Restaurants on Twitter

The Food & Dining section in today’s Press Herald includes a feature story on Maine restaurants use of Twitter.

Arsenault was still new to Twitter, so when she organized a “tweet-up” at the inn for the folks who had been following her posts online, she hoped that maybe 15 people would show up.

“And then people just started piling in,” she said.

To Arsenault’s surprise, 37 diners drove to Scarborough to take advantage of the inn’s tweet-up specials – $5 mussel appetizers, $2 beers and $5 glasses of wine. Many were new to the inn, and some of them stayed on for dinner.
