How to run a company Twitter profile – and why, actually?
According to statista.com portal, Twitter has over 330 million users worldwide. Most of them (as much as 63%) are aged 35–65. The likelihood that they might be interested in your brand’s products and services is high. That is why it is a good idea to invest some time to run a company profile on Twitter.
– Twitter fits well in the current trends: “mobile first”, fast information exchange, short content. Its greatest assets include immediate access to information and instant contact with members of the industry. Being active on this platform facilitates online brand building and promotion” says Anna Ledwoń-Blacha, creative owner of the More Bananas agency.

Post a lot of meaningful content
Twitter means, forts and foremost, a lot of content. Before you start to “tweet”, however, you should get an accurate picture of your target audience. Do not post content thoughtlessly. The quality of your content is important. That is why you should learn what content your recipients are interested in first, and then post carefully thought-out and interesting entries.
Do not write exclusively about your company. No one likes that. Create content that will allow you to interact with others. Retweet every tweet that mentions you.
There are those who still think of Twitter as the advertising column. Meanwhile, this platform is great for discussions. Ask questions, respond to tweets of users and share interesting and valuable content. Do not overuse the advertising aspect. You may post it only when the topic and nature of a discussion allow for it.
React to tweets of others. Be attentive to the comments of your recipients. If they have a problem – try to solve it. It will improve the image of your brand.
