Twitter isn’t the first social network we think about when we talk about food. And no. We don’t usually “Tweet” our meal. That’s reserved for Instagram. But it seems that Twitter really wants in on the “food party” and is now creating it’s own Food Council to get people to start talking food on Twitter and Tweeting a lot more about food.
Announced just last week, Twitter Food Council is essentially,
[quote]a group of leading culinary figures who regularly join the Twitter conversation on all things food and food culture.[/quote]
Janice Morris, who announced the initiative, explained that users can now join the conversation with the official hashtag #FoodFlock. The initiative was created to encourage conversation around food on the platform. It is led by Alex Guarnaschelli (@guarnaschelli) who is also a chef – the other members are top chefs and influencers who represent different aspects of food – cuisines and interests.
