The #FollowFriday Series highlights today’s up-and-coming, active and all-around noteworthy Twitter accounts the AudioAcrobat staff deems worthy of following; while at the same time peering deeper into the soul(-cial media) of each account and providing a brief-yet-informative analysis.
Welcome back for the forty-eighth #FollowFriday tweet / WordPress mashup of 2012 here on the AudioAcrobat Weblog!
In today’s post, we will dive deeper into the tweets of Austin, TX-based coupon/promo code search portal, RetailMeNot (@RetailMeNot) and the Twitter accounts they have chosen to follow … a mirror, if you will, into the soul(-cial media) behind a company who was acquired by the world’s leading marketplace for coupons and deals (WhaleShark Media) in late 2010 for an estimated $90 million!
Yep. That’s right, we just said it … “soulcial media”. We also said, “a company who was acquired by the world’s leading marketplace for coupons and deals (WhaleShark Media) in late 2010 for an estimated $90 million!” in the same sentence.
