pay with a tweet w/ Airtweet • What is it? AirTweet is a web service that allows consumers to pre-order at their favorite restaurants with a Tweet. • How does it work?

The consumer gets to skip the line at popular restaurants, retailers, or venues, by pre-ordering. The merchant beneﬁts by earning media in the form of a Tweet. • Opportunities: AirTweet is an effective way to drive product trial and to promote a partnership with any music venue, club, or bar. • Happy Hour/Pre-Game Event: Earn your ﬁrst Smirnoff cocktail by promoting the Happy Hour using AirTweet. • Buy Your Friend a Drink: Friends can order their friends drinks at bars across the city via AirTweet. • Pre-register for a local party via AirTweet (serves as lead generation tool and publicity source for the marketer).
viddy? an instagram for video? • What is it? Viddy is an iPhone app that lets users shoot short videos, edit the footage, and then and apply Instagram-like ﬁlter effects. • Why does it matter? Just a week after Facebook acquired Instagram for $1 billion, it’s hard not to look at Instagram-inspired start-ups as destined for the same glory. Viddy may be prove to be just as much an addictive and thus successful project, but what’s more interesting (for now) is that it’s acquiring new users incredibly quickly: on 4/12, Viddy earned 300,000 users in just 24 hours. • VentureBeat attributes this amazing growth to “Timeline Bump,” or surge in usage that followers integration with Facebook’s new Open Graph protocol, which lets lets apps broadcast user activity “seamlessly,” or without repeated permission. • Why It Works? Spotify entered the US market just as Facebook released the Open Graph: as new users joined Spotify and automatically broadcasted their music listening to their friends, more and more new users signed up for the service. The same strategy applies to Viddy. • Open Graph integration doesn’t work for all apps (like Evernote, for example), but it does help apps that produce interesting personal information—a current playlist—or interest content—a new picture or new video—acquire prospective users.
