Live-Tweeting QVC: An Intimate Evening with the Quacker Factory
Last night, at around 11pm CST, I decided to devote 30 minutes of my life to Quality, Value, and Convenience. I didn't know which channel would best suit these three immediate values. There must be one, I thought, that encompassed those three ideas. Fortunately, my lack of cable provided a lake-wave to channel surf, and what luck! I landed at QVC, the greatest and single longest infomercial in television, nay, human, history.
I also had with me a computer, TweetDeck, and my wits about me.
Lovely readers, I offer you the live-tweeting of QVC of Monday, July 5th, 2010. Enjoy.
perhaps I should live-tweet like, 20 mins of QVC
