Web app Tweet-a-Beer lets you buy a drink for your Twitter friends, using ecommerce platform Chirpify to sync your Twitter account with your PayPal account. This development in the payment ecosystem means you can send money in $5 allotments to share a pint with another Twitter user.

Tweet-A-Beer To Buy A Cool One For Your Friends

The online networking app was developed by agencies tenfour and Waggener Edstrom from Portland, Oregon. It allows you to personalize your beer gift with a message, which is posted for your followers to read on Twitter, and you can also choose to add a venue near your current location and a date when you’d like to meet up for a drink. Reggie Wideman from digital agency tenfour told Mashable:

It’s about helping people make real connections — enabling networking and socializing by purchasing each other a beer over Twitter, perfect for fostering the face-to-face connections.
