@nwjerseyliz: #RLTM Soooo….if I talk about Pretzel Crisps the pretzel party bus will come by my house with bags of pretzels? cc: @jasonharty

@Du4: LOVE @PretzelCrisps’ online-to-offline engagement strategy. Frickin’ BRILLS. #RLTM

@brightmatrix: #RLTM Nice to see a company that doesn’t care about the # of followers you have (or your Klout score, too, I’m sure) when engaging.

@MrShri: @brightmatrix companies should engage with one & all #RLTM

@brightmatrix: @mrshri Very true, but I keep hearing about companies reading influence scores when engaging or responding & it bothers me. #RLTM

@brightmatrix: @mrshri Agreed. I think influence overall is still a nascent & evolving metric. Research & context remain critical. #RLTM

Social Sampling: Pretzel Crisps delivered to the Zendesk office (and tweeted by @Zendesk)

@Zendesk: .@pretzelcrisps found @Zendesk via Twitter and this was the result: They did not send the vodka :) #rltm

@JennyMack: .@JoselinMane Spotted — you’re in the @PretzelCrisps preso at #RLTM — photo of @451Heat team having a pretzel party. Nom!

@Du4: @PretzelCrisps = DOING IT RIGHT. Reaching out to virally grown community regardless of performance metrics (like follower numbers). #RLTM

@AmandaMcCormick: Good question: how many @pretzelcrisps would you pay for a fan? #RLTM

@neilglassman: Says @jasonharty: “Social sampling” used to create bridge from social connection to real world community #RLTM

@tonia_ries: I love that brands like @pretzelcrisps are focused on earned impressions, not follower numbers #rltm

Earned impressions: did we already mention that #RLTM tweeters are fans of Pretzel Crisps?
