Want To Be A Twitterspondent At MTV’s Video Music Awards?

Do you plan to watch MTV‘s Video Music Awards on September 6? Well, wouldn’t it be more fun attending the event in person?

If you know your way around a #hashtag and can come up with the best entry, you could win a spot at the award show acting as a Twitterspondent!

Taco Bell is hosting the only VMA pre-party on September 5 and they’re searching for a Twitterspondent to cover both the pre-party and attend the awards.

To enter, tweet the reason why they should pick you using #FeedtheTweet and #Spon (cool kid talk for ‘correspondent’) and then spin around three times while eating a taco. We made that last part up.

Competition is fierce though, so really think about how you want to pitch yourself. Some tips? Claiming to “know their secret” has been done:


And threatening to kill yourself if someone doesn’t win probably isn’t the best way to go:

And insulting their food (though hilarious) is most definitely not going to result in a ‘win:’


Or maybe it will – who knows? Entries close tomorrow though, August 29 at 5pm PT – so get your entries in soon!
