You control the news — tell us what to cover via Twitter

Tonight in New York City a bunch of tech companies will show off various cool toys from their holiday lineups. We'll be there, and so will you, deciding what DVICE covers.

How can such a thing be possible? One word: Twitter. While we're there, we'll tweet photos and descriptions of the products on display on the DVICE Twitter feed. All you guys have to do is follow along and send us @replies, telling us what you want to hear about. We'll write those items up for the blog, you get the news you want — everybody wins!

Well, one person more than others. We're giving away a Sharp i-elegance iPod dock to one lucky follower. Just send an @reply guiding our coverage during tonight's event, and you'll be entered to win. Full rules after the jump.

Tonight's event starts at 6 p.m. Eastern and lasts 'til 9, but you can send us tweets till 9:30. Please don't send @replies until we start tweeting what we see. Looking forward to hearing from y'all tonight!
