You further understand and agree that Sponsor has the right to post your Submission in accordance with these Official Rules in any media even if you have not been declared a winner in this Promotion and, if Sponsor posts your Submission in any media, it does not mean that you have been selected as a winner in this Promotion.
Sponsor is not responsible for misspellings, missing qualifying elements in a participant’s tweet, typographical errors, or other issues that may affect the ability to locate or record a purported Participation Tweet. Due to the way Twitter operates and allows access under certain conditions, occasionally shadow bans, etc., Hashtag Roundup may not be able to view or record purported Participation Tweets, receive or send communications, or otherwise detect participation from or interact with potential Participants who have their Twitter account settings that make their updates, comments, posts or communications private, protected, or otherwise limited, in which case any such purported Participant will be disqualified and ineligible to enter or receive a Prize.

You can tweet as often as you wish with the Theme but only the first two (2) Submissions will be entered into this Promotion.

Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification. In the event of a dispute as to any Twitter account, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register at twitter.com will be deemed to be the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Each potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
