Daft marketing of the year


A bloke
trying to flog a money making idea on Twitter has told hacks he is targetting it at those people with more money than sense. Insulting potential clients is not usually the sort of marketing technique that wins friends and influences people, however true it may be.

Super Rewards co-founder Jason Bailey has written a new role-playing game on Twitter called 140 Mafia using Super Rewards, a "virtual currency" service. Bailey said that the game has taken off and he is already making more money from Twitter than Twitter is itself.

Talking to AP he said that some game players have forked over thousands of dollars. "It's all about ego and status for them," he said. "Clearly, some people have more money than brains."
