Man wins competition with Twitter tot

A clever computer geek won loads of prizes by creating a Twitter bot which automatically entered competitions.

The Twitter account named "@racer236" was created by Hunter Scott, who with the help of his invention, won thousands of gifts and has re-tweeted over 165,000 Twitter contests over nine months.

One company called Chikas Foods tweeted Hunter's bot: "We are excited to send you your box of treats @racer236 have a look at our delicious selection! #ChristmasGiveaway (sic)"

He went on to win several items, including a bra, with the business, Pop Style Dresses, asking him for his details to send the lingerie.

They wrote: "Congratulations @racer236 You are the Winner of Bare Lifts Bra Competition for November,2014.Please DM your details (sic)"
