If you thought ordering a pizza online was easy and hassle free (because who really wants to talk on the phone these days?), then you're in luck, because your antisocial world just got even more impersonal. Now you can order Domino's by simply sending a tweet.
Say you are scrolling through your Twitter timeline and suddenly get the urge for some stuffed-crust pizza. All you have to do is send a message to the chain's Twitter account, @Dominos, with the hashtag #EasyOrder, and your pizza will soon be on its way.
Making it even easier to order through this new "tweet-to-order" system, you can actually place your order by just sending Domino's the pizza emoji in a tweet.
"It's the epitome of convenience," says Domino's CEO Patrick Doyle. "We've got this down to a five-second exchange."
To use the "tweet-to-order" system, consumers first have to setup the "Easy Order" feature in your Pizza Profile on the company's website. This setup will allow you to add your Twitter account, so they can send over your pizza after you send them that pepperoni pizza emoji when cravings hit.
"Domino's will then send their Easy Order through an automated direct message, which customers must confirm," Domino's spokesman Tim McIntyre says.
Being able to send a pizza emoji to order Domino's probably seems like a logical step for the company, since 50 percent of sales are placed digitally.
Not only will this new way to order pizza help the company engage its followers and become a trending topic on the social media platform, but it also will help Twitter attract more advertisers as brand and companies continue to innovate the way they use the platform.
Even though people can Push for Pizza or order online, this new service makes ordering your favorite food a piece of cake.
"We want to make it as easy as possible for people to order from us —and this is pretty darned easy," says Doyle.
We can only imagine the other kinds of foods and products people will be able to order on Twitter using emojis. Burgers and fries, anyone?
Pizza lovers can start ordering Domino's by sending pizza emoji tweets on May 20.
