Sagt zumindest Dell, wie Venturebeat berichtet:
Less altruistically, some businesses have discovered that Twitter is an effective way of communicating with consumers. Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) says Twitter has produced $1 million in revenue over the past year and a half through sale alerts. People who sign up to follow Dell on Twitter receive messages when discounted products are available the company’s Home Outlet Store. They can click over to purchase the product or forward the information to others.
Kontrollieren kann das natürlich keiner, aber vielleicht bringts den einen oder andern zum Grübeln.
