Twitter users can win an iPad and get all of its industry-changing e-book goodness by entering the McCormick Foundation's #1amend Contest. If you don't use Twitter the rest of this will make no sense, so by all means stop reading. But if you are friends with the Fail Whale, here's how to enter:
- Find news stories online that deal with the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment (that's freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, and freedom to petition the government, in case you fell asleep in civics class.)
- Post the link on Twitter with the #1amend hashtag.
- Make it awesome, because the tweet that earns the most retweets will win a shiny, sexy present from Cupertino.
The contest is supposed to be open only to those living in the Chicago area, so I guess all of you still tweeting from Tehran are out. More details on the McCormick Freedom Project here.
