In this article, we will explore how a live Twitter feed can help your business.

Twitter has over 330 million active users who send over 500 million tweets a day. Twitter provides businesses an opportunity to engage in real-time with their users.

Your live Twitter feed is a continually updating snapshot of how people interact with your brand and products. You can adjust your feed by using hashtags or keywords to fine tune what shows up in your feed.

Places to Show A Live Twitter Feed

  1. Live Events – perhaps the most powerful place to show your feed is at a live event. A live event brings together a large number of people, each with thousands of Twitter followers you can reach.
  2. Retail Space – If you have a store, coffee shop or restaurant, you can show your feed to your patrons, encouraging them to also share a tweet with their followers.
  3. Lobby/Waiting Room – With a lobby or waiting room, you have a captive audience. Showing them your live feed encourages them to share their own experience and interact with other Twitter users.
  4. Internal Network – using our MessagePoint software, you can show live Twitter feeds on every computer in your organization whenever the computer user isn’t actively working on their computer.
