Twitter & Food Truck/Food Carts

I won't go into this topic in great detail here as it will be a feature in the first issue of American Foodways magazine, but one of the keys to the growing popularity of food carts is the ability to use social media tools such as Twitter to tell legions of hungry fans where the cart will be parked that day. In some cities, such as Austin and Portland, there are designated spots for food carts so Twitter is used to send out specials and reminders. Again, we will cover this topic in more depth.

In the meantime, here is an NPR story about how one food truck in L.A. uses Twitter to keep its fans informed.
