Zappos sells shoes online and we would probably think that shoes is what CEO Tony Hsieh (the guy behind @Zappos) is tweeting about. But guess what? We would be wrong to think that. Besides its background, you will hardly see words like “Zappos” or “Shoes” anywhere else. Tony does not tweet to sell. Rather, he chose to share his day to day stories, successfully creating a connection with followers.
