This Could Be Next: “Twitter Takeout”
Essentially, Scott, Jeff and the Twitter crowd talked about how great it would be to have the capability to order takeout via SMS and Twitter. Brands are already playing with SMS and mobile web-based ordering. But what would it be like if I could hop onto my Twitter feed, set up an account that would ping my PayPal account and the account I’ve set up with my favorite neighborhood restaurants and post the tweet, “@paypal order 1 @starbucks double Espresso” and have my order placed and paid for while I’m on my way to the nearest Starbucks. @Jeffpulver also introduced the idea that this could be supported with Google Adwords.
What if (to add the social component of Twitter), our friends on Twitter were organizing the next social media breakfast and we could coordinate the menu and ordering via our shared event-based Twitter stream?
No lines to wait in, no trying to find my money at the bottom of my purse while a long line waits… this idea makes me wish I had the resources to develop it. I see “twitter takeout” as a huge opportunity for QSR.
