A lot of businesses have taken to social networking in droves to market, advertise and attract new clients. Twitter is a powerful platform for busy business owners to connect with a huge population of potential clients. Twitter lets your business tweet short updates in 140 characters or less and reach out to your fans, followers and prospects.
