All of which is really just scratching the surface- we recommend you take a look and familiarise yourself with this area of the site as there’s a chance you may want to bookmark it for ongoing reference.
The move has come at a time when Twitter’s financial health has seen better days, with disappointing (if not alarming) advertising numbers doing the rounds this year, continuing the popular rumour that the network is on the verge of death. We couldn’t agree less- our honest hope is that there’s plenty of life left in the old 14- character dog yet- but clearly this fresh arsenal is aimed at trying to bolster its offering with business users, which are likely to consider spending some money amplifying their presence.
