Netfirms Twitter Contest

I'm always entering contests trying to win stuff. Here's something I've seen several times today on twitter:
Win a #free iPod Touch or Macbook from the @Netfirms #contest. Domain registration services via Twitter
It couldn't be easier, tweet to be entered into the Netfirms contest. You can tweet once per day to enter. Another way to enter is to register a domain via twitter. Didn't know you could register a domain through twitter? Neither did I, but with Netfirms now you can.

It takes some set up first. You have to register for a free Netfirms account and add your twitter information to your Netfirms control panel, and then you're good to go. You can register a domain from anywhere you can access twitter, even from your phone if you've got it set up, as this video shows:

So, when you're surfing the web or out on the town, and you suddenly think of the perfect domain name, you can register it right then and there. Simply send a DM to @Netfirms with the following: reg (replace with the domain you wish to register. If that domain is available, they'll send you a confirmation of the registration, for the low price of $7.95. And for every domain you register, you get an entry into the contest.

The Netfirms contest ends October 7, and you can tweet once per day.
