#FlipkartBIG10 Throwback: You will not believe what @Flipkart said on Twitter!

Look what we found in our archives. A fun post about Flipkart’s funniest Twitter moments, from a time when the @Flipkart handle had just about 300K followers!

#FlipkartBIG10 Throwback: You will not believe what @Flipkart said on Twitter!

Twitter has always been a great medium to communicate with our customers, supporters, naysayers and fence-sitters. Be it customer service or just some friendly banter – whether we like it or not, Twitter and the people who engage with us on there keep us honest.

This retrospective blog post/listicle is for our followers. Thank you for keeping us on our toes! Hope you enjoy looking back on our journey with Twitter, as much as we did!

1. Our first Tweet!

Way back in July 2009, a humble online bookstore from India (or was it outer-space?) took to Twitter… little did they know they were on their way to world domination. *evil laugh* #JustKidding

2. Classic Customer Feedback

As early as 2011, it was easier to find a bride/groom on the Internet in India than it was a laptop. Like to think we changed that.

3. Friends

When things get lonely… Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Phoebe, Monica, Joey are always there for you. And Flipkart too.

4. Dealers

Once in a while, someone will ask us for contraband. It happens. We can only help by providing life-advice.

5. #PedalPushers

Petrol prices shot up and the rascals at Unreal Times teased everyone with this article. We took the opportunity to promote healthy living with a little help from our drinking buddies @BumsOnTheSaddle.

6. Rosemary’s Baby

We’re just glad PETA didn’t see this.

7. Whatever happened to @Failgunner?

@Failgunner is just the sort of customer we love. He orders vinyl from us and is brutally honest with his feedback. Bit of a Twitter celebrity too, famous for his one-letter replies.

Thought we’d give him a taste of his own medicine when he reminded us that winters in Bombay were lacking.

If you’re out there buddy, say hello, it’s been a while. 🙂

8. Billion Dollar Club

When AIB comedian, Rohan Joshi, implored for pro-bono retail therapy after our $1B funding, we were cranking out this classic… really loud.

9. Flipkart’s #1 Customer

‘Nuff said.

10. #INDvsAUS – World Cup 2015

Whether India won or lost, it was fun watching the match with our customers on Twitter.

PS – Line and length is essential for a great delivery. 

Once again, a big thank you to all our followers on Twitter… it’s been ‘real’, to say the least. We continue to look forward to interacting with all of you! Do click on the screenshots for the original Tweets.

If you have a favorite @Flipkart tweet, share it in the comment section! There are a few more floating about on the interwebz, that perhaps warrant a chuckle or two.
