To make Cb Connect 2018 even more exciting, we’re hosting a Twitter contest to see who can rack up the most engagement on Twitter. If you want to participate, just share your thoughts about Cb Connect 2018 on Twitter by telling us what you’ve learned, which sessions you liked most, who you got to meet, etc. Photos and videos are encouraged, but are not required.

One catch, you must add #CbConnect18 and tag @CarbonBlack_Inc in each Tweet so we can find it. Here are the details:

  • Two $250 gift cards will be rewarded (one for each day of Cb Connect 2018) to people who use the conference hashtag #CbConnect18 and tag @CarbonBlack_Inc in a Tweet. The winner each day will be the person whose Tweet receives the highest level of engagement (calculated based on the combined number of “retweets” and “likes” for a Tweet). The more engagement your Tweets receive, the better your chances are to win.
  • Entries are valid for Tweets published on Wednesday, October 10th, and on Thursday, October 11th. Be sure to Tweet on both days to enter in both giveaways.
  • The winner for each day will be calculated on the following morning, and each winner will receive a $250 gift card.
  • Each winner will need to claim their gift card within one day of being notified, and can do so by sending a direct message via Twitter to @CarbonBlack_Inc on Twitter to exchange all required information.
  • Sorry Carbon Black employees, you’re not eligible to win. Maybe next time!

Full rules and regulations are listed below. We look forward to seeing you at conference and remember, use #CbConnect18 and tag @CarbonBlack_Inc on Twitter to enter!
