The giveaway T&C listed with all the extra entries (tweeting, etc.) are from a previous expired offer: Promotion Description: The 'Rafflecopter Demo Giveaway' ("Sweepstakes") begins on 05/23/2016 at 12:00 AM (Eastern Time (US & Canada)) and ends on 06/05/2016 at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time (US & Canada)) (the "Promotion Period").​​

I hope that doesn't void the contest. I took advantage of all the extra offers anyway.
