EarlyBird: Twitter's official daily deal tweets
Alright all you deal hunters out there, you should know that Twitter today went live with its @EarlyBird account.
Twitter, through @EarlyBird, is about exclusive offers for "special time-bound deals, sneak-peeks, and events."
"We partner with select advertisers and retweet offers that they have crafted only for the Twitter community. Our advertising partners determine the terms of the offer, including availability, amount, and price. As with other forms of advertising from Twitter, we are focused on bringing value to our users and will keep your interests in mind as we develop this program."
This is another way that Twitter is trying to make money -- by partnering with advertisers to promote "daily deals" through their platform. The "daily deal" model seems to be gaining popularity, as sites like Groupon and Woot, which was just bought by Amazon, have seen success with it.
