Twitter can do just about anything

But can it sell this car? I wonder if Twitter is the new CarSoup.com–or even better, the new Craigslist?Would you buy a car from this tweet?

    Ha ha, now that’s fun and enterprising, though maybe a little optimistic, I dunno! I might send this on to my pal @inspiredtrain. He’s into automotive sales and twitter in a big way, lovely guy too. Be interesting to see what he thinks about it.

    Thanks for adding me on linkedin btw. 🙂

      You bet, Jools! Yeah I saw this online and have no idea if the guy sold his car or not. Let me know if your friend has any luck tweeting car sales!

    Hi Jools, and Amy, thanks for thinking of me Jools.
    Will this ‘gentleman’ sell his car through his advertising his twitter ‘handle’?
    @Betonyc
    um, have you visited his page?
    Can you imagine what that particular mode of transport smells like?

    But enough frivolity, I’m sure he’s a very nice chap.
    Will Twitter become another Craiglist?
    See @OxmoorMazda and @EastCoastAuto.

    I train Dealerships to use Social Media socially, build relationships etc. Sorry, almost went off into plug myself mode. Very distasteful.
    I think #newtwitter may be more vunerable to marketing and direct selling, as the need to navigate away to view information will be removed, advertisers and marketers will understand that and try to exploit it.
    But Social Media will evolve as it’s users want it to, which is kind of scary. Here in Canada there is very little direct selling on Twitter, it’s certainly got it’s crop of coupon/deal/incentive of the Day sites, (9 at the last count in Vancouver alone) and people use it to promote their business, but I don’t know if there is a #ForSale element here.
    1st impressions count. As an experienced car guy, do not buy the vehicle. It’s a ‘lemon’
    I just thought, do you think the 4/s is actually 4Square and he is indeed, mayor of his car? Or maybe $4 buys the car? He just couldn’t reach that high up accurately?
    Phone him Jools, I dare ya.
