Summary:  Creme Brulee Cart
In San Francisco, a man named Curtis Kimball opened his creme brulee cart, and three weeks later, he noticed a person that hadn’t been there before. The man found out about it on twitter. After that, Curtis went to twitter and signed up for an account. He had 5 400 followers that wait for him to post where his cart is going to be and what the flavors of the day are. Twitter has helped him so much that he had to quit his day job as a carpenter to keep up with the demand.
