CoTweet clients include Whole FoodsStarbucks and Coca-Cola. There is some client overlap between the two companies. 

Engle will lead the Bay Area digital innovation lab. Future plans include integrating CoTweet with Facebook and allowing companies to update fan pages and profiles with the service.
