Finally. Twitter is good for something other than knowing what your friend just ate for dinner. Several New York institutions, like the TKTS people and Dylan’s Candy Bar, are testing out tweets that deliver discounts and, in some cases, free goodies. Just yesterday, the TKTS folks (@TDFNYC) sent out a tweet that read: “We seriously have free tickets to Shrek today @ 2pm. Limited seating. Reply if you’re interested.”
Sure the seats were limited, and solo, but they were free. Dylan’s Candy Bar recently tweeted a code for 25% off, and Kambri Crews (@kambri) tweeted out an offer for free drinks. NewYorkology has a list of other NYC-based Twitterers, including museums, shops, and bars.
