Last week I wrote about Earlybird (@earlybird), a concept Twitter has developed to promote the merchandise and services of carefully selected partners. In return, Twitter gets a share of revenue, and we get access to some incredible deals. It all sounded rather splended. Even wondrous clichÃ©s like ‘golden eggs’ were thrown around.
Well, this all went live yesterday, and the first amazing offer is now up! What is it? Can you wait? I hope you’re sitting down.
It’s, uh… tickets for a Disney movie you’ve never heard of.
Today, we’re excited to launch the first @earlybird Exclusive Offer, in partnership with The Walt Disney Studios. For a limited time, @earlybird followers in the U.S. can get a special deal on tickets for “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” a new feature film from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films that opens in theaters today.
Form an orderly queue everybody… no pushing to the front… calm down… CALM DOWN…!
