Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)
That is brilliant.

I use our company's twitter to complain about how much I hate my job.

So does this count as a single-serving site? Because it's sort of like a prank, a fake-out. Dare I say like a Rick-Roll. So I guess I'm wondering if a single-serving site is meant to serve the viewer - or the person tricking the viewer into clicking?

Ehhh. Most people on Twitter use it for a form of PR/marketing. Except maybe this guy.
While its usually not as blatant as a brand with a trademarked name (there are of course exceptions), personal marketing runs rampant on Twitter. Why else would tools like Twinfluence and Twitter Grader exist?

PS. Your Twitter Grade is 100 out of 100. Have you thought about monetization?

Yeah, but that whole person-as-brand thing is a bit of a cul-de-sac. It's not so much that it's innacurate as it is stifling.

Oh yeah, I should have provided a link with the above comment.
