ever the optimist. One winner worldwide? I'd have better luck at the mega millions lottery. Oh well, done and hoping.

sivan

I initially followed CB to be notified of new posts, but eventually unfollowed because of the relentless sweepstakes spam.

No other blog I follow uses Twitter this way.

Kevin Michaluk

That's because I don't consider CrackBerry to be just a "news blog". We are SOOOO much more.  We're an enthusiast site, we're a community, we constantly try to give back to our fans with contests. We also engage on twitter with our crackberry twelpers. It's not just about the straight up latest news.

If you just want the latest news and nothing else, what I could definitely do is set up a separate twitter account that only does tweets from the News & Rumors blog post category of the site. Like that idea?

sivan

That would be great, thanks.

Kevin Michaluk

Cool. We'll get that going. Look for a post/tweet on it once live.

gregorylkelly

That's a good idea, but I never thought you guys "spammed" stuff like this guy is implying. I'll stick to following your normal crackberry account.

BBThemes

gotta agree iv never been spammed by CB (well anyone actually) on twitter. the alternative fast route is to use an RSS reader, social feeds in OS6 or if your not on OS6 then go to appworld and go into the `beta` section and use BlackBerry News Feeds. its another RSS reader mainly for non OS6 users.

worth considering if its a major thing to you

diegonei

True that. RSS for the news, Twitter for everything CB.

Bad Larry

Just followed and retweeted! CrackBerry rules!

forthperson

Just retweeted, I'm in on the contest

loreburne

I take it we can retweet more than once?

omgitsalive

Of course someone who's never heard of CB before and is a die hard apple fanboy who just signed up on twitter recently will win :D ;)

But its part of the game ;) any contender is equal (but the irony if someone wins who posted from 'twitter for ipad' grrrrr! :P)

Good luck to everyone!

theruined

I'd give my soul to satan before I get on twitter again...

NexusAbuser314

Good Luck to Everyone! And thanks CrackBerry.com for another chance to win a free PLAYBOOK!!!!

dephia

Let's ReTweet Now and Get BB Playbook >:D<

StepSoSteady

I hope I win the Blackberry Playbook. I want one so bad:)

kwkid

Stupid Question - if you sign up for the @CrackBerry tweets, does it duplicate the RSS feed? I certainly don't want to get duplicates everyday.

re: Well it looks like it does as I just got a tweet and an RSS feed about the same thing. I prefer Twitter so once I have verified I'll delete the RSS Feed.

Kevin Michaluk

Yep, all blog posts that go out on RSS also go out on twitter.  Twitter might get the odd extra thing do, and we have our twelpers you can also ask stuff too.. so it's more like RSS you can talk to.

Zizzzzy

I am fairly new to Twitter and had been following @Crackberry_News prior to this contest. I am now signed up for the main @Crackberry, is there any advantage to the _News one or could I drop it since everything seems to be posted on the main account...?
