Another day, another #YoForMoto fail

Another day, another #YoForMoto fail
As the saying goes, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. Yesterday, Motorola ran a promotion through Yo to give away twenty Moto 360 smartwatches. The giveaway had troubles with many more than twenty people reportedly receiving a message that they had won, only to be disappointed. In an effort to make amends, Motorola decided to run the promotion again today. 

Unfortunately, the promotion seems to have failed again. Users on Twitter have been reporting a number of problems, including the same issue as yesterday. Others say they never received the Yo message from Motorola, or that the Yo didn't hit their devices until a few minutes after 11AM CT, meaning that they had absolutely no chance of winning the contest. 

No word from Motorola about the contest, nor from Yo, but there appears to be less attention being paid to today's promotion. We wouldn't expect Motorola to try the same promotion again though, even with more troubles today. Anyone out there win a Moto 360?
