However, Jeff Jenkins, Chief Marketing officer for Carl's Jr. and Hardee's, spoke to USA Today about the tweets.

"This is about generating a conversation around a partnership,'' he said. "The tweets are obviously a start to try and see where the dialogue goes … have a lot of fun with it, and see if they find the spirit of it as fun as we do.’’

Here are some more of Carl's Jr.'s "BIG IDEAS."
