Want to Treat Someone to a Beer Long Distantance? Welcome to Tweet-A-Beer
What will they think of next? This could be pretty cool! Tweet-A-Beer will let you buy a friend a beer, no matter where they are. The app links up your Twitter and PayPal accounts to a service called Chirpify, allowing you to send a cool $5 to anyone on Twitter, based on their @ handle.
The website says:
Tweet-a-Beer connects your Twitter and PayPal accounts together to ensure that distance, agoraphobia, and gang rivalries no longer prevent you from sharing a pint. Please tweet responsibly.
Once you sign up,
choose the @recipient (on Twitter), send them a beer ($5), and add a reason, meeting place, or requests for the juke box. Once submitted, the recipient will receive a tweet mention from you with a link leading them to details on how to claim the beer money.
Cool idea. Now, if only there was a way to tweet a real beer!
