public static void Update(Customer customer, int parameter)
            CustomersDataContext dataContext = new CustomersDataContext(CONNECTION_STRING);
            Customer oldCustomer = (from c in dataContext.Customers.AsEnumerable()
                                 where c.CustomerID == customer.CustomerID
                                 select c).Single();

            //oldCustomer.CustomerID = customer.CustomerID;
            oldCustomer.FirstName = customer.FirstName;
            oldCustomer.LastName = customer.LastName;
            oldCustomer.TwitterScreenName = customer.TwitterScreenName;
