If you’re on Twitter then you most likely understand the power of Twitter. Countless times users have asked Twitter for help to find a random boy, help uncover some tea or better yet keep a family owned bakery open for business.
Jackie Garza, 18, put out a plea to Twitter to support her dad Trinidad Garza’s bakery La Casa Bakery & Cafe in Houston, Texas. She shared a video of her dad hand making pan dulce asking people to retweet to drive up business. “He been thinking about closing but I can’t let that happen,” she tweeted.
Hurricane Harvey took a massive toll on business, which is what led Jackie’s dad to consider shutting down. Jackie showed her followers that her dad doesn’t mess around in the kitchen by sharing multiple different dishes La Casa Bakery & Cafe has to offer.
To say that Twitter pulled through with Jackie’s request is an understatement. The video of her dad has over 1.2 million views and her tweet has over 60,000 retweets. One of those retweets is from the famous singer, Paulina Rubio.
When her tweet blew up Jackie, who is studying business, quickly made the bakery its own Instagram and Twitter.
Since her tweet went viral business has been booming. People have been driving out of their way just to stop at the Garza’s bakery.
The moment isn’t lost on Jackie. She shared on her Instagram how touched she is from all the support and that it all started with a tweet!
This couple drove 45minutes to come to my Bakery. I literally broke down in tears as she told me how much she supported what I was doing. So many people have come up to me and talking about everything that's been going on and I'm still shocked at the fact that TWITTER DID THIS. I'm for ever thankful for every network that contacted me to take the time out of their day to sit down and talk to me. Every article that has written about us. This feels so surreal, it's only been 5 days since the tweet, this is only the beginning. I just turned 18 makin moves tho 😉 #blessed
Her original tweet is filled with replies from happy customers. If you live in Houston go visit!
