Treating a friend to a 380-calorie grande pumpkin spice latte can now be done in less than 140 characters. Yes, you can now send a Starbucks coffee via a tweet.
Today Starbucks launched a new @Tweetacoffee program, and it works just as you might assume. Head over to https://www.starbucks.com/tweet-a-coffee, log in with your Starbucks account (or create a new one), put in the Twitter handle of your caffeine-loving friend and hit the green Tweet Your eGift button. Starbucks will tweet to your friend with a link to redeem a $5 gift card.
No, the coffee isn’t sent directly through the computer or phone — Starbuck’s hasn’t quite figured that out yet. Recipients can open the link on their phones the next time they are at Starbucks and just show the screen and have the bar code scanned. Pumpkin spice latte delivered! No need for the recipient to have a Starbucks account themselves.
