Can Twitter help your business make money? You are likely the only person who can answer that question so why not see what all the hype is for yourself.

Twitter is a potentially game-changing tool and one of the fastest growing Social Networks today. Still, the perception that “Twitter is just for kids!” or “Who cares what you are having for lunch?” have kept many business professionals away.  Others have created accounts and then can’t easily understand the mechanics so they stop using it before they invest enough time to understand its value.  twitter

Airlines Soar with Customers on Twitter

by Green Apple on August 19, 2010

A recent article on BloombergBusinessweek.com highlights yet another example of businesses using Twitter for customer service-the airline companies! JetBlue, Delta and Southwest Airlines have capitalized on the social media tool to offer their customers the best service possible. Mike Brice, a regular Delta flier, tweeted the airline’s customer service department and rebooked his missed flight. Southwest and JetBlue advocates have been able to voice their questions or complaints with the airlines without waiting in lines or on-hold.
