Out of the blue, I asked Twitter what it would do if Oreo came knocking looking for a social media project. In about 20 minutes, I had some interesting ideas (shared below). I’m not sure what motivated me to ask the question, but it came out of thinking that went something like this: We’ve all got decent ideas. We’re all passionate about seeing how social media might help businesses and people. We probably could do something reasonably creative, if motivated.
The answers turned out fun. I’m happy that I asked the question, and thrilled with who responded. So, with all that said, why not pour a glass a milk and see what people had to say?
What Twitter Would Do for Oreos
audreychernoff — How about just creating a new Oreo, with fiber, less sugar, etc? Something that tastes great but appeals to dieters.
lfamous — something like JibJab where you can put your kids in an Oreo commercial (& an oreo ringtone & download for music player) Yum!
carlweaver — I love your questions like this but never know what to say. I’d do an Oreo building competition. Imagine an Oreo building.
KariRippetoe — place to post videos and/or photos of creative Oreo stacks, community can vote for coolest structures
bradatpharma — Oreo avatars. I’d have an opportunity for people to offer new flavours, I’d have a feedback loop for taste testers… hmmm…

KariRippetoe — they already have a YouTube channel for Oreo Moments videos…but does that sell cookies?
jsmibert — First blush.. Id do a Cross platform competition… (Out ur Inner Oreo Addiction) w/ liberal winner pool 2 win fun oreo stuff!
SpaceyG — I’d blog, Twitter, place an ad, whatever, for say… a year’s supply of Oreos. Love those things. I’d be fat as a pig too.
