    Starbucks and Twitter have joined forces to make spreading the love via lattes a reality with a couple of clicks.

    Sometimes all it takes to make someone’s day is the gift of caffeine. Now, even if you’re separated by thousands of miles, giving a friend an instant pick-me-up is as easy as sending a tweet.

    Starbucks and Twitter have joined forces to make spreading the love via lattes a reality with a couple of clicks.

    Here’s how it works.

    You, the coffee fairy, log onto the tweet-a-coffee page, link your Starbucks account, type in the twitter handle of your pal, and hit the Tweet button.

    Within moments, your buddy has the keys to the cappuccino kingdom, in the form of a 5-dollar gift card.

    All they have to do is order up their beverage, show the person behind the counter the bar code, and then sit back, enjoy their dose of liquid love, and bask in the awesomeness that is you. (

    If the e-commerce via Twitter works out as well as anticipated, many believe it could help usher in a whole new way for people to shop.

    So far, the only reported downside is that the Starbucks tweet-a-coffee feature is currently in its early beta testing phase and only available in the US.
