Market to me Twitter

Posted 8 years ago by Adam Gautsch

Two businesses that are using Twitter correctly are Woot and Amazon's MP3 store. Both have perfect business models for the medium. They both post one deal each day on Twitter. You don't get overly spammed (would Twammed be Twitter Spam?) and you get a heads up on a good deal each day. It's nice to get short, helpful information from Twitter. Good at both Amazon and Woot.

Bear,
Thanks brotha. I had no idea. I agree though. Great business using a solid crap service! :)

Yeah, I guess it could be said that Twitter doesn't use itself well.

I'm having a hard time believing that their outages have gone on like this. I would think that they'd be pulling out the big guns by now. It does make an interesting test case though. How long will people use a service that consistently annoys them simply because other people (either popular, or part of their circles) are using the service?

side note: Oh! You're little spam addition field changes values! Very interesting.

I was skeptical of the mathematical captcha at first, but it's worked better at blocking spam than our old WordPress blog ever did. Drupal indeed has some nifty features. We also employ the honeypot captcha approach as well.
