Twitter is a great place to get connected with influential people all over the world, but it’s especially useful for women in business. We can’t think of anywhere else where you can connect with influential women, businesses, and groups, and stay on top of the latest news all in one place.
Twitter has only become more popular and influential, amassing individuals, professionals, media organizations, mega-corporations, and even politicians and the President of the United States. The social media service has over 170 million registered users with at least 36% of them tweeting at least once per day.
