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

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

This time, it's a deal with Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX  ) 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.
