Starbucks and Twitter are combining your addictions: coffee and social media. The two organizations have teamed up for the Canadian launch of “Tweet-a-Coffee” today, which sees customers with a registered Starbucks account score a $5 eGift card when they “Tweet-a-Coffee” on Twitter.
The directions are pretty simple and Starbucks Canada VP Richard Burjaw says, “We’re thrilled to enable the ability for customers to spread some kindness.” For those interested in sharing some love, all you have to do is become a Starbucks account holder and Tweet out Tweet-a-Coffee on Twitter to a friend with @tweetacoffee. When this is done you can print out the coupon or show it to the barista on your mobile, or load it directly onto your Starbucks mobile app (iPhone and Android). This starts today, so expect longer lineups.
