Those who tweet after the first 10,000 tweets will be sent a commiseration message. Both the congratulations and commiseration message will be visible only to the individual who tweeted via the Messages section on Twitter. The entrants must be following @McVities on Twitter to receive the message. Users may enter as many times as they wish but each twitter handle is only eligible to successfully claim the prize once. 7.
