The Power of Twitter

Dear Tweeps — I’m a convert. I have been tweeting since Christmas and, to be honest, never really understood why I was doing it. But yesterday? Wow. I was appearing on the Jeni Barnet show (listen here) and needed street food samples to taste. With only 24 hours to go, I sent out an SOS. Eat Street retweeted (get me with my twitter lingo) and Job Done. On the Sunday morning, outside Broadcasting House, I was met by a beautifully-wrapped chorizo and halloumi sandwich from Engine Food, ribs from the Rib Man, beef tacos from Toma Mexicano and steamed pork buns from Yum Bun. Every single dish was amazing. I was touched by the fact that each of the traders had made the effort………and so was Jeni. Love twitter. Love street food.
