And here's why.
The extra giveaway entries. I couldn't care less about every other Twitter aspect. An extension of Facebook statuses? Pass, and that's what I've been saying for years. But when I come across these blog giveaways for gift certificates, personalized jewelry, catchy wall art, and—yes, I know—Silhouettes, I think, Hey, I'd love to win that. So when these giveaway sponsors say you can have an extra entry for following someone on Twitter or by tweeting (I really hate that term) about a giveaway, now I can enter two more times.
It's all about increasing my chances of winning, people.
And I don't plan on giving out my Twitter information, because frankly, I don't think any of us care about that.
I just want one extra shot at winning that Silhouette.
