True. I don't read all the messages of everyone I follow.

Thats the thing about Twitter - you don't have to read all the messages.

Twitter's strength is speed. Not comprehensiveness.

Its main use (at least for me) is quick problem solving. Or quick spreading of messages.

If I had restaurants as my clients - I would still follow Linda Caroll's ideas she had shared a few years ago on Sowpub.

(Can someone dig Linda's post? I didn't find it via google search...)

And base everything on emails. Or maybe SMS / mobile. But probably not on Twitter.

If you do use Twitter for coupons... you need to aim for at least 10,000 followers from one area. Companies like Dell have managed to earn a lot of business from Twitter using this coupon model. But a local restaurant may not be able to make the numbers. Unless its a chain maybe...
