TechCrunch is reporting that Panera Bread has blocked all bit.ly url shortening links from users who happen to be using Panera’s free WiFi. I guess that Panera corporate is getting worried about something. These are the worrisome things that come to my mind;
- A laptop-wielding customer could be Tweeting about the massive caloric content in one of their amazing bear-claws.
- A 15-year old waiting for her mom to order could be posting a message on Facebook stating that "These lines at Panera in Yorktown are like really like insane."
- A caffeine-crazed food blogger may put out a Tweet saying that Panera should not make their coffee so strong.
- The new group leader of a local social networking group may write a short blog post about the lack of service at his local Panera, as he has waited 20 minutes for a server to take his order. (They don't have servers at Panera, Einstein)
Lots to worry about, Mr. Panera……
