Want to know a restaurant’s dinner specials or what the chef ate for breakfast? Just ask—but make it 140 characters or less.
Diners are getting access to the chaos of a busy restaurant kitchen before, during and after their meal thanks to Twitter’s real-time text and photo messages. Chefs are becoming as adept at tweeting as they are at chopping—and changing the way restaurants talk to their customers. Many chefs tweet before dinnertime about what they are planning to cook that night, in some cases with photos, letting fans make informed decisions about where to eat.
