Frequently Asked Questions:
Is this really free?
Yes, Tweetdraw is 100% free, we don’t even make you log in or take your email address. What we would ask though in return is that you share us on social media far and wide!
My hashtag isn’t showing up!
Hashtags have a limited shelf life in Twitter search, and though many will live on through months and years, not all hashtags are retained in Twitter search after a certain period (can be around 7 days). With this in mind, hashtag contests are best done over a matter of a few days to maximise the change that all hashtag entries can be found.
Is there a limit on the number of RTs that can be drawn?
You can now pick a random retweet from the 3200 last retweets. If your results look like they may eventually exceed this amount, you can enter the tweet ID at intervals of up to 3000 retweets to have them recorded or cached in the database before you finally draw your winner at the end of the giveaway.
Can I draw from multiple accounts/Hashtags/Retweets?
No, the service cannot randomly pick from multiples of any of the above. Tweetdraw only works for individual draws.
Can I combine account/Retweet/Hashtag draws?
No, the service cannot randomly pick from combinations of any of the above. The common combination of Follow and RT giveaway draws (i.e. follow this account and Retweet this status) cannot be drawn in conjunction. Tweetdraw only works for individual draws.
Can I use Tweetdraw on mobile?
Have your name and URL changed? Is this permanent?
Yes, our name has changed from Twitterdraw to Tweetdraw and our URL has changed from Twitterdraw.com to Competitionagency.com/tweetdraw. This is a permanent change so be sure to change all bookmarks, reminders, and your brain! The functionality of Tweetdraw works exactly the same as it did before, and there is nothing new to learn.

Disclaimer: Tweetdraw is in no way associated with Twitter. Please note, It is wholly dependant on Twitter’s API, and may be restricted or limited, or unavailable, depending on Twitter’s API infrastructure. It is advised that you familiarise yourself with relevant API limits if there is a possibility of exceeding them with any search or draw (i.e. age or number of Tweets). Due to this reliance on the API, we can make no guarantee as to the nature of results. Caveat utilitor.
