I guess somebody is twitting about something other than their lunches and doctor visits and convenience store purchases and latest self-back-patting.
Dell said on Thursday it has raked in more than $3 million from Twitter followers who clicked through its posts to its Web sites to make purchases. The company, which has posted to Twitter about two years and tracks the sales with proprietary software, made more than $1 million in the past 6 months.
Aside: I like Dells. I have four or five Dell computers in all sizes
and shapes come to think of it, they’re all rectangular that have given me excellent value for the money and, the few times I’ve had to call tech support, they’ve been excellent (then, again, I don’t go up the wall simply because the person who answers the phone happens to speak with an accent).
If they can make money carnival-barking on Twitter, more power to them.
But I won’t be there.
