This was recently reported in a Wall Street Journal article.

By monitoring the tweet “buzz”, researchers postulate that consumer behavior trends are tracked easier and quicker through Twitter’s keyword search function to help companies make accurate decisions on inventories.

A hat tip to @kcperry1 for the article summary.
