    Skittles digital marketing
    On Tuesday, March 3, 2009, Skittles launched a new web-based marketing campaign that replaced their website with a real-time Twitter feed.[5] For a little more than 24 hours, any post on Twitter that included the word "skittles" was aggregated and displayed on the Skittles homepage. On Wednesday, March 4, 2009, Skittles ended the Twitter component of the campaign and linked instead to its Facebook fan page. now redirects to the Wikipedia page for Skittles.
