With 320 million members Twitter is the 5th largest social media platform, and the most popular for consumers to interact with businesses. 54% of consumers will judge a business based on its interactions on Twitter and take action from that, with 77% users feeling more confident in a business once they have interacted with them.

Your business can be made (or destroyed) purely on its reputation. Going back a couple of decades or more, that often meant word of mouth referrals were the backbone of your new business enquiries. If you gave a customer bad service, news could travel fast, but not as far and wide as it could travel today with social media, forums and online review sites which consumers are using more and more for research before buying anything from holidays to cars to shoelaces.
