TechCrunch Gives Away iPad 2 as Part of Shameless Social Media Promotion

TechCrunch reminds us how much better they are than everyone.

Want an iPad 2? You could wait for it to ship 2-3 weeks after you wait for a few hours in the absurd Apple Store line(s)- or there's another option! Improve the social media metrics of TechCrunch and you, too, can have a 1 in ~4000 chance to win an iPad 2. It's genius, and impressively formulaic. Get ahold of massively-desired Tech, and offer it at the low, low price of nothing, minus a one-click social media endorsement. Or, I don't know, 2-3 of them.

Just "like" their Facebook Fan Page, Tweet something about an iPad 2 with the #techcrunch hashtag, and if you're feeling especially saucy (Crunchy?), comment on the story. Hopefully something ironically insipid that insults yourself, your dignity, or is self-deprecatingly face-saving, like, "I never do this but" or "I hate social media but".

 

...

 

C'mon, le monde.

 

Either way- with over 3k tweets and counting, it's already a successful campaign (Lasts until March 12th 7:30 PM EST).
