Want to get a free full 3-day registration to the PASS Summit 2011 in Seattle, WA from Oct 11-14, 2011? Well, a tweet reply of 130 characters or less (on Twitter) is all it might take to win! We will post a question on our official Twitter account (@SQLServer) at 9:00 a.m. PT on September 21, 2011 and will take responses to our question until 9:00 p.m. PT on Friday, September 23, 2011. Any answers submitted after that time will be disqualified. Your reply to our question should be no longer than 130 characters including the #sqlpass hashtag in the character count. Why only 130 characters you might ask? Well, we want to re-tweet your answer! Your answer can be very short or you can use up the 130 character limit. A panel of three members of the SQL Server Team at Microsoft will evaluate all answers to the question received during the Entry Period and judge the responses based on pure creativity. There is no right or wrong answer to this and you don’t have to be first as you can submit anytime during the Entry Period. You can only submit one response to the question, so take your time and make it a good one. If you submit more than one, you will be disqualified, including your first response.
