This is a micro-blogging platform with which we communicate and connect with other users using 140 characters through frequent answers to one simple question … what are you doing right now? .

What can your company on Twitter? You can promote your products, extend your brand, generate interest in the company and retain customers. Besides being a perfect tool to build relationships, also in a strategic way to drive traffic to your website

Think like company very well what you are going to communicate, remember that you only have 140 characters to express yourself, and your content should bring something interesting to those who follow you, so I suggest if you post a link to expand your information. Do not focus so much on what are you doing? But rather on what can bring my business to my niche market?

Another thing that might be useful is that you have many applications that increase your productivity in your twitter profile. These are some of these:
