Checking in to your favorite spots can help you earn rewards (even cold, hard cash!), but so can staying on top of your Twitter feed. Twitter recently launched the @earlybird account, which will be broadcasting time-sensitive deals, discounts, and special offers from advertisers to its followers.
Twitter has come up with a few ways to monetize its service — by incorporating promoted tweets and trending topics — but now it has a chance to not only earn some money for itself but also save all of us some cash by offering some sweet travel, tech, fashion, and entertainment deals. Think of it like a Twitter-generated Woot Off, which are always totally fun to jump in on! The tweets will be for nationwide offers at first but will eventually be venturing into the local and regional markets soon. Guess we can add Twitter to our ever-expanding list of money-saving social networks!
