Whole Foods Market asks what their clients like to read and watch, recommends new food podcasts and invites them to the company upcoming events. ComCast offers a friendly Twitter customer support; with a real person photo instead of the company logo.

RAC is using Tweets from Patrols on own site to convey new “the driving people” brand and for search optimisation Samsung has created a Twitter account dedicated to mobile phones and posts both the company and product news there.

Events & news > Engage On 12 February 2009 202 cities around the world held Twestivals, bringing together the Twitter community for an evening of fun and to raise money and awareness for charity: water. “ Recently in London, Robert McIntosh and Bibendum wines invited a group of around a dozen food and wine bloggers to a Twitter wine tasting at the Saatchi Gallery.
