On Monday Billy shared pictures of Twitter's visit to the shop.
But Billy's dad wasn't "sad" for long. The mom-and-pop store that was once empty was now a viral sensation.
That love was on full display this weekend in Missouri City, Texas, when a young man's single tweet may have saved his father's newly opened donut shop. He also put up the address of the place in the next tweet.
"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop", By wrote, sharing a photo of his dad behind the counter of his new shop. Soon enough, the sales of the shop were hitting the roof and the owner was definitely left with a smile. Then Twitter magic took over.
When Billy first made the post, "Billy's Donuts" reportedly had 71 followers on Instagram; now, it has over 59,000. New York Police Find Lost Engagement Ring, Twitter Helps Officers Track Down the Couple. I'm so glad to see the power of social media and its good impact to the real life.
Isn't that awesome? The shop had people lining up waiting for their turn to buy the candies the next morning.
The tweet went viral, with more than 300,000 retweets at last count. What's more like a cherry on the cake is the official Twitter account talking about it too.
Twitter picked up Billy's tweet saying, "You donut want to miss out on Billy's and neither do we!" Maybe the clientele just needed some direction as to where their favorite donut shop moved to, but now that they know they'll be back.
