All-Star: Twitter voting opens Thursday at 9 a.m. PT
Since fan voting for the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game opened on June 10, the ballots have been flying in for the All-Star Fan XI.
Thursday, a new wrinkle will officially be added to the mix: The Twitter vote.
How does it all work? Here's what you need to know:
- Voting is open until from 9am PT Thursday, June 20 to 8:59pm PT Friday, June 21, 2013. A short window, so make sure you get as many tweets in as you can.
An eligible vote consists of the hashtag #MLSAllStar
- AND the player's full name (first and last required) with or without a space (Example: Diego Valeri, or DiegoValeri and Donovan Ricketts or DonovanRicketts);
- OR their twitter @handle (Example: @WillJohnson04, @DiegoChara21, @darlingtonnagbe, @mikeymomoney2).

- A user may vote for multiple players in a tweet; however, a user may not vote for a single player multiple times within one tweet.
- There is no limit to the number of tweets a user may submit for any one player. Go nuts.
- Each twitter vote counts equal to one text vote, or one online vote.
So that's the deal. Get your Twitter game ready, the All-Star Fan XI depends on it.
