Twitter Activated Vending Machines
What it is:
IVS offers Twitter-activated vending machines to customers looking to trade treats for tweets.
How it works:
Each Twitter-activated vending machine incorporates a touch-screen interface to display the instructions to the consumer. The consumer will be prompted to “tweet” a specific #hashtag to a dedicated @handle from their mobile device. Once the consumer tweets the @ and #, a product is immediately dispensed from the machine. Our machine utilizes a unique hashtag that is specific to the machine, so you have to be standing directly in front of the machine in order to utilize this functionality.

What you can dispense:
Our Twitter-activated vending machines can dispense almost any product, from snacks to t-shirts, if you want to vend it, IVS can do it. Our Twitter application allows a few different options for dispensing. First, we incorporate an @handle and one #hashtag to dispense the product in order, until the machine is emptied. Second, we can incorporate an @handle, one main #hashtag, as well as a specific #hashtag for a specific product in the machine. For example, the tweet would read “@the company #freeswag #tshirt.” Lastly, we can incorporate an @handle and one #hashtag to dispense items randomly within the machine. This allows you to keep it simple with one hashtag, but to give the user the extra “surprise” of having the machine randomly pick their prize.
