    The Cisco Live Skywriting Twitter Contest


    Some tweets are so good they deserve high profile exposure.


    With the Cisco Live Skywriting Twitter Contest, your idea and Twitter handle just might appear in the skies above Las Vegas. How’s that for high profile?


    Here’s how it works:


    Reply to either of the following when posted by @CiscoLive on Twitter:


    “There has never been a better time to…”


    “Your time is now to…”


    Your response along with your Twitter handle may be selected to be written in the sky during Cisco Live. Entries should be 24 characters or less for optimal skywriting results. Eight winners will be selected.
    The first skywriting will occur on Monday, July 11, between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. PT. The second flight will be Wednesday, July 13, between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time.


    Get creative. Be inspired. Think big. After all, the sky’s the limit. Literally.
