Of all the stores in NYC, Daffy's might have simultaneously the strangest and most practical approach to Twitter we've ever seen. Here's how it works: Several times a day, they'll tell you where their trucks are going. The most recent tweet, for example, says "A truck bound for Manhattan Soho is scheduled to leave Daffy's dock at 8 AM and should arrive in 120 minutes.#fb" The one before it: "A truck bound for Brooklyn is scheduled to leave Daffy's dock at 2 PM and should arrive in 120 minutes.#fb." For Daffy's stalkers, this could be useful, but you'd have to be really obsessed. [Twitter]
