Golden Twist was created to serve as a unique resource for funny stories and entertaining videos, but it was also formed for another reason: to host the occasional sweepstakes so that you can line your pockets in gold. We gave away five thousand dollars in our last sweepstakes!

Is it possible to travel to Hawaii instantaneously, without even buying a plane ticket? Yes! Just play an amazing musical instrument called a ukulele and the magic sounds from the very first chords will take you to the seashore, right to the sunny Hawaiian Islands.
