Power company Electric Ireland recently debuted a Twitter Cafe at the Dublin Web Summit. The Twitter Cafe used the social media messaging site to process orders of visitors. Hungry guests at the Dublin Web Summit were asked to send a tweet with #tweetcafe along with the menu number of the food or drink they wished to order.

The Twitter Cafe used a digital board to inform people, using their Twitter handle naturally, that their order was ready. Although the cafe was just a temporary installation, don't be surprised if you see this sort of thing popping up all over the place. The day may not be far when you can send in a to-go food order via Twitter. Social media and food service is a tasty combination.
