Twitter Powered Gumball Machine Trades Sweets For Tweets

Think your office is the most technologically tricked out on the block? Think again.

Unless you have a Twitter-powered gumball machine (or maybe a Twitter-controlled coffee pot) your office isn’t even a contender. Yep, it’s all about what you can power with those tweets. At least it is today. Check this out!

The folks from Philter Communications Inc, and Kevin Hisko specifically (their new media and technology person), bring you Treat for Tweet (@tweetatweat).

It’s a nifty little gumball machine that will only release pieces of candy when a tweet is sent requesting one. If you do not tweet, you will not get a gumball. So there.

Why did they create this? Well, this is a pretty clever attention grabber for a a company that focuses on connecting brands with people, isn’t it? We think so.

We bet you can’t wait to see it in action, right? Here you go!
