Listen To The Story

This final note today, which is a little bit marketing and a little bit genius. And frankly, a little bit godsent.

Twitter and Starbucks launched a new partnership on Monday. It's called -- we kid you not -- @tweetacoffee.

A $5 digital gift to the recipient of your choice. You sync up your Starbucks account and your Twitter account, use the handle @tweetacoffee and the desired recipient. And you're basically there.

And remember all you fans out there. You can tweet Kai at @kairyss -- wait, never mind.

That wouldn't be cool.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VA
