What is Twitter Comment Picker?

Twitter Comment Picker or Retweet Picker is a free tool to select a winner for your Twitter giveaway, contest, promotion or competition. We support currently 4 types of Twitter contests, retweet to win, like to win or follow to win.

The tool will get all Twitter followers, retweets or likes of a Tweet using the official Twitter API and select a random Twitter account as winner of your giveaway or contest.

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 chance 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 as the correct Twitter user, if you have multiple Twitter accounts.

We are happy to announce that the Retweet Picker has no limits for retweets anymore.

This tool is NOT developed, sponsored, promoted or endorsed by Twitter, Inc.
