Learn Social Media by Example: The Zack16 Campaign

The Meet Zack Campaign, by Leo Burnett USA, is quite the fascinating and boundary decimating campaign. It really pushes the limits of what kind of approach a marketing campaign can take and it blurs the lines of what is an ad.

21 Twittering Objects, Appliances and Animals! Ridiculous or Useful?

TwitterBirdsWhen Facebook first introduced status updates, it was interesting reading the continuous updates of people in my friends list. Different people used it in different ways; most used it to inform others about their current status, but some took it too far and were – ridiculously – reporting nearly every single action they do. Then Twitter appeared with the question “What are you doing?”, and took the obsession of status updates to a whole new level. Today, not only people report what they do, but also objects, appliances and even animals do as well!

We looked around the Web for non-human twitterers beside the commonly known news (and spam) bots and brought you the following list – some ridiculous and some useful:

1. Tweeting Plant:

You don’t have to worry – anymore – about knowing when your plant is thirsty and in need of water, it will tell you by itself! @Pothos is a tweeting plant that sends status updates to Twitter and defines a new way of communication between plants and human beings!

@pothos - The tweeting plant

@pothos - The tweeting plant

2. Tweeting Toilet:

Yes! Your toilet can post to Twitter every flush – that is if you want the world to know about it -!  Follow @hacklabtoilet for this guy’s toilet updates!

The tweeting toilet!
