So, today I bring you my thoughts about Twitter… you’ve heard me speak of it countless time. I’ve found several great green businesses, clients and so much more on Twitter. My relaunch was almost completely brought together by Twitter followers! My Flaunt It! Monday series continues to be sponsored by people I have found or have found me on Twitter. An estimated 50% of my growing traffic comes from Twitter.
So, What can Twitter do for your business? It can make or break you, it can put your business on the hot seat in an instant … No, I’m not kidding! Heard of the Motrin Moms? Or the Chris Brogan and the Kmart/Izea uproar?
On a smaller scale I had some issues with Direct TV about 2 weeks ago, I called, I complained, I got no where. Meanwhile, as I complained on the phone I was complaining on Twitter… it was 6am and they were saying I owed $260 for 6 days of service and had cut me off, I was not a happy camper. So, a few hour later Direct TV was following me and within 24 hours and several tweets back and forth my account went from $260 to -$4.22… now THAT is customer service! Thank you!!
