My thanks to Atebits for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed to promote Tweetie for Mac, an excellent new Twitter client. Their ad in the RSS feed was tweet-sized (exactly 140 characters), and consisted mainly of this haiku by Tweetie developer Loren Brichter:
Gruber loves Tweetie
So do all of the cool kids
Give me your money
I’m not sure if there’s an award for best haiku in an advertisement, but if there is, this one gets my nomination. Tweetie for Mac really is a great Twitter client, and I encourage you to check it out. Use coupon code “DARINGFIREBALL” when purchasing a license and you’ll save 25 percent.
