You all remember Samer Karam’s brainchild @cooki3man, which was the first twitter based business model. Through @cookieman you could order cookies baked according to Samer’s secret recipe via DM ( and later on via email). And whilst the business was quite successful and many were jumping to place orders and batches were running out fast, legend has it Samer’s oven broke down and he moved back to more serious and less sugar rush inducing endeavors.
But it seems there is another business that is willing to explore the power of twitter’s word of mouth business growth.
Having been punked by the Brand Protection Group Campaign recently, having @taxilb adding near April 1st, did not speak in their favor, as I am as cautious as ever. But indeed I am curious and have been watching them interact online stirring quite a commotion amongst the twittershphere with their value proposition.
And some of their posts are plain hilarious:
It does not seem that any one has tried them out yet, but their rates sound very reasonable and their online persona is very bubbly.
Quite interestingly, the business started with an twitter account before even launching the website.
Well that is all I know for now, but of course I am full of questions wanting to know who is behind this service and how the business is going so far and if anybody has used it.
Lets keep looking, maybe next time I have to take my car for maintenance I will try them out!
