MagPile invitations ahoy!

See that ad to the right? MagPile is a great new way of sharing your favourite magazines, finding out what your friends are enjoying, and generally bigging up magazines. Why wouldn’t you, you magaholic, want to be involved in that? At present the site is invitation-only, but Dan at MagPile has kindly offered us 50 invites to share.

How do you get one of those 50?

Just tweet saying what your favourite magazine is (using its hashtag), mentioning Magpile’s twitter account (@magpilecom). The first 50 tweets win an invitation. Easy!

Good luck.
