Twitter literally amazes me. I’ve met so many talented people, have found a number of inspiring blogs and have had received a handful of opportunities because of said social media channel. It’s how I find new restaurants to try, how I connect with my favorite brands, how I read the latest and most up-to-date news (I mean, how did you find out about the earthquake today? Personally, I found out through Twitter. Amazing!) and so much more. There’s always something new and exciting going on in the Twitterverse – like a month-long event tweeting about free ice cream, asking followers to interact by tweeting their location suggestions. That’s what I call Twitter genius.
So, speaking of interacting with my favorite brands on Twitter…I’m not sure if you’ve ever heard of the little ice cream brand known as Ben & Jerry’s? Well, let me clue you in:
“Ben & Jerry’s (a Vermont corporation) produces a wide variety of super-premium ice cream and ice cream novelties, using high-quality ingredients including milk and cream from family farmers who do not treat their cows with the synthetic hormone rBGH. Ben and Jerry’s products are distributed nationwide and in selected foreign countries in supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience stores, franchise Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops, restaurants and other venues.”
Now, did you know that there has been a Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Truck driving around Boston all August long giving out totally free and totally delicious ice cream?! They’ll only be around for a few more days (I cannot believe it’s the last full week in August!) so pay attention to them on Twitter people, because this offer is just too good to pass up.
