(eamcc via storify) As of Friday afternoon, August 26th, Twitter trending is all about Hurricane Irene. “Saturday AND Sunday” rises to the preferred “code.” It’s fascinating to see how enterprises post news and demonstrate customer care (CRM) with a call to action.

Irene update: The city is now under a hurricane watch. Damaging winds and flooding are expected late Saturday night and Sunday

Interesting to see how “Saturday and Sunday” get shaped into a variety of calls to action. Each provides a sample of grass-roots customer care.
Closing with benefits. Here’s the most engaging notice of customer care.
Have a great weekend If you need us we are here until 9:00 tonight 8-6 Saturday and we have technicians on call Sunday and around the clock

Simple store closings. These notices show the lowest level of engagement.
UPDATE: Saks just said they’ll be closed Saturday and Sunday.

Broadway rapidly announcing plans to shut down on Saturday and Sunday…

Engaging store closings. If you didn’t know this place before, you just may want to visit next week.
Hate to do this, but we’re going to be closed on Saturday and Sunday. Lobsters can handle raging rapids, but Mobstas should stay indoors!

Due to the weather and mass transit shutdowns @Stellina_NYC will be closed on Saturday and Sunday. Stay safe and dry.

Emergency calls to non-action. Some stores just wisely tell their customers to stay away. The call to RT is very Paul Revere.
RT @MidtownComics: Pls RT! Due to the storm and the MTA shutting down we will be closed this SATURDAY and SUNDAY.

Emergency postponements. Sports and event-sponsors want to keep visitors safe, engaged, and loyal!
Our games Saturday and Sunday vs @Mets have been postponed due to Hurricane Irene. Tonight’s game will still take place. #comeonirene

Emergency “we’ll keep you posted” . Interested how colleges especially are right on top of notifying their students. Emergency notifications are well in place, including Twitter.
Due to MTA shutdown, classes and class shows for Saturday and Sunday are canceled. We’ll begin notifying students later today.

There’s always room for humor, of course.
Prediction: #Mets will not lose more ground to the Braves on Saturday and Sunday.
