Twitter Contest?

I got the email about the Twitter contest, but when I follow the directions and then try to submit the tweet to Twitter, I get a message saying "User is over daily status update limit". But I haven't even been on Twitter yet this morning! Anyone else have this problem?

I just tweeted it. It went through, but I was not able to add anything to it. I tried adding my pixel link to facemasks, but it would not allow me to. It is directing those who click on it directly to FAA facemasks.

Do you mean the affiliate links contest? I use Buffer to tweet and it works perfect.

Hmmm, so weird! Not sure why I'm having this problem!! DK Digital, no, not the affiliate links contest. There's a Twitter contest that's only for today.

Okay, I was able to just copy one of the contest tweets that FAA composes for us, with my special numbers, and then I went to Twitter and pasted it....and that worked! Thank you for weighing in!!! :)))

 

Laurie Search

Oh, I'm glad to hear that it's not just me, Debbie, though I am sorry you're having a problem!! Do what I just did....Just copy the message and then go to Twitter and paste it into a tweet!

I guess I didn't get invited to the Twitter contest, that's okay I would have lost anyway. lol

Meh, I did not get that invite either. It's a face mask promotion. Search #f16 on Twitter and you'll see plenty Tweets. Let's hope it'll do some good collectively, just like face masks.

I have been participating in the contest, and have currently 18 retweets, but the Reetweet leaderboard still is stuck at 3 for me.

For anyone who took part in the last one will know, and here it is for new people to our Twitter contests, the tweets here are updated every so often, not immediately, so it can take time to catch up

If anyone would care to RT me, I will return the favor, thanks

I'm confused...what's new....is this something different then the Affiliates Link contest?

 

Rebecca Wang

21 Days Ago

Abbie, it has been 10 hours and my numbers are not updating at all. I am still stuck at 3 retweets on the Retweet leaderboard. I surpassed 3 retweets about 30 minutes into the contest, so my numbers have not updated in almost 10 hours. Please look into this. I am now at 34 retweets. Thank you. https://twitter.com/rebeccawangart/status/1285982020074721280

Rose yes it is a new contest on Twitter to advertise FAA face masks, I also didn't get notification about it, I just knew because a friend from here sent me a message yesterday evening in private about it if I know...

You can find it here:

https://fineartamerica.com/twittercontest.html?contestid=26

Laurie if you can edit yet your starting post, you could add the link please for members to find it where it is to join.

Rebecca it is very strange your numbers stuck, I hope someone will look into this.

Thank you Abbie. I just checked this morning and I have 53 retweets: https://twitter.com/rebeccawangart/status/1285982020074721280

 

Ah-ha. I just now got on board with this. I was out most of yesterday and thought it was to late to become involved.

If anyone could use a RT - let me know.

My twitter is: https://twitter.com/Beachy - the contest tweet it the "pinned" tweet at the top.

Good luck to all.

Thanks, Dora....wondering when this started, and also the Affiliate Contest...that only runs till the end of July, which is in a week....not sure how I don't learn about these things. Oh well!

The tracking worked until 3 pm FI time. Greatly. Then stopped. I have 89 RTs but FAA shows 43. For 3 hrs. Jammed system.

Hope the final tracking is fair and great :) I did get my 50 in time. So hoping for reward :)

Johanna, from previous experience and according to the twitter contest post, it has to be 50 different people that RT'd your tweet to win, don't know if that is what you have or not, just for info

"has anyone gotten thier code"

yes I got mine and have purchased some of my greeting cards to use as samples and gifts.

 

@ Joan - "Bill, the avatar of BurnaRukundo is one of the 5 images of Rukundo Epa. On their profiles, they have the same 5 images posted. no information in their bios ('coming soon') other than location Rwanda"

Yes - I saw that but didn't want to dig too deep. On the surface it seems a bit "rigged" - maybe. They all have their discount codes - while some of us had had numbers stuck in place for two weeks. :(

 

Shelli Fitzpatrick

Yeah, that seems to me to be one person with two Twitter accounts. I guess technically it wasn't against the rules? where are the rules anyway?

 

Joan Carroll

thanks everyone! I thought when the codes would be send when things got unstuck but I guess not! I have written to request mine.

 

Dora Hathazi Mendes

Joan, but you are green, so even some greens haven't got it? Now that is even more strange.
Did you check your Twitter DM? We got it through there, not here, or not in email.

( I haven't spent it yet, I need to wait some days to use it, to be sure I am at home when anything arrives. Hopefully validity is long because nobody confirmed that...

 

Joan Carroll

thanks Dora, it IS there. I never thought to look there.:-)

Thank you Bill Swartwout Photography, I think I will buy with the code. Is too hot in here to ask questions :)

Hope everyone gets their codes. I have always received mine 2019 - 2020. I don't even stress for it. Just be patient, I think I got mine earlier because I was second to hit 50 rts

I noticed the use of bots on the contest too, since I never heard of a few of the winners, I went to check out their Faa profiles and also Twitter (just my curiosity) and they appear to be more bots than real people.
Said this, I sent the screenshot to Faa on the Twitter DM to prove the 50 retweets, they didn't even read it yet. 🤔

I got an email from Abbie:
Please contact the Twitter team

Replied this is not a good reply. Twitter ream? Where? Why?

I have got 50+ RT as posted above. And would like to receive promised prize. It said we get it the next day. Not wait for 16 days and receive a 1 sentence unclear message from Abbie.
I guess we wont get what was promised.
Sure is odd behaviour from FAA.

Still no code sent to me either, but I will still check the DM's on Twitter each day.

With all the respect but I am not sure why Johanna should contact twitter team.. what is twitter team? Twitter? This is a contest organized by FAA and not Twitter..
The leaderboard is on FAA and it is not showing correctly the numbers, but the participants mentioned below also made the requested job, advertised to their twitter followers the bestseller facemasks of FAA during several days... (even today as those tweets didn't die they are still out there.
Even if it is a very small team for for faa, in this thread are all the proof, all the screenshots and the links to the tweets of Johanna... just need to have a look at it for someone who held this contest.
As an example Rebecca has 105 rt and on the board she has just few.. even the greens doesn't have the correct numbers, I have more 20something what it was counted.. the thing got blocked but they did the job the same way as the greens..
What else need for them to get the prize?

Mike, all the greens got the prize in the same time in Twitter DM, those two members who are selling haven't got it earlier. Who is missing are the ones who completed but because of the failed system their RT-s didn't get counted..

That is not the issue of Twitter, not Twitter promished the 100$ but FAA...

We artists, customer of FAA, and marketing boosters, should not have to contact Twitter team, or anyone else anymore, as we have done the right thing: I have the email of this contest: 50 RTs in 1 day and then the first 25 get the prize. It even says the same day. 1 day contest. Then the prizes. I did my part. FAA did not.

I have my RTs done, and copied them above, so I do not understand that we artists, free marketing boosters, should check why
FAA dont see our RTs. I emailed Abbie, she said she emailed Sean. Then she later said be patient. Then nothing. Now I got an email: contact Twitter team. This is not the right way to do things and communicate.

My RT tweets are copied above. And some others are too. Hope FAA does the right thing. And soon. This has not been handled as promised and many are a bit sad. We dont have time to do the work for FAA. Sure hope someone in FAA sees this and makes the right move, the right thing, and we can move forward and not feel so bad how we are treated. I do not know what more to say. If this does not help, then FAA people just dont care, that is the way I feel and others, who have emailed me and wondered why is this not working, why is FAA not doing what is right.

If this post does not help, I do give up, and perhaps that is what Abbie, Sean or someone wants. If so, ok, you got free marketing from me, I got nothing, not even a nice email. And I sure hope no one gets upset, again, for me speaking the truth. I hope people see this for what it is. And an improvement would be very good to happen.

I contacted the so called "Twitter Faa team" last Thursday, sending a DM on Twitter, I sent the screenshot of the message that reached the 'at least' 50rtws. I then wrote again on Sunday, untill now no one has even read my messages.
The names of the other people who completed the contest are written over, it'd be just nice to be contacted and get a clarification.
Thank you 🙏🏻

Abbie I have sent DM's to @FineArtAmerica on Twitter multiple times and they have not replied at all. I also send e-mails using the Contact Us form on this website, for Technical support. Never got a reply.

Is there another "Twitter Team" I am supposed to be writing to?

 

Abbie Shores

1 Day Ago

Yes, if you think you've not been given something you think you should have been them you need to contact them.

Any money owed is sent via Twitter DM

The 'so called FAA Twitter team' will see your messages but you will have to be patient. I'm not sure who is dealing with them but we do have days off unfortunately.

I'll put the word out people need help

I'm nothing to do with Twitter team or this contest so this is all I can do right now.

Thanks for your patience

Did I send an email to the wrong team? I contact the tech support team through FAA? I don't recall seeing a twitter team.

Jennifer

They will be on Twitter on the FAA account

 

https://www.twitter.com/FineArtAmerica

So from 91k followers they have 29rt-s (on board they have 18) .. . this shows that those who reached the 50rt and more with much less followers, have put effort in this..
