What is Twitter Comment Picker?
Twitter Comment Picker is a free tool to select a winner for your Twitter giveaway, contest, promotion or competition. We support currently 2 types of Twitter contests, retweet to win or follow to win. We will get all your Twitter followers or retweets on a Tweet and select a random Twitter.
You can select different settings to filter SPAM accounts from joining your giveaway or contest. You could exclude users based on account age, follower count or by username. It's also possible to give users more change to win, by adding their username to the extra entries.
You need to login with your Twitter account and authorize our app read permission to your account. We are only using this permission to get followers and retweets. We can't post anything to your personal account. Make sure you are logged in with the correct Twitter user if you have multiple Twitter accounts.
The Retweet Picker is currently limited to a maximum of 100 retweets. Twitted announced that they will increase this limit in their new API, but didn't give any timeline yet. Until then, you can only draw a winner from the last 100 retweets.
This tool is NOT developed, sponsored, promoted or endorsed by Twitter, Inc.
About the Twitter settings
You can change the following settings to add extra entries or exclude users from your contest.
Minimum number of followers
You can add a minimum number of followers that a Twitter account should have. Accounts with less followers then 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.

You can set restriction on the minimum account age by entering a number of days. Accounts that don't exist for this number of days will be excluded from the contest. 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.
