The Red Sox sell Babe Ruth. Dylan goes electric. The Muppets take Manhattan. Every now and again an event comes along so monumental, that it shifts the very course of history. It is in this spirit that we announce:

Vlingo Tweet Week 2010 (Cue guitar solo from “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and commence the B-2 bomber flyover.)

All week long, we will be releasing Twitter themed excitement. In part to coincide with the 140 Conference in NYC, in part because we find Twitter and all of our fans who follow us @Vlingo to be generally radical (launch pyrotechnics). To commemorate our First Annual Tweet Week, there will be blog posts, updates from the 140 conference where we will be hanging with our friends from Jabra, and (hooray!) giveaways. To kick off what promises to be a fun week, we present to thee . . .

How Tweet It Is: iPad Giveaway from @Vlingo

Been dying to get an iPad but don’t want to pay for it? Well here is your chance. Just follow these 3 simple rules and you will be entered to win an iPad!

  1. Follow @Vlingo
  2. Tweet: “Vlingo lets me update Twitter using my voice! Follow @Vlingo and RT this message for a chance to win an iPad”
  3. Do so before Friday April 23rd at 5pm ET. That’s when the contest ends – nothing lasts forever, after all.

One lucky @Vlingo fan who tweeted the above message (or something pretty close) will walk away with a brand spankin’ new iPad (crowd roars).

Check back each day this week and stay tuned on Twitter as we release other exciting updates throughout the week.

Our current BlackBerry & iPhone users LOVE to update their Twitter status using their voice. Check out the word clouds below to see some of the most popular Tweeted words!

    I've been using Vlingo since last October and can't say enough about all the ways it continues to increase in value for me.

    I just tweeted the iPad promo tweet to help spread the love.

    By the way, Erin, what application did you use to generate those word clouds?

    Thanks!

    I used Vlingo on my BlackBerry and loved it. when I switched to android and found out that I missed the beta test I was very sad but I found the software online and now I can use Vlingo on the trial and I am so excited.
