Description: When customers are happy, they want to follow you wherever you go. Twitter can help you stay in touch with customers with small bites of information. Similar to text messaging, Twitter allows people to “follow” your business, getting updates about sales, changes in store hours, specials, menu changes, or almost anything else you want them to know. You’ll learn how to set up a Twitter account and begin building a loyal list of followers. For some businesses, Twitter is their primary promotional tool. Could it be for you, too?
