@earlybird: Ready to Fly

Businesses already use Twitter as a great way to connect people with special promotions. People already use Twitter to find and share deals on their favorite products & services.

Last week, we unveiled @earlybird, a new account that brings those worlds together by giving people an easy one-stop destination to find out about some of the best deals on Twitter. This unveiling attracted great interest; within days, tens of thousands of Twitter users were following @earlybird.

Today, we’re excited to launch the first @earlybird Exclusive Offer, in partnership with The Walt Disney Studios. For a limited time, @earlybird followers in the U.S. can get a special deal on tickets for “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” a new feature film from Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films that opens in theaters today.

We’re just getting started— we’ve got an amazing lineup of deals to share in the coming days and weeks with people following @earlybird. Several times a week, @earlybird will help consumers discover Twitter-exclusive deals in entertainment, fashion, technology, beauty, travel and more. These deals will come directly from our advertising partners and from other companies (including Groupon and Gilt Groupe) that already deliver valuable deals to consumers via Twitter. Follow @earlybird so you don’t miss out.
