Twitter contest settings & filters
You can use the following settings in the Twitter Picker to add extra entries or to exclude users from your contest. The spam filters are used to prevent fake accounts and bots being chosen in your giveaway.
Minimum number of followers
You can add a minimum number of followers that a Twitter account should have. Accounts with fewer followers than this number will be excluded from the giveaway. By default, the value is 0, which means all accounts will be included. This filter is created to prevent users to create multiple accounts to win the contest.
