The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article that discusses how to use Twitter to predict future  sales patterns, adjust store inventory and put certain items on sale. From the article:

“We believe executives can make accurate predictions about sales trends by analyzing tweets that mention their products or services, and we have created a model based on Twitter’s keyword-search function to help them do that.”
