The noble gesture when you’re out at the bar with friends and loved ones is to pick up a round of beers. Traditionally, that meant you had to actually be in the drinking establishment with your friends, but now with help from a new Twitter tool you can buy someone a Frankenmuth Beer without ever setting foot in the brewery.
Thanks to Tweet-A-Beer, a new Twitter tool, the dream of buying a friend a physical beer, not an unsatisfying virtual brew, is now a reality. Tweet-A-Beer does this by using an e-commerce program that allows users to sync a Twitter account to a Paypal account. Once all of these components have linked together, users can send up to five dollars at one time to a friend to use for beer.
This week, Tweet-A-Beer, created by a Portland-based tenfour, launches at the annual South by Southwest music and film conference, where already there have already been 500 beers purchased through the application. Be the first of your friends to send someone a few dollars to spend on a beer at Frankenmuth Brewery. After all, anytime innovative technology and beer come together, the world becomes a much more friendly and happy place.
