Unclutterer giving away two Wi-Fi Amazon Kindles

Unclutterer readers are the most amazing readers on the internet — at least in our (unabashedly biased) opinions. As a result, those of us on the Unclutterer staff will be purchasing two of the latest generation Wi-Fi Amazon Kindles to give away to two of our lucky readers.

Books can take up a lot of storage space in our homes and offices, and having a digital e-book reader certainly helps keep bookshelves from lining every inch of our spaces. The two units we’re giving away are the latest generation Kindle Wireless Reading Device, which are Wi-Fi only, with a 6″ display, in Graphite. It’s the same device I have and love with a passion. (I especially appreciate that I can read silly mystery novels and no one else is the wiser.)

How to enter to win: Entering to win is simple. All you need to do is follow us on Twitter. If you aren’t already on Twitter, create an account and then follow us @Unclutterer.

Next Tuesday and Thursday (October 26 and 28, 2010) at 10:00 a.m. EDT, I will use twitRand() the Random Integer Generator at random.org and select that day’s one winner. You only need to follow us once (and please, only once), to participate in the giveaway. If you already follow us on Twitter, then you are already participating and need not do anything more. Winners of the giveaway will have 24 hours to respond to a direct message from @Unclutterer to claim their new Kindle. Failure to respond within 24 hours will disqualify you from the giveaway.

I know that some of you aren’t interested in social media and will want to complain about having to sign up for Twitter to participate in the giveaway — however, this is the easiest way for us to manage the giveaway and it ensures that many of our readers are already entered to win with no additional effort on their part. Also, if you’re an avid Wired magazine reader, you know that social networking sites can help increase worker productivity if used efficiently.

I am so exited about this reader appreciation event and cannot wait to give away two Kindle Wireless Reading Devices. Remember, you have until 10:00 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, to follow us on Twitter for the first Kindle giveaway.

NOTE: twitRand() appears to be offline, so we’ve had to change the manner by which the winners will be randomly selected.

    But if I follow you on Twitter, it creates clutter in my Twitter feed, since I already follow your (more useful) RSS feed in Google Reader.

    Sorta joking here, but sorta serious too — social networking clutter is a real problem for me, since a lot of people pipe in their feeds to their various facebook, twitter, etc. accounts, but then add original content too, which makes it hard to just ‘unfollow’.

    I follow you on Twitter, but my Tweets are set to private. Will you still be able to message me? If not, send me a follow request and I’ll add you as a follower. I rarely tweet so not much Twitter clutter for me (I joined Twitter to follow a couple of my friends, not to post info myself).

    Am already following! Fingers crossed.

    Love this giveaway! I have a Kindle and LOVE LOVE LOVE it for reading! I subscribe to a blog for .99 cents a month that has free books listed constantly. But, now my 11 year old son has started reading on it too and wants one for Christmas. Having the kindle is a huge help in decluttering — no matter how many books I’m reading at once, they are all contained in one small device.

    PICK ME!!! πŸ™‚

    @Vanessa — If I remember correctly, two of our Fujitsu ScanSnap winners had private accounts. We just sent a request to follow them and after they accepted us we notified them they had won. Not a big deal at all if you have a private account.

    Does anybody know – if I sign up on Twitter then can I unsign up? Facebook is terrible about this so I wonder if Twitter is just as bad.

    Your right, social media clutter is a big problem. Following for a contest is at least a reason for doing the following. And if the people you follow don’t live up to your expectations, you can always unfollow. You can also monitor lists and not rely on your home twitter feed.
    I would recommend using the follow as a way to reciprocate to people you want to connect with and want to follow you back. Create lists that are important to you and follow those lists. Also using search and tools like tweetdeck and hootsuite can cut through the clutter.
    But I agree, just following indiscriminately is not the way to go. Know who your following and why your following them.

    What a great prize. However, part of keeping my life uncluttered is staying off / away from all social sites. So unfortuantly, there is no way for people like me to enter the contest. Bummer.

    Morning! I am following you. Nice to met you. very excited about your giveaway. I have been considering getting a kindle for my 7th grader for Xmas. He’s such a voracious reader, on a college level no less. It’s hard to keep up with him with books. Especially books appropriate for both his age and his level of comprehension.
