Twitter Activated Snack Vending Machine Amuses Londoners

Twitter snack vending machine in London, UK

Walkers, a British snack food company, has transformed three London bus stops into tweet-activated vending machines as part of its ongoing Do us a Flavour campaign.
A series of short clips on the digital screen show Gary Lineker, an English former footballer and current well-known sports broadcaster, appearing to sit inside the bus stop vending machines.
Passers-by are then encouraged to tweet @Walkers_busstop, triggering the vending machine to dole out free packets of crisps.

While lasting only until September 11, this vending machine gives us a glimpse of the way we will be interacting with them in the future. While Twitter may work for freebies, regular vending options would need to contain some advanced online payment method, such as PayPal or Google Wallet.
