Twitter is one of the most popular networking platforms and can be accessed on a browser or an app. Unlike most social media channels, Twitter is the quick fire network that specialises in real-time updates and information. By following your favourite businesses, news networks, or people ­you can stay connected and up-to-date with the latest news and events.

With over 300 million active users, Twitter provides an opportunity (for people and business alike) to reach potential customers and expand your target audience.
