Fro-yo Twittering

Fro-yo girl here. I joined Twitter two years ago (under another name) but I couldn’t find anyone I wanted to follow (granted, I didn’t look very hard) and I didn’t have anything to say either. Things are completely different now that Twitter has caught on with fro-yo shops. If you haven’t joined yet and you like fro-yo, sign up for an account so that you can follow your favorite fro-yo shops or fro-yo shops from all over the world! Typical fro-yo shop tweets include announcing new hours or new flavors.

Fro-yo shops with a Bay Area presence on Twitter include:
Orange Tree:
Penguin Froyo:
Red Mango:
Tutti Frutti:
Yogen Fruz:
Yogurt Park:

I think the majority of fro-yo shop Twitter accounts belong to Bay Area shops.

The award for the fro-yo shop that is using Twitter most effectively goes to Red Mango. They’ve announced store openings, celebrity sightings (the Governator recently stopped by for some fro-yo), general fro-yo news, etc. They’ve also uploaded a lovely, appetizing cup of fro-yo as their background image. CEO Dan Kim even has his own separate Twitter account.

Fro-yo fans are also busy tweeting. One of my favorites is a fro-yoholic in Chicago:

You know you love me. X0 X0, fro-yo girl.

Hi Fro-Yo girl! I am a fellow froyoholic from the East Coast; check out the google map I made of all fro-yo places on the Eastern Seaboard! It's a work in progress, as new places open all the time, but I still like it:

Hi Stella,

I'm sure your map is amazing...for some reason I can't see it but I'm sure that's a problem on my end. I can imagine it though.

Thanks for the shout out, Fro-yo girl. I've enjoyed reading your blog and "tweets" as well. It's always great to connect with a fellow fro-yo fanatic.

Likewise, Aimee. I admire your commitment to fro-yo :-).
