The main benefit to Twitter is being able to connect to your consumer audience and announce specials, sales. Other promotions. You may also be able to connect to others in related fields to expand your service base or be able to offer discounts to your customers.

Installing an application like TweetDeck help employees so they don't have to constantly refresh the page to see who’s saying what to who and when.
