First Sponsorship Deal Done on Twitter?

Bleacher Report has a great account of what it's calling the first sponsorship deal done on Twitter - a deal discussed between @Kenny_Wallace and @ZimmzangCEO.

Just before Kenny Wallace entered his No. 28 Nationwide Chevrolet at Daytona International Speedway on Feb 13, 2010, @Kenny_Wallace tweeted that he needed $7200.00 for four sets of tires. He needed the tires for the Feb 20 Stater Brothers 300 at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.

Just a few hours after Wallace raced to a 16th place finish at Daytona, he received a tweet from @ZimmzangCEO, letting him know that he would look great driving the zimmzang.com car. Burke also suggested in the tweet, that this, “could be the first ever Twitter deal.”
