Twitter for food porn!

Ha ha…made you look!

Actually this is serious comment on the mighty Vancouver-based food vendor Japadog, as mentioned in Mashable’s article – ‘Tweetable Eats: What Street Vendors Can Teach Businesses About Twitter’


Communicate the breadth and depth of your products or services on Twitter in a fresh, compelling way, and in a manner that speaks directly to your customers’ needs.

Let’s look:


Sincerity, communicative, informative and they make recommendations to draw people it. It tastes pretty damn good too!

Dell attributes $3m in sales to it’s Twitter account

I found this interesting article at Information Week.

Dell sells refurbished computer systems through Twitter at @DellOutlet, which the computer maker says has more than 600,000 followers.

Picture 2

Since launching @DellOutlet in 2007, the company has taken in more than $2 million in sales directly attributed to Twitter and another $1 million from people who start at Twitter and then move on to buy a new computer somewhere else on the Dell Web site, Stefanie Nelson, who manages the Twitter account, said in the corporate blog late Thursday night.

It is a masterclass on getting Twitter right…

Authentic, attentive, real human interactions with advice on directing people to what they want to find. So many other businesses can learn from this.

I worked with Dell people for about 18 months in Europe and, I have to say, they are a insight-driven, dedicated company that pushes it’s people to deliver excellence to their customers. Hats off to you!
