Webkinz Insider Members Have Questions About Twitter
Following the announcement by Ganz on Twitter that they had awarded three Sparkling Pegasus pets to Webkinz fans, we have been getting a TON of questions here on Webkinz Insider about the new pet and about Twitter itself. Here are answers to the top three questions:
- How do I sign up for a chance to win a Sparkling Pegasus?
At this point, we don't have an answer for this question. Ganz announced that they had awarded three of these exclusive pets to "fans", but didn't specify if those fans were Twitter followers or Webkinz World players. Until we hear from one of the winners, or until Ganz makes an announcement, there isn't any way to know.
UPDATE: Thank you to Webkinz Insider member SnowCrystal for sharing the following direct message she received from Webkinz with us: "They were sent through Twitter direct messages. We'll give future ones out through Webkinz Newz contests, and maybe even KinzPost."
- How do I sign up on Twitter? It's easy. You just need to go to http://twitter.com/ and create a profile. Just like with any other website, internet safety on Twitter can be a concern. Anyone who creates a Twitter profile should be very careful about posting personal information. Children should check with their parents before signing up for Twitter or any other social-networking site. If you are under the age of 13, you are NOT eligible to sign up for a Twitter account.
- How can I send Ganz a message on Twitter? Once you've signed up for Twitter, go to your "home" page and type a message. The message must be no more than 140 characters and start with @webkinz. As long as you include @webkinz in the message, the employees who monitor the Webkinz Twitter account will be able see what you have to say. Remember, Twitter is a PUBLIC forum, so everyone on the internet can also read your message.
