Twitter powered vending machine

OK, I’m a bit the slow here. Back in December, a Canadian telecommunication company, Telus, setup a vending machine filled with cute little panda soft toys.
A vending machine with soft toys isn’t uncommon. But this vending machine does not accept cash. It gives away the panda soft toy in exchange for a tweet containing the hashtag #HomeTweetHome. Over 6 days, the vending machine dispensed 3000 panda soft toy. The telco also gave $1 to WWF Canada for every tweet posted.

Cool idea huh?
