A Triple Shot of Optimism for the Twitter IPO, Brought to You by Starbucks

Twitter's IPO opportunity just keeps getting bigger, Fool contributor Tim Beyers says in the following video.

This time, it's a deal with Starbucks that's cause for optimism. The coffee king has teamed with the microblogger to create a gifting service called Tweet-a-Coffee, whereby users can gift anyone on Twitter who has a Starbucks account, $5 in coffee credit.

Talk about interesting timing. Earlier this month, Twitter struck a deal with Comcast to turn the service into an ad-hoc remote, whereby clicking on a related tweet could take you to live TV. Each succeeding deal increases the odds of Twitter becoming the leading social platform for mobile commerce, Tim argues.
