Starbucks Malaysia Twitterlicious promotion

For this (work) week only, Starbucks Malaysia is having their Twitterlicious promotion, where they'll tweet a picture (which has details and a list of the day's selected stores) on their Twitter account (twitter.com/starbucksMY), and if you retweet it and show that (and the picture) to the barista at the day's selected stores, you can get a Grande-sized frappucino for half price for a predetermined length of time (3 p.m. to 7 p.m.). 

This means one would need two things:
  1. A Twitter account, and 
  2. A smart device... at least (I think?)

The response has been freaking hilarious to say the least - there are people on the Starbucks Malaysia Facebook page asking questions like "What is RT" and "Can I print out and show the picture?", etc. 

People - if you don't have a smart device and/or not on Twitter, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU!!! YOU DON'T DESERVE A HALF-PRICED GRANDE FRAPP!!

(Un)Fortunately for me, I only fulfill half the requirements and I think I'll puke if I have to pay for a Grande drink, even at half price.

Oh well.
