“WOW! I want in! How can I enter?” (That’s what he said)

You can enter three different ways.

  1. Buy That’s What She Tweets merchandise and tweet pictures of yourself wearing/sporting the merchandise. You can enter this way once every 24 hours for each piece of merchandise that you purchase. However each photo must be different to count as separate entries, and each tweet must contain:
    1. @TWSTweets
    2. #TWSTContest.
    3. A link to your photo

    You must also be following us.
    Example: “Check out my AWESOME @TWSTweets Stuff! #TWSTContest PHOTOLINKHERE”

  2. Vote for jokes on our website. You can do this as many times as you want! You will receive one entry for every 20 jokes that you vote for. Currently we have 1,291 jokes. If you do the math, that means you can get almost 65 entries just for voting for every joke currently on the site. So register for an account and start voting!
  3. RT any of our tweets and add #TWSTContest to it. Any links that we have in the tweet must remain. You can receive up to 2 entries per 24 hours this way. You must also be following us.

So there you have it! 3 simple ways to win. Just remember the rules, and get going! The contest will end at 12:00AM EST on March 1, 2010. We will then decide the winners, and announce them both by Twitter and e-mail (if you are a registered user). So get goin’ and good luck!

*WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DISQUALIFY ANYONE AT ANYTIME IF WE DEEM THEM AS TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CONTEST BY REGISTERING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS, OR ACTS IN A SPAMMY FRAUDULENT WAY. PLAY BY THE RULES SO THAT IT IS FUN AND FAIR FOR ALL*

New Best / Worst Rated Section

Posted: February 1st, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: New Features | No Comments »

So we recently unveiled our newest feature on That’s What She Tweets: the ability to see the best and worst rated jokes for a certain time period.

By clicking on the best jokes link in the navigation, you can see the best jokes from today, yesterday, this week, last week, this month, and all time. The same goes for the worst jokes as well. This will let you see what jokes deserve to be noticed, and help to weed out the ones that are not really what she said.

So make sure you vote for all of your favorite jokes!


Gain Followers Through Twitter Friends

Posted: November 30th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Twitter Friends is a website which uses a credit system in order to gain you followers. We have been using it the last week or so and it seems to be doing as it claims.

The credit system is very similar to a video game you would deposit quarters in, although a little bit different. You offer a certain number of credits to people who follow you. They follow you and gain those credits from you, and they can in turn offer them to people who follow them. Credits are also available for purchase.

The thing that we like the most about it is that there are no annoying auto tweets to your account blogging about itself. If you choose to tweet about them, you can gain credits for referrals.

We have yet to figure out a way to see if the followers we get from twitter friends are actually clicking our links and reading our tweets, but we will continue to try and come up with a way.

So check it out, www.twitterfriends.org

Recent Hosting Issues Resolved

Posted: November 16th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Consistancy Issues, Errors, Site Downtime | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

Recently, we have been experiencing issues with extremely  slow load times, and scripts not being able to finish running because of server issues. This was due to some updates that Dreamhost had performed.

The issues were not allowing us to run certain scripts that run at a predetermined time increment. These scripts make sure that everyone’s joke counts are accurate, each individual joke’s vote counts are accurate and they also update the overall ratings for each joke. So over the last week and a half our joke counts and ratings may not have been completely 100% accurate.

We are located on the “Homie Cluster” on Dreamhost’s servers. The issues all started last Monday night when we suffered a mySQL outage during which we were down for almost an hour exactly. More on this issue on Dreamhost’s Status Blog.

The issues then continued when they began moving the mySQL machines over. I don’t believe that the site was down more than 10 minutes for this move. More information can be found here.

The issues continued more with networking issues at 8am November 13th, and 11am November 13th.

This morning, we yet again experienced issues.

We are experiencing packet loss on multiple machine. As a result, this is causing a lag when attempting to access your site. Our admins are currently working towards resolving the issue.

However Dreamhost is claiming that they have finally fixed the issue.

The swtich to our core router was oversaturated. Our administration team has added 2GB to the switch. We will continue to monitor the network.

While our patience has grown thin with Dreamhost, we have had much good experiences with them in the past. We hope that they keep these issues from re-arising, so that you can get your “That’s what she said” joke fix from the BEST that’s what she said joke site on the Internet.


New URL Structure

Posted: October 17th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: New Features, Upgrades | No Comments »

Linking to your joke page just got a whole lot easier!

Today we implemented a new website page structure. The website used to operate on complex, dynamic URLs that are quite ugly, and not very user friendly. They are also not very good for search engine optimization purposes.

An example of what a user page USED to look like:

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/?userID=1&username=desrosj

Here is what the user pages look like now:

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/users/desrosj/

As you can see, much easier to remember, and most importantly, more user friendly for you, the user!

It is also easier to access jokes via the new link structure.

This is an old joke link:

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/?userID=1&jokeID=1

This is what a joke link looks like now:

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/users/desrosj/jokes/1/

And of course, accessing other pages in our website are much easier as well. Ex.:

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/about/

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/submit/

http://www.thatswhatshetweets.com/contact/

I think you get the picture. We hope that this makes linking to your page a whole lot easier.
