I imagine the meeting for @earlybird at Twitter went a little something like this:
Twitter 1: “We need to start making money, guys.”
Twitter 2: “Affiliate sales!”
Twitter 1: “Genius.”
Or something more asinine than that. Anyway, if you choose to follow @earlybird you’ll get twitters about special time-sensitive deals. It’s probably a lot like woot or dealnews. Let’s see what they offer before we get all judgy wudgy. Too late!
