Update on August 13th, 2009 at 11:42 PST: Don’t worry if your tweet entry doesn’t show up in the reactions list below the comments. I wrote a script that automatically collects every tweet submission neatly into a table, weeding out multiple tweets and such. Just make sure the URL we gave (http://bit.ly/ppsw) appears somewhere in the tweet. This is what we search for to collect the entries. If you included it, we got your entry.
