Some of us have noticed that the tweets recognizing our votes don’t always show up. Thanks to Darin Grimm for doing a bit of looking into it. His finding? The results should be logging as long as you get the thank you screen on the mashable site. Don’t worry about the tweet — you can create your own anyway!
What’s happening? Darin explains that Twitter has implemented a system where it will not display “duplicate” tweets – defined as same text in a 24 hr period. It’s being done to reduce spam. Mashable resets at midnight but twitter is any 24 hour period. He gave me the example of voting one day at 6:55 am and the next morning logging in a bit earlier. Based on the twitter rule, his second vote did not show up, but the open web awards site gave him a thanks for voting.
I’m one of those folks who accidentally tried to vote twice one day and mashable told me, so keep getting your daily vote on! This is a viral campaign so we need to keep up the momentum we’ve started! Thanks to all of you who are voting daily — keep encouraging friends on twitter, Facebook, etc to log in and help us get Michele, agchat & foodchat some well-deserved attention!
