Texas Donut Shop Filled With Customers After Sad Tweet Goes Viral

Billy's Donuts is thriving after viral tweet

When his father's donut shop in Texas didn't have a successful grand opening, Billy By tweeted about how sad it made him.

He shared pictures of the inside of the shop, and it looked pretty great, and his dad did look quite upset.

It soared to more than 300-thousand retweets and more than 700-thousand likes, prompting many who saw the tweet to want to stop by for a bite.

Billy By helped spread the word about his dad's donut shop - and now they're consistently selling out donuts. The next day, he shared another update from the Billy's Donut Shop account: "We completely sold out of donuts and kolaches!"

"My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop", By wrote, accompanied by photos of overflowing shelves, stocked to the brim with donutty goodness.

On Sunday it was a very different story at Billy's Donuts, which is named after Billy himself, as customers queued out of the door at the store in Missouri City. We completely sold out of donuts and kolaches! "You are all awesome". The tweet even got the attention of the local media, with Fox 26 in Houston swinging by to try out the pastry and interview the owner's son Billy By.

Then, on Monday, the doughnut store was sold out again after representatives from Twitter stopped by to pick up the tab for the morning's customers. "This means so much to my family", he added.

As a gift, the Twitter team gave them a brand-printed yellow shirt, of the same color as the shop's interiors.
