  2. is giving away $500 a week - #ncrocks
You can add any other messsages to the tweet, but it must include the required elements somewhere in the tweet to qualify.

How is the winner chosen?

If no one tweets the message with the required elements after 7 hours, the LAST person who tweeted wins!

To sweeten the deal, we are giving away $500 per week for eight weeks. Winner will be chosen at random from the qualifying tweets during that week. So, if your chances at $5000 might feel far away, you still have a chance to win a substantial cash prize from Namecheap! (Completed)
