Why is this such a great idea? Because Stormhoek is following the 'rules of the road' for Twitter. They aren't on Twitter trying to promote their product. They have joined Twitter and in using the service and interacting with others, they noticed something. They noticed that often, people are creating usually spontaneous meetings called 'Tweetups'. So Stormhoek decided that if people are going to be having these Tweetups anyway, why not give them some free wine to drink? What better way to get people talking about your product, than to put it in the hands of people for free?
"Two years ago, Stormhoek sponsored geek dinners. They were a huge success.
We're ready to get back at it.
This time, however, we're going to sponsor Tweetups. If you're one of the people following me on Twitter, are based in the USA and are planning on having a Tweetup in the next wee while, drop me an e-mail, and let's see if we can't get some wine sent there for the evening. Rock on.[For those of you outside the loop, a "Tweetup" is a spontaneous, self-organizing social gathering of fellow Twitter users, usually organized on Twitter itself. Usually food and drink are part of the equation etc.]"
