Results of an online survey about preferred tyres

In a commission driven business model like India where every tyre vendor sells tyres of every company they would obviously try to sell the tyre that will fetch them most profits (exceptions exist, I know!). So to make a good choice I decided to run a survey on Twitter and Reddit. Posting the results of the same. I received total 41 responses.

Is Flipkart tracking people on Twitter?

Wondering if Flipkart associates your Twitter account and Flipkart account internally (since there’s no such option visible to me on their site).

I had tweeted in the morning about getting a laptop, and later I get an email from Flipkart advertising HP Laptops.
