Lovely Warm Bread via Twitter

Photo by James JordanStrange title isn’t it?  But it’s about a wonderful story involving a London bakery using Twitter to inform people when they’re just baked a fresh batch of bread.  You can get the whole story here: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5iIgCLG0fRo40rP-hNwT54BwCTIBA

It’s a fantastic example of a business looking at how it can take new technology and use it to increase business.  Most people would never think that a bakery would benefit from having a website or from using Twitter or Facebook.  However, they’ve identified a selling point, in that people love warm bread (and the smell of warm bread – YUM!) and they’ve managed to find a niche that people are just lapping up!
