With all the newer, shinier image-driven social media sites like Snapchat and Instagram, many marketers have lost sight of the value of Twitter, preferring to chase after the latest “toy”. But if you’ve been ignoring Twitter it’s time you reexamine it.
As of June 2016, 313 million people are using the platform and posting 500 million tweets a day. That’s a lot of traffic and interest.
