Twitter: Fish

By 7 a.m. each morning Carl Galvan has already been Twittering for close to three hours. Galvan, a sales representative at Supreme Lobster & Seafood in Villa Park, uses the messaging service Twitter to post photos of fish and other seafood Supreme is offering and to interact with chefs interested in placing orders based on those photos. Since Galvan started using Twitter four months ago, he estimates his sales have doubled. “What helps the most is that the chefs who follow my updates can actually see the quality of the product we’re carrying, in real time,” Galvan says.

I should point out that unless the fishing industry makes radical changes, there will be no fish left by 2048.
